How do I record a conference?

As part of creating or editing a conference, you can choose to set up your conference to be recorded. Once this setting is enabled, you can start and stop the recording as necessary in the Conferences interface.

After the conference has concluded, the recorded segments will be published as one recording. You can view recorded conferences in the Conferences Index Page.

Recording Restrictions

  • When creating your conference, you must select the record option to record the conference.
  • Canvas' standard recording feature will store your recordings in Conferences for 14 days and then remove them automatically.
  • Recorded conferences cannot be downloaded.


For alternative storage and download options, contact BigBlueButton to set up a hosting account.

Note: Creating a conference is a course permission. If you cannot create a conference, your institution has restricted this feature.
