Can I record my BigBlueButton sessions?

Yes. Recordings are enabled where you have a MoodleCloud site.

For our 45 day Free Trial sites, recordings are available for 7 days and for our MoodleCloud paid plans, recordings are made available for 1 year after the session has finished, so those learners who were not able to join the session live can view it at a later date.

These recordings are stored on the BigBlueButton server and are not downloadable, so they do not count towards your file storage on your MoodleCloud site.

When setting up the BigBlueButtonBN activity, ensure the Session can be recorded is checked on the activity settings and the Instance type is Room/Activity with recordings.

The record button will then be available when the BigBlueButton session is started.

Remember you need to click this button to record the session.
