Recordings or videos stored inside of BlueJeans will no longer be available after April 30, 2021.
In order to fully support you with this change, U-M ITS and LSA will be offering trainings, workshops and one-on-one assistance to guide you through alternative videoconferencing options to make this transition as smooth as possible. To get started today moving to the Zoom integration in Canvas, start with this checklist from ITS and refer to our visual guide for additional assistance.
Note: If you are currently using BlueJeans for research, please submit a ticket here to start a transition plan.
Zoom Training Webinars available and hosted by ITS, check this list for dates and information. Please stay tuned, as this list may be updated with additional training offerings. Additionally, there are self-help Zoom training videos previously recorded, which you may view at your convenience.

LSA Language Resource Center (LRC)
Please see the Videoconferencing Tool Comparison for a list of currently-available options provided at U-M. The following options are recommended for LSA faculty, staff and students:
Zoom: Get started with Zoom!
For public or larger events, access to Zoom Webinars can be requested.
If you are interested in hosting a Webinar, please request assistance using this webform.
Zoom integration in Canvas: The BlueJeans and Zoom integrations in Canvas are very similar, so switching to Zoom for this application should be relatively straightforward.
Please view our visual guide to get started on using Zoom inside of Canvas.
Google Meet: Get started with Google Meet!
Good for quick meetings with smaller groups of people who are using the Google Suite.
Easy to use, access is within the browser with no need to download an application.
Already integrated with Google Calendar.
All recordings (Meetings and Events) need to be downloaded from your BlueJeans account within 180 days of the recording or by April 30, 2021, whichever is earlier. After that date, you will no longer have access to them. For instructions, go to the How to Download and Share Recordings BlueJeans support page for Meetings and Events: View and Share Recordings for Events. You can then upload recordings to Google Drive, Dropbox, or another appropriate university storage location.
Please see the BlueJeans Retirement Project webpage for more information and updates.
You can continue using BlueJeans until April 30, 2021, but please be aware of the risks:
BlueJeans is no longer integrated with Canvas since January 12, 2021.
Any recorded material that you have stored on the BlueJeans servers will vanish on May 1, 2021.
This includes any recordings of any past meetings you have inside your account and any recorded content you have uploaded to your account for use inside of meetings.
There will be no way to retrieve these recordings after April 30, 2021.
Any future meetings set for after April 30, 2021 will disappear, along with their invitation lists and meeting IDs.
Your meeting history from the very beginning of your use of the BlueJeans service will vanish after April 30, 2021.
