How do I make a Zoom recording available to my students via Brightspace?

Make sure you’re logged in at your Purchase-authenticated Zoom account at

Record your Zoom meeting locally to your computer or device (please do not record to Zoom Cloud) and upload the video file to your YouTube account. If you do not have a YouTube channel, see Create YouTube Channel for a tutorial.

Upload your Zoom recording MP4 file to YouTube Studio and choose to make the video either Public or Unlisted (Public if you want others to be able to view your video; Unlisted if you want the video to only be available to those who have access to the link).

If you have a video longer than 15 minutes, you will need to verify your YouTube account which just takes a few minutes and involves getting a code via text message that you then enter on your account page. See Upload Video Longer than 15 Minutes

Brightspace: you can embed your YouTube videos into your Brightspace course by:

  • copying the YouTube video URL. You do not need the embed code.
  • In the desired module, click on the “Upload/Create” menu > “Video or Audio
  • A pop-up window will open where you can paste the URL you’ve copied. The video title and a preview will automatically appear. Edit the title if needed. Click the Save button
  • You will now see the YouTube player embedded in your content module

For assistance with Zoom, please contact Campus Technology Services (CTS).
