Can I connect multiple Zoom accounts to my EducateMe organization?

Yes. You can connect as many Zoom accounts as you need to the organization.

Can I use one Zoom account for holding simultaneous live sessions?

No, this is the limitation on Zoom side. To hold multiple live sessions via Zoom at the same time, you'd need to connect multiple Zoom accounts.

Why the recorded webinar was not uploaded to the platform?

  1. Check if you have enabled automatic recording of meetings in Organization Settings → Webinar settings. Note: there is still a chance that the default settings was changed for a particular meeting and the automatic recording was disabled.

  2. Check if you're using the paid Zoom account.

  3. Check with Zoom support team if they have sent the recording to us once the meeting was over.

Who can download the recording?

Learners cannot download webinar recordings. Instructors can download recordings of assigned courses from Files Library. Admins can download recordings right from the video player and/or Files Library.
