Using Notes and Bookmarks in the Mobile App
Last Updated: Sep 07, 2018 11:09AM EDT

This article applies to:  Echo360 Students

The Mobile Apps support both taking Notes in a class as well as marking slides or video locations with Bookmarks. The Notes and Bookmarks you add through the mobile app appear in your Study Guide, just like they do in the browser version of Echo360.

Note that the Windows App does not yet contain Notes/Study Guide functionality. 

To add a bookmark or a note while in the classroom, tap the blue plus sign.

Creating a Note

When creating a note, you will notice some pre-configured text selections as well as a Custom Note option.

Create note options with pre-configured text and custom note options as described

Selecting one of the pre-configured notes simply makes a note, with the video or slide location stamp, that says either Review Later or On Test.

Selecting Custom Text expands the box to include a small text entry area and pulls up the device keyboard. Replace the existing placeholder text and enter your own.

The Notes you enter, just like Bookmarks, appear in your study guide for the section, both in the Mobile App and in the browser-based interface of Echo360. The section and class notes are kept in sync.

Viewing Notes in the Classroom

If you have taken notes or added bookmarks in the classroom, tap the Notebook icon located at the top of the screen.

Bookmarking a Slide or Video Location

Bookmarking simply marks a location in the video or a slide in a presentation in your Study Guide so you can return to that location later as needed.

Tap the blue plus sign then tap Bookmark

Once a mark is added, an icon appears in the top right corner of the classroom view for that 30 second segment.

Removing a bookmark

If there already is a bookmark, while the bookmarked scene is showing (as indicated by the bookmark icon in the top right of the viewer), tap the blue plus sign to remove the bookmark from the scene or slide.

Viewing the Study Guide - all Bookmarks and Notes

Selecting the Notebook icon while in the classroom will show you all of the bookmarks and notes you have taken in that class for the media type you are viewing at that time.

To see ALL of the notes taken for both types of media in the class, use the Study Guide icon located at the top of the Class list, as shown in the below figure.
