This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

By default, the current Term's sections are shown when you log into the Mobile App. If you have other terms' sections visible to you, you can select a different term's sections to view.

Tap on a section to view the classes for the section.

Section list for selected term as described

If the class has both dated and non-dated classes, they are listed separately in the class list for easier finding and sorting.

NOTE: Live streams cannot be viewed in the mobile app. In fact, unless the class also has a presentation in it, you won't even see the class listed. The completed video can be viewed later through the app however. You can view live streams through a supported mobile browser.

Classlist for selected section as described

Tap a class to view the class. If the class has both video and a slide deck, select which you want to view.

Selection to view video or slides in the classroom as described

You can switch between video and slides while in the classroom if necessary.  The below figure shows the slide view in the classroom with the Video icon button available to switch to the video. If you are viewing the video, this button changes to the Slide icon.

If there are multiple video feeds in the class, tap the Swap button located to the right of the playback bar at the bottom of the screen to switch between them. This is shown in the below figure.

Once a video is playing in the app, you can turn off your mobile device display and continue listening to the audio feed of the class video.

While viewing a class, tap the blue plus sign to create a new note, add a bookmark, or mark the scene or slide as confusing. For more details, see Adding or Removing or Viewing Bookmarks in the Mobile App and Adding or Removing Confusion Flags in the Mobile App.

If the scene or slide is already bookmarked or flagged, an icon appears in the top right corner of the classroom view for that 30 second segment. Tap the blue plus sign during a marked segment to remove the bookmark or confusion marker.

To view the notes or bookmarks you may have already taken in the class, tap the Notebook/Study Guide icon from the top of the screen as shown in the below figure.

The Notebook/Study Guide icon opens a list of all notes taken for the video in the class, as well as any bookmarks you may have added for video locations, as shown below.

Each classroom also has a menu (shown below) with options for the class itself. Use the classroom menu to open the Q&A page for the class. See Posting and Responding to Class Q&A or Discussion Posts for details on viewing, posting, and responding to class discussion threads.

If you are viewing the slides for a class, the classroom menu also provides a Refresh option. Use this in the event the instructor changed something about the slide deck while you were viewing it (hid/revealed slides, or added or removed slides from the presentation). This refreshes the slide view to reflect these changes. 

If you are viewing all slides for the class (slide overview), the classroom menu is how you would open the Notebook/Study Guide from this view. Otherwise use the Notebook/Study Guide icon available when viewing individual slides, identical to that seen when viewing a video.

Selecting a Term to view (other than current/default)

By default, the current Term's sections are shown when you log into the Mobile App. If you have other terms' sections visible to you, you can select a different term's sections to view.

The main menu for the app allows you to select a different term whose courses to view. The main menu is opened by clicking the menu button located in the top left corner of the app.
