These Release Notes contain a summary of changes made for the June 29-30, 2021 release of Echo360. For changes made in previous deployments, see the other Release Notes articles located in this Topic group, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sharing interactive media directly to Students is no longer supported - Some Echo360 users were unaware that sharing interactive media directly with student users allows the student to bypass the poll gating feature of interactive media. To address this, Echo360 no longer allows for direct sharing of interactive media to student users. Students can still view interactive media where it is provided FOR them, such as embedded in an LMS, published to a course, or through Groups where they are members.
For more information, see Sharing and Unsharing Media with other Echo360 Users.
