Sharing Echo360 Videos as a Course-Relevant Collection

Filed in Miscellaneous by on March 9, 2020 0 Comments

How do Echo360 videos integrate with your Canvas course?

One easy way is through the Echo360 button on your left side course menu.

 

 

When you share a video to your course, they are accessible via this button, and appear as a list.

 

 

From here, students can download the videos they want. All they have to do is click the green button and choose “Download Original”.

 

 

To publish a video from your collection on the Echo360 portal, first click on the blue box on the lower right of the thumbnail of the video you want. Select Share.

 

 

In the Share Settings form, click on Class.

 

 

Use the course drop-down list at the top of the modal to select the course to which you want to share this media.

Use the term and section drop-down lists (which become active after selecting a course) to select the term and section where you want to share the media. (Note: if you haven’t informed atc-ttl@wpi.edu, your course may not be available. Please contact Sophie specifically to let her know that you need a course set up in the back end of Echo360.)

The next step is to select a New Class to “hold” this media. The word “Class”, in this case, means something like a folder.

To name the “class”, I just enter the video’s title.

While there are availability options you can choose, I usually tell people to just make it available now. That seems easiest.

When finished, scroll to the bottom of the Sharing modal and click Share.

  1. NOTE: If the Share button is not active, review the fields in the modal and be sure you have completed all the necessary items.
  2. Repeat the above steps to share to a different course.

The content now appears for the selected (or created) class on the Class List page for the course. If you created a new class to hold the content and the class has no date, your new class appears at the bottom of the class list by default. You can reorder the class list and change its location if necessary.

More information can be found on the Echo360 support site.

If you have any questions, feel free to email atc-ttl@wpi.edu.
