Adding/Publishing a Video to a Class
Last Updated: Jan 04, 2019 05:06PM EST

This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

A video can be the recorded capture of a past class, an instructional video in a flipped class, or any other video that you want to share with students.

Once added, you can make it available or unavailable, or set an availability schedule, allowing the item to be viewed beginning on a certain date and/or for a set period of time.

NOTE: Each class can contain ONE video. The effects of this are as follows:

  • You cannot add videos to classes that are generated by scheduling captures for the section. The video slot for those classes is reserved for the lecture capture.
  • You can replace an existing video with a new one, but all associated data, analytics, notes, etc., for the original video are removed. The content remains in your library.
  • If you need to provide multiple videos for a particular class, create a new class with the same date or title to contain the video. You can also group related classes to organize all of the content together.

To add a video to a class

  1. Click the Echo Logo in the top left corner to return to the Echo Home page (if necessary).
  2. Click Courses from the left panel (if necessary; the Courses tab should appear by default).
    Courses in the currently active term appear first, in alphabetical order.
  3. Click on the course tile. This opens the class list, as shown below.

    The icons (video Available Video icon or presentation Presentation available icon) on the right side of a class entry, regardless of color, indicate what content already exists for the class.
  4. If the class does not yet include a video, click the plus icon (Plus icon for adding content to a class as described).

  5. If the class contains no content yet, select Add video from the menu that appears.

  6. From the Add a video dialog box, select Upload a file or Import from your Library.

    • If you select Upload a file, the Filepicker window appears, allowing you to navigate to your content and select to upload it.
    • If you select Import from your library, a library content section list appears, allowing you to select the item to publish to the class.
      Select content from your library page

The selected video content now appears in the class. If you uploaded a video, it will need to finish processing before you or students can view it in the classroom. It may also need to have closed captions applied if video availability to students depends on captioning completion.

TIP: After adding the video, add tags to it so that you can easily find it later in your library. Click the video icon in the class content list, then select Edit description from the menu that appears. Change the title (which is typically the filename) and add tags in the Tags box.
