You can use the built-in recording function of Zoom, as well as Mediaspace, to record, edit, upload and embed your Zoom Session recordings into a Brightspace course.

What is MediaSpace?

Kaltura MediaSpace is a cloud-based video management system for storing, publishing, and sharing videos, video collections, and other media. Your personal My Media gallery is integrated into Brightspace so your uploaded videos can be seamlessly embedded into your course page.

Recording Zoom Sessions

NOTE: Cloud recordings for all Carleton University Zoom accounts are automatically deleted from the Zoom cloud after 120 days, and remain in the trash for an additional 30 days. However, all Zoom cloud recordings are automatically uploaded to your Mediaspace account, and are stored for 4 years after the last time they’re viewed.

Editing Support Resources

There are three available options for editing your Zoom recordings: Mediaspace, a free video editor, or using the Media Commons editing facilities.


The beginning and end of recordings can be trimmed directly within Mediaspace. If you require more intricate editing capabilities, a free software is recommended.

Free Video Editor

Windows users can utilize Windows’ built-in video editor, Clipchamp. Mac users can utilize QuickTime or iMovie.

The Media Commons

If you require more in-depth video and audio editing solutions, you can book an editing suite in The Media Commons. The Media Commons offers accessible and ergonomically friendly multimedia creation suites, top-of-the-line 24” M1 iMacs, Blue Yeti microphones, software for video editing, screen recording, audio recording and editing (Final Cut Pro X, iMovie, Garageband, Audacity, and Camtasia) and orientations available from media technicians during office hours.
