How do I record my screen using Tufts WebEx?

Instructors can create a screen recording video using their Tufts WebEx Meeting Center.

Instructors can either post a link to this screen recording (on Trunk, e-mail or WordPress) or they can download the MP4 video file and upload it to the Trunk Media Gallery tool and stream it to their students (or embed it in a Trunk Lesson).

Note: Best practice is to make a short test screen recording video before embarking on a full-lecture screen recording.

One minute of video requires about 1.2MB of storage.  Make sure you have enough storage space available to complete your recording.

You might consider downloading all of your WebEx videos and upload them to your Media Galley / "My Media" space (which has no storage limit) and then delete the recordings from your WebEx storage space.
