Create Academic Recordings

Mediaspace via the Media Center

Classroom Recordings

When you make a classroom recording request, you may not have included who to make it available to. When there is a student need for the recording, please email the following information to the Media Center:

  • ​Course number and section number (e.g. 9999-10 Web Portal Law)
  • Class date(s)
  • Student email address

Zoom Recordings

Up to 2 hours after you end the Zoom meeting/recording, you will receive a notification email from Zoom stating that “Cloud Recording - *name of Zoom meeting* is now available”.

Zoom cloud recording email notification

Please forward this entire email to the Media Center at media@law.gwu.edu and state who you would like it made available to the entire class, or certain individuals. Please provide email address(es) if the recording is just for certain individuals.

Please include the entire course and section number (e.g. 9999-10 Web Portal Law) when making requests from us, if not already in the Zoom title.

We request the Zoom notification email because of the necessary details it provides (meeting "topic"/name, date, and time). These details help us efficiently find the correct recording on our Media Server. We do not require the recording link and passcode.

NOTE:

The Zoom emails state that the cloud recording will delete in 4 days; this means they will delete from your personal @law Zoom account storage in 4 days. This limit cannot be changed for any reason.

@law Zoom cloud recordings are automatically uploaded to our Media Server and saved there. Zoom recordings on our Media Server are not accessible to anyone outside of the Media Center employees, regardless of class recording/release preference, unless the request above comes into media@law.gwu.edu.

Thus, if the class was held via Zoom, the professor needs to inform us via email to make it accessible to the class, even if it is a release all class. Zoom recordings do not have an automatic release mechanism like traditional automated classroom recordings.
