Eckstein Hall Classroom Recording

This how-to pertains to classrooms 155, 226, 246, 257, 263, 267, 355, 357, 363, 367, and 444. For rooms 204, 255, 304, and 455, using your laptop's built in equipment should suffice to capture the recording. If you would like better sound, a USB boundary microphone can be located in those rooms and used to improve your laptop's audio quality. The only configuration that needs to be done is changing your microphone settings in Teams. A majority of the time Teams will default to the boundary microphone for you and no settings need to be changed. 

Like everything in the Office Suite of tools, there are multiple ways to do the steps below. These are what we consider to be the easiest, and best practice for most.

  1. Schedule Your Class for the Semester
    • Schedule your class on your Teams calendar to create a place to start a meeting. The only participant of the meeting will be you. Permissions for sharing will be added after the class has finished recording.

Teams Meeting Recordings and Expiration

Recordings will be saved in one of two destinations, based on how the meeting was scheduled:

  • Teams channel meetings will be saved to the Microsoft Teams site under the channel's Files tab in the Recordings folder.
  • Teams meetings scheduled via Outlook will be saved to the OneDrive for Business account of the person who started the recording. By default, these videos are saved for 180 days.

If the Teams meeting recordings you own must be kept, you change the video's expiration setting. Learn more about Teams meeting recordings and expiration.
