How do I publish a recording?

"Publishing" means "putting the capture into a class so students and instructors can view it." Many scheduled captures are auto-published, which means they are automatically made available to the class when they have finished processing. However, if a capture is not set to auto-publish (because you would like to edit it or review it before students can see it), or if the capture is an Ad Hoc capture, it must be manually published to the appropriate class.

Captures can be published to multiple courses. To move a capture from a previous term to a new term, or to publish a capture to an additional course, follow the instructions below.

Log into Echo360

See Logging in and switching roles. If you accessed Echo360 directly from Canvas, you may have to switch to the Administrator role.

Click on the Captures tab

You will see a list of completed captures.

Find the capture you want to publish

Look at the "Publish Info / Title" column. If you see an arrow and a course number, the capture is published to that course.  

If you see two dashes, the capture is unpublished.

Click on the capture title

The Capture Details screen appears.

If your course is not in the list, make sure you have created it by adding Echo360 to your Canvas course site.

Create a new class

A class is a container that holds recordings. Select "New class" and fill in a name (typically the same as the name of your video). All other details are optional.

Click the "Share" button

You must create a new class (or select an existing one) in order to share a capture with a course. If the Share button is deactivated, make sure you have created or selected a class.
