More to Courses than Just Classes

This article applies to:  Echo360 Students

While viewing and participating in classes might be the primary interaction you have with Echo360, there's a lot more available to you in a course OUTSIDE of the classroom.

When you enter a course either from the Echo360 Home page or from a link in your LMS course, you typically land on the Class List page. But take a look to the right of the Classes tab on the top and you will see other tabs for interacting with the course and the materials contained in it. The tabs available differ slightly for Students and for Instructors.

The tabs for Students include (with links to more information on what can be found in each tab and how to use it):

  • Classes - the list of classes in the course containing media for students to view.
  • Q&A - a single point for accessing all the discussion posts entered both in the classes and General questions posted about the course.
    NOTE: The Q&A tab can be disabled by an administrator or by an instructor. If you do not see a Q&A tab, this may be the situation for this course; furthermore, Q&A can be temporarily disabled by an instructor, to reduce student chatter during classes. Any entries you may have made are still there, and once re-enabled, you will see them again.
  • Study Guide - a single point for accessing all notes taken in the classes in the course. Instructors do not have this; only students can take notes and review them in their study guide.
  • Search - allows for searching for items across the entire course, including classes, videos, presentations. notes entries, and Q&A/discussion posts.

The tabs for Instructors include (with links to more information on what can be found in each tab and how to use it):

  • Classes - the list of classes in the course containing media for students to view.
  • Q&A - a single point for accessing all the discussion posts entered both in the classes and General questions posted about the course.
    NOTE: The Q&A tab can be disabled by an administrator for the institution or organization, or it can be disabled by an instructor for a course. If you do not see a Q&A tab, this may be the situation; furthermore, Q&A can be temporarily disabled, to reduce student chatter during certain classes. Any entries made are still there, and once re-enabled, users will see them again.
  • Polling - where instructors go to see responses to Polling (Activity) slides posted to classes. THIS is where instructors can see which student gave what answer to each polling question. 
  • Analytics - where instructors go to see class participation information and student engagement data for the course. If you want to know how (or whether) students are interacting with the materials in the course, this is the place for you.
  • Settings - where instructors go to manage all aspects of the course, such as adding/removing students or enabling/disabling the features available to course participants.
  • Search - allows for searching for items across the entire course, including classes, videos, presentations, and Q&A/discussion posts.
