Recording Process Overview:
While in a Zoom meeting, click the record button. A recording of the class session will then start and it will save as a mp4 file on your local computer. The Zoom recording will capture the video and audio of  whoever is talking and the screen shared content. You can start/pause/stop the recording by clicking the button. Once your lecture is complete end the meeting (You do not have to hit stop recording before ending the meeting).

Remote Work Guide

Option 1 -  – “Mydesk” - Your virtual machine! -- Directions Here

  • This option offers absolutely the EASIEST way to connect to your OUHSC email and file shares from off campus. This option allows you to connect to a pre-built encrypted Windows desktop that runs in your web browser. It has basic productivity apps like Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, and the Google Chrome browser. 
  • This method is recommended for everyone but also including those connecting with a personal device that has not been encrypted by COAH IT. This method offers an encrypted environment.

Option 2 – “Global Protect” using PingID

  • Multi-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to online accounts and is required for a number of systems at OU when connecting from off-campus. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.
