Can I record my Zoom session?

The recommendations for different scenarios:

  • It's generally accepted that public events and symposiums will be recorded.
  • Ensure that invited speakers, panelists, or presenters sign a release form.
  • Ensure only the speakers and presentation will be recorded.
  • Use post-production to remove identifiable participants.
  • Consider getting only the speakers in a Zoom Meeting; while all the attendees watch a simultaneous Livestream on Facebook, Youtube (Public/Unlisted) or NUS Mediaweb (Internal Only).
  • Inform students during Orientation Week that sessions will be recorded.
  • Access should be for instructors, supporting personnel and enrolled students only.
  • Service is provided to aid revision.
  • It should not be made mandatory that students have to turn ON their webcams.
  • Encourage use of Virtual Background.
  • If any part of the video were to be released outside the class, get written consents from students who appear or are personally identifiable in the recording.
  • Should not be recorded

Should I notify my participants that the meeting is recorded?

  • You must ensure that invited speakers, panelists, or presenters sign an appropriate speaker release form. 
  • The audience should be told:
    • That you are recording the event.
    • How you plan to use the recording, including who will view it.
    • That they are authorizing the use of the recording as described, if they proceed.

Can I secure my cloud recording?

  • All Zoom cloud recording are password protected.
  • However, the video shared URL and password may still be passed around. 
  • We have taken an additional step that by default all cloud recording videos require viewers to sign in with NUS Zoom account.
  • Never make the videos available for download or distribute the MP4 anywhere else.
  • Post the link to the recording if you need to in a closed secure environment if possible. Use LumiNUS Module Announcement or Teams Group Chat.
