Echo360

Echo360 is a versatile and reliable system that automatically captures lectures and converts classroom voice, video, and visual-aids into high-quality media files. These media files can be accessed online from devices such as tablets, phones, and computers. Instructors can also utilize Universal Capture (Personal), which allows them to record from their own computers.

Availability simply determines whether a Student can view media in the class where it’s published. Meaning you can publish media to a class, but not allow students to see it until a certain date, or not allow them to see it after a certain date.

When captures are published to a section, the publishing settings include Availability. This may be on the capture schedule, or in the dialog box provided for manually publishing media to a class. Availability allows the publisher to set a start and/or end date for making the capture available/unavailable for student viewing.

You can download content from Echo360 from the Class List page if you need or want a local copy of the media for offline viewing or file manipulation outside of Echo360.

Be advised that some institutions restrict downloads to only the audio stream of the file. In this case, you will only get the audio stream of the video, and presentations cannot be downloaded from the class list.
