Record a Presentation and Upload it to Your Professor's Stream Video Channel (Students)

This document provides an overview of how to record a presentation in Zoom and share it on a Stream video channel. The screenshots in this article may not look exactly like the version of Zoom you are running; if not, try updating Zoom on your computer.

  • Step 1 - Open Zoom/Start a Meeting
      1. Open the Zoom application on your computer.
      2. If prompted to login, choose the SSO option and login with your SIUE e-ID and password.
      3. Click New Meeting. Note: If you do not want to start with video, click the drop-down next to New Meeting and un-check the box for Start with Video.

      4. Click Join Audio Conference by Computer to use a computer headset or internal microphone. Or click the Phone Call option to call in with your telephone. 

  • Step 2 - Record the Presentation
      1. Once you have started a Zoom meeting, locate the menu at the bottom the Zoom window.

      2. If you want to show your video, make sure your camera is enabled. Click the Start Video button to enable your camera. 

      3. If you want to record a PowerPoint presentation or actions on your computer, click the Share button.

      4. This will bring up a new window prompting you to select a window or application to share. Choose what you want to share (i.e. Screen) and click the Share button at the bottom-right corner of the window. 

      5. Note the menu moves to the top of the Zoom window when you share your screen.

      6. To begin recording, click the More button at the top of the Zoom window. 

      7. Choose Record on this computer from the drop-down menu. 

      8. A blinking red dot will appear near the top of the screen indicating the recording has started. 

      9. To stop the recording, click the More button at the top of the Zoom window.

      10. Choose Stop Recording from the drop-down menu.

        (NOTE: If you have not shared your screen, the Record/Stop Recording options will be at the bottom of the Zoom window.)

      11. To make more videos, simply Record and Stop Recording again. Each time you Stop Recording, Zoom produces another video file. To take a break in the recording without creating a new video file, use the Pause Recording option instead. 

      12. When you are finished recording, click the More button and then choose End Meeting from the drop-down menu. (NOTE: If you have not shared your screen, the End Meeting button will be at the bottom of the Zoom window.)

      13. Click End Meeting for All.

        end meeting for all

      14. Your recording(s) will automatically begin converting to .mp4(s).


      15. Zoom will automatically organize your recording files in your computer's Documents area in a folder called Zoom. This location should open when the recording is done processing. To get back to it later, go to Documents, then click the Zoom folder, and browse the sub-folders labeled by recording date. 
      16. Zoom folder

      17. Your video file(s) will be labeled Zoom_#.mp4. Tip: As soon as your video is processed, rename the file from the generic "zoom_#" to something more meaningful, such as "Presentation on Mitochondria Fall 2020."  This will make searching for your file easier if you need to upload/share it later.

  • Step 3 - Upload Your Video to Your Professor's Stream Channel
      1. Click the link to your course channel (this will likely be provided in your Blackboard course or in an email from your professor).

      2. Click the Sign In button and log into Stream with your SIUE email address and password.

      3. Locate the video file (e.g. .mp4, .mov) on your computer. Drag and drop your video files anywhere on the channel screen (or click the select more files link to browse for the files on your computer)

      4. Select a default language primarily spoken in your videos. This will allow Microsoft to provide automatic captions for your video. Use the drop-down menu to select English or the desired language from the list. 

      5. Click Save

      6. Give your video a name and description. 

      7. Click the Publish now button at the bottom of the window when you are ready to add your video to the channel. 

      8. If you want to review your video, click the my videos link above the publish confirmation window. 

      9. To get back to your course channel later (to view comments, for example), click the course channel link originally provided by your professor.
