Ad-hoc Capture in Echo360 Classrooms

Greetings, WPI Lecture Capturers!

Have you ever been in a classroom and wanted to start and stop a lecture capture by yourself? Here are directions.

First, locate the desktop shortcut to Echo360 Class Capture. If that is not available, please contact the Technology for Teaching and Learning Group and we will provide you with the URL.

Using this URL, log in to Echo360 Universal Capture. The login button is on the upper right.
A quick note: this version of Echo360 Universal Classroom isn’t the same one used at home or in your office. It is a version for classrooms.
Once logged in, click Edit Capture Details (upper left).
Here, you can name your capture as well as add a description and tags.
If you want to stream live, it’s important to publish this video to your course. The live stream will emanate from the Canvas site of the course, from the Echo360 section of the site. Tick the box for LIVE STREAM if this is desired.
It’s also important to note the Capture Duration field. We recommend over-estimating. You can always stop early, but it’s an extra step to add time in 15 minute increments if you find your lecture going longer than you expected.
Once the capture details are entered, click save. This brings you back to the recording interface. Click the big red button to start the recording.
If you need to stop early, click the white square, as shown above.
As always, if you have any questions, please email
