Recording a Meeting and Sharing a Meeting - Blackboard Collaborate


You can have multiple recordings during one session. If you decide to continue recording a session after you have stopped, a new recording is saved and added to the list of recordings for that session.
When creating a session make sure to enable the download option for the recordings (see instructions below.)

  1. During your session, click Start Recording, under Session Menu in the upper left corner. The recording camera appears on with a red dot while recording is in progress.
  2. To finish recording, open the Session menu and select Stop Recording.

How do I find the recordings?
You can view recordings in courses you are enrolled in. You may be able to download recordings. Moderators must allow session recording downloads for each session.
Go to Collaborate, open the Menu, and select Recordings.

Recording email
Collaborate emails moderators links to their recordings. This requires a valid email address. Moderators who own the session or join by personal email get the email.

Enabling Recording sessions to be downloaded
You can enable this feature when setting up the session or after session has ended.
