YuJa (Faculty): Record a Video with Zoom and Post it to Blackboard

This document provides an overview of how to lecture a presentation and post it to Blackboard. Zoom updates it's software on a regular basis with important security items as well as updates to features. To make sure you have the most current version, check for updates.

Remember to do a short test before recording the actual presentation. Choosing the Record to Cloud option automatically uploads to YuJa, but it could take up to 24 hours to access your recording.
