How do I share a recording?

Echo360 Personal Capture captures are automatically uploaded after recording ends. If you gave your capture a title and selected a course (see How do I make a recording?) it will also be published to that course site on Canvas. You and your students can access it by going to the Canvas course site and clicking on "echo360" in the course navigation menu.

All completed recordings are also stored in your Library (also called My Content). From here, you can share captures with a class or with an individual user.
