Recording -Any broadcast class you do will be added to your library automatically as a recording. The recording can be attached to the broadcast class. This will in the future enable students who registered for the class to watch it again

Bonus feature -Teachers can use the Kuula camera app to create high quality on demand content. Now there is no need to schedule a class to use the Kuula camera, simply scan the QR code on your channel and then you can record content that is then saved directly to your library. (This is true for any camera app that works with Kuula broadcast)
