Asynchronous availability of lecture recordings is a must-have feature for most classes. Faculty would like absentees to be able to go back and watch lecture recordings, and Zoom's seamless meeting recording feature make this process simple.

However, you get a limited amount of cloud storage space on Zoom, which means professors often need to download and store offline copies on their laptops.

To help you solve this common issue, Acadly records your lectures on its servers automatically and makes it available to you after the lecture ends.

How this works

1. Create your Zoom meeting via Acadly

Please refer to this Help Center article that describes how you can create your Zoom meetings from within Acadly.

2. Create a "Cloud Recording" of your meeting in Zoom

To learn how to create a Cloud Recording, please refer to the official help video from Zoom below:

Please wait for some time after the lecture ends. The "Class Meeting Recordings" section will appear automatically, along with a link to download the meeting recording.

You can download the meeting as a video file, or share the link with your students.


  • Even if you delete the meeting recording from Zoom, it will still be available on Acadly

  • The meeting recording will be made available to you automatically

  • The meeting recording feature is available to all paid subscribers of Zoom
