Embedding an Echo360 Video into a Media Slide
Last Updated: Dec 10, 2018 03:07PM EST

This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

A media slide can be created by simply specifying a URL To embed an Echo360 video onto a media slide, all you have to do is paste a Public Link URL for a video into the URL field. If you need additional information on generating Links for videos, see Getting a Video's Public or Embeddable Link

NOTE: The public link to the Echo video must be set to "Public" meaning it does not require authentication. Authenticated links will not play the video within the slide. However since users have to be authenticated to see the slide deck in the first place, you should not need to require authentication to view an embedded Echo video in a media slide.
ALSO note that video views through the media slides (like any embedded video) do not generate student view analytics for the video; only student views of the slide itself, which get counted as soon as the slide is shown in the classroom.

  1. From the main menu, select LIBRARY and locate the video you want to embed. 
  2. Click on the tile for the video in your library. This opens the Content Details page.
