How do I get access to Echo360 Personal Capture?
Setting up Echo360 Personal Capture is a two-step process:
- Activate the Echo360 tool in your Canvas course site. This will create a place to hold your recordings in Canvas where you and your students can access them.
- Download and install the Personal Capture software. The software will allow you to record your screen, webcam, and microphone and publish the recording to your Canvas course site.
If you do not use Canvas, or you are not creating recordings to be shared with a class, please see the next article: If I don't use Canvas, can I still use Echo360 Personal Capture?

If you want to share your recordings with multiple courses, repeat these steps for each of your Canvas course sites.
Click on Settings in your course site navigation menu.
Click on the Navigation tab.
Find "Echo360" in the list and click on the three dots.
Alternatively, click on the Echo360 item and drag it up to the Navigation section.
Click on "echo360" in the navigation menu.
This will create a section in Echo360 for your recordings. It will also give you an Instructor role in Echo360, which will allow you to download the Personal Capture software.

You will only have to download and install the software once, even if you plan to make recordings for multiple courses.
