Making Content Available or Unavailable to Students
Last Updated: Jan 24, 2019 10:46AM EST

This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

After you have published your content to a course, you can make an individual video or presentation available or unavailable immediately or on a specified date. This controls whether students can view the item but leaves the content in the class which leaves the analytics data intact (removing content from a class also removes the student view/analytic information).

Optionally, you can select Availability Settings and configure future start and/or end dates for availability of the content, if changing the immediate status is not appropriate.

How to set date-based availability for published media

  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.

    Notice that the media icons are different colors. A gray icon indicates that media is NOT currently available to students; a green icon indicates the media can be viewed by students. The media icons also contain a tooltip indicating current availability.
  4. Click a media icon to open the menu, then select Make available or Make unavailable depending on the current state of the media.

The availability status of the media changes immediately, although any students currently viewing the item in a classroom will not notice a difference until they exit the classroom and re-enter. Similarly, students currently viewing the class list will also not notice a difference until they refresh the class list page or exit the class list and return.
