Class Captures - Instructors

To Request a Class be recorded with Echo360

Instructors should contact their Department of Information Technology: Echo360 Scheduling Contacts

  • Be sure to indicate in your request if you want the capture to be published in a specified Blackboard course. (This must be set up during the scheduling.)
  • We recommend using the EchoCenter publisher for the best student learning experience.
  • If you have a remote location for some of your students, Live Streaming is available if an Echo360 HD appliance is installed in your Lecture Room.

 

Prepare Your Class

Once the Echo360 system is scheduled for your class, make sure:

  • The podium computer is displaying your presentation and projecting it to the students.
  • Verify that the camera presets are how you prefer them. 

 

Accessing Your Class Capture

After your class, the capture will be processed and published by the Echo360 System:

  • If you requested that your capture is published to your Blackboard course, you would receive an email notice, and a link will appear in your Blackboard course (usually within an hour). It will be ready for your students to review, engage in discussions and add bookmarks to key parts of your lecture.
  • If you did not request that your capture is published to Blackboard, then you will receive an email with a link to the capture. You must distribute that link to your students via email, website, or other means.

 

If your department does not have any classrooms set up for Echo360 lecture capture, please have your department administration contact Media Support Services at 828-1098 to inquire about purchasing capture stations and/or installation of classroom capture software (CCAP).
