Sharing Zoom Cloud Recording Password in D2L

For privacy reasons, Zoom cloud recordings are assigned a random password. Students must enter this password to access the recording in the D2L course via Communication > Zoom > Cloud Recordings. This is what students would see when accessing a recording in D2L:

The password can be displayed or copied by clicking on the icons right below the Recording thumbnail.

As the meeting host/ instructor, when the cloud recording is available, you will also receive an email notification with the direct link to the recording as well as the password, which you may share separately with your students, if you wish.

Do More with Cloud Recordings

If you need to get full details of your cloud recordings or need to adjust the settings for them, please sign in to the Zoom web portal with your host account. Click Recordings. Adjust the date range and status, then search by host, meeting ID, topic, or keyword. You will see a list of cloud recordings that you started. Click Search, and Share.

Here, you may adjust the sharing options, locate the recording URL and associated password, etc.
