Record Webex Meetings

You can record your Webex meeting for later review by your students and add the link to your D2L course. Webex recordings take some time generating, so you will not see them immediately on the Recordings section of the site.

Record a Meeting

  1. Start your Webex meeting. Once the meeting has begun, you will see a Record button when you hover at the bottom of the screen.
    Indicates Record button
  2. Click the Record button and you will see the recorder. Click on the red Record button.
    Indicates Record button You may see the option to record your meeting either in the cloud or on the computer. You should choose Record in cloud.
    Indicates Record in cloud option
  3. Once your recording has started, you will see two options - Pause and Stop.
    Identifies Pause and Stop
    • If you click on the Pause button, you can resume your recording at any point in the meeting. This will result in one recording and one file.
    • If you click the Stop button, you can't resume recording. You will have to start a new recording, resulting in two recordings and two files.
    • If you are unsure, Pause your recording, then you can Stop if necessary without any detrimental effects.
  4. When you are done, click the Stop button.

At this point, the recording will be generated by the Webex service. This is not an instantaneous process and may take up to 24 hours - the longer the meeting the more time it will take. Once it has been generated, you can add a link to the recording in your D2L course.
