Add a Live recording to a Module
If you’ve recorded the video conference in the cloud, you can import the recording from the Calendar to a Module of a Group, where you are an instructor.
This feature enables you to make the recording accessible to everyone in the Group, including those who weren’t able to join the Live session.
PLEASE NOTE: recording a video conference in the cloud depends on your settings and the type of service subscription you started the Live session with. WeSchool currently supports Live recording for the following providers: Google Meet and Zoom.
Once the Live session’s finished, to add the recording to a Module, enter the Calendar and proceed as follows:
- click on the Live session to view all its details; you can find the recording below Available recordings. Click on the download icon to start the import:
PLEASE NOTE: depending on the service you’ve launched the Live session with, you may need to wait up to 2 hours to generate the video recording. If you cannot view the recording immediately after the Live session has ended, please try again later.
- you can now choose the title and the preview of the recording. Click on Choose the Module to continue:
- finally, to choose the Module to add the recording click on it to select it. You can also search for the Module or filter the list results by Group.
Add the recording by clicking on the Import button:
PLEASE NOTE: you can import the recording into any Group where you are an instructor.
