Teams class meetings or calls can be recorded to capture audio, video, and screen sharing activity. All recordings are available to participants for viewing from Teams, while course instructors or meeting Organizers are also able to download recordings.
Who can record
Organizers and Presenters. See MS Teams Meetings and Roles The default setting for Teams meetings is that all invited are in the Presenter role. Guests cannot view or start or stop a recording.
Making recordings available
Scheduling meetings using Teams channels ensures that all members will have access to recordings even if they did not participate in the session.
Any enrolments after the meeting has been recorded will not be able to access the recording but a link to the recording can be shared (see Sharing below).

Teams Recording Complete
Once you have stopped recording your session in Teams the file is sent for processing and is uploaded to Microsoft Stream (this can take several minutes so don’t be alarmed if you aren’t notified right away).
Considering recording in Teams
Recordings in Teams will capture everything, organizer and attendee alike. If the instructor wants to record and not catch students video they will need to ask them to turn off their cameras.
