This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

If you're like many users, you may find the change to the new Echo360 Home page confusing at first. Where is my toolbar? How do I get to my stuff? How do I get BACK to the Home page? HELP!!

We know change can be difficult. And with a tool you use every day, changing how you get around can be jarring, so this article is here to give you a quick transition tutorial to finding all your courses and content. The top section provides a basic "here's how you find it" rundown, and the bottom section provides specific equivalents for Old vs. New Navigation.

Where Is My Top Menu? How Do I Get Around?

The Main Menu across the top of your Echo360 pages is probably the thing you miss immediately.

It wasn't called the "Main Menu" for nothing! It was the primary navigation for getting around the system.

NOW, however, all navigation begins and ends with the Echo360 Home page.

Click the Echo360 Logo in the TOP LEFT CORNER. You will land on the Echo Home page. Every time.

From there, click All Content to see the all the same presentations and videos that used to live on your LIBRARY page.

Or click Courses to get a list of all courses you are enrolled in, with the most recent term's courses shown first.

Old Vs. New Navigation

The images below show the OLD navigation method along with the NEW navigation method, in the hopes of clearing up any remaining confusion for you.

When you LOG IN, instead of seeing your DASHBOARD, with the courses in the active term listed, NOW you see your Courses page, with the newest term's courses at the top.

Click ON a Course tile to access the classes and other functionality within the course.

Instead of clicking LIBRARY from the main menu at the top, NOW you click on the Echo360 Logo, then click All Content from the left. We call this the Content Home.

The best part about the Content Home is that you CAN select to view only My Content or Shared With Me content, or you can simply work from the All Content page without having to go anywhere else. The old Library page had these items completely segregated, forcing you to view one OR the other.

To enter a Course, instead of using the COURSES drop-down list from the top menu, or selecting from the DASHBOARD, now you click the Echo360 Logo in the corner, and select Courses from the left. Then click on a Course Tile.

When you are done with the Course, click the Echo360 Logo in the top left corner to return to the Echo360 Home page. From there you can select Courses to view a different course, or select All Content to work with the content in your Content Home page.
