How to Record Group Presentations as a Student

If your professor asked you to record a group presentation, you can record it synchronously or asynchronously.

If you choose to record it synchronously, you can set up a Zoom meeting between you and your group-mates and record the meeting. Take turns speaking and flipping through the presentation slides. After you're done, the person who set up the meeting will have access to the recording. They can find it by going to, clicking Sign In, then clicking the Recordings tab in the left-hand menu. There they can access the recording, trim it, and share its link with the professor. They can also download the recording and upload the .MP4 file to Panopto, where there are more editing options. See this guide for instructions on how to record and edit Zoom meetings:

If you wish to record the presentation asynchronously, we recommend using Panopto. Each member of your group will be able to record themselves and their screen in their own time using this tool. When you are ready, you can splice the separate recordings together.

Please note that the group-mate that ends up combining all the recordings will need access to each recording. By default, all your recordings are private. We recommend making a folder and adding all the group members to it as "creators." Save all your recordings in that folder. 

Once you're ready to share the final presentation with your professor and/or class, you may need to submit it to a video assignment or video discussion in Canvas.
