Microsoft Teams’ meeting recording feature is a great way to record and share your lessons. If a student can’t attend your lesson, they have a slow internet connection, or you just want to record a demonstration for another time, recording the lesson works really well.
Each video recording is streamed in the background to Microsoft Stream, which means you don’t have to worry about storage space on your computer or manually uploading your video. Just a few minutes after you’ve finished recording your lesson, it will be available to all of the students in your class.
Why should you use Microsoft Teams to record your lessons over any other option?
- Storage on your computer or laptop is not a concern
- Videos are automatically uploaded for you to Microsoft Stream
- Only the students and staff assigned to your Teams class can access the videos
- If you choose to you can easily share your recordings with a wider audience.
- Students can use the Microsoft Stream mobile app to download and view your videos offline
- Microsoft Stream can create captions for your videos automatically
- You can pin your videos to a tab in Teams
If you’re a school, college or university, Microsoft is also extremely generous with how much data you can store in Microsoft Stream. It’s very unlikely that you will ever run out of space to store your videos.
To find out how much storage space your school has for videos, open Microsoft Stream on the web, click the Settings cog and choose Admin settings, Usage details. Here you can also set a notification if you’re nearing your storage limit.
