How do I create a link to a video?

Most of the time, a recorded lecture will be made available when it is published to an Echo360 course. (See How do I publish a recording?) However, occasionally Echo is used to record one-off events that are not associated to a course. These videos can be made available via a public link.

Public links can be set to be truly public (open to anyone) or restricted to users with Tufts credentials.  

Record the event and allow it to process.

Log into Echo360 and switch your role to "Administrator."

Click on "Captures."

Find the recording on the "Complete" tab.

Use the search bar and the filters in the sidebar to narrow your search.

The list of captures defaults to only show recordings made today. To find older recordings, click "Clear" next to the Date filter in the sidebar.

Click on the title of the recording.

A preview of the recording opens.

Click on the "Sharing" tab.

Selecting Private means that only users with active Echo360 accounts can view the video. If a user clicks a Private Access link, they will be asked to log in with their Tufts credentials.

Selecting Public means that any person with the link can view the video. This is the default.

The client can distribute the link via email or post it on Canvas.

It is recommended that you deselect “Active,” rather than deleting the link altogether. This allows for the link to be reactivated later if need be.
