Overview: The Content On Your Home Page
Last Updated: Aug 29, 2019 02:07PM EDT

This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

All of the content you have access to outside of a course classroom can be found on your Echo360 Home page, in the All Content tab. This article provides an overview of working with media outside of a course or classroom along with links to further information. If you are an instructor or teaching assistant, you may also want to read Managing Media in Classrooms for information on publishing media directly to a class, and for working with media already published there. 

Are you an existing Echo360 user with a new UI? The Content Home is the same as the old Library page; but we have added the All Content tab so you can see all YOUR media and all SHARED media in one place. For more on transitioning to the new interface, see From Old to New - Navigating the New Home Interface.

Don't have any Content tabs on the Home page? Administrators can disable the Student Content repository. If this is the case for your institution, you will only see a Courses tab on the Echo360 Home page. And you can stop reading this article.

Click the Echo360 logo in the top left corner to return to the Home page, then click All Content.

What you can do with this media depends a lot on whether or not you own the media, and whether or not you are an instructor, teaching assistant, or student.

Students may or may not have much content to work with. Instructors or teaching assistants probably have some, if not a lot, of content available to them.

How does it get there?

There are several ways content ends up in your Content pages.

Media you own appears in the My Content area of the Content Home. Media that has been shared with you appears in the Shared With Me area of the Content Home. Both types appear in the All Content area.

Why does ownership matter?

If you are the owner of a piece of media, there are a lot more things you can do with it than if it has simply been shared with you. In addition, Instructors and teaching assistants have more functionality for media (like publishing) than Students do.

What can media owners do?

Typically you can also delete media you own. Users can always delete media they uploaded or copies created of other media. Instructors may be able to delete classroom recordings if an administrator has allowed it (it's an institutional setting).
