This article applies to Institution-Level Administrators only
Where the term" administrator" is used below, it refers to institution-level administrators only, except for accessing collections from the admin interface (shown below), which applies to all administrators.
Delegated Administrators (if delegated administration is turned on) only see those Collections they are members of. Furthermore, delegated administrators are NOT automatically given Manager permissions, and are treated (and limited) like any non-admin collection member. However, for Collections where delegated administrators can add media, they can add any media they have access to, and are not limited only to media they own (as non-admin users are).
The administrator interface in Echo360 has a COLLECTIONS tab, where institution-level admins can see all the collections for the Institution. Click the collection tile to enter a collection and review the media and members in it.
Administrators have manager control over all collections, regardless of membership, and can:
- Add members to a collection
- Remove members from a collection
- Edit member permissions in the collection
- Add/Remove media for a collection
- Share/Post media from a collection
- Make a copy of collection media
- Add a poll to video or audio media in the collection (to create interactive media)
- Edit media in the collection (presentations, videos, interactive media, or polls)
- Edit media details for media in the collection
- Edit transcripts for media in the collection
- Download collection media
- Create collections
- Edit collection details (title and/or description)
- Clone collections
- Delete collections
The instructions for the above tasks are the same for administrators as they are for any collection manager. Use the linked articles for instructions as needed. If an institution-level admin is added to a collection as a member, they are automatically given Manager rights, as they would have them anyway.
Beyond the above-listed tasks, administrators are the ONLY users who can remove or demote (change permissions for) collection Managers. Manager access cannot be revoked by another manager; they can only be revoked by an administrator (or by the user voluntarily leaving the collection).
The below figure shows an administrator's view of a collection's membership list. This administrator is NOT a member of this collection. The view is identical to the view that any collection manager sees, except for the options provided for Managers in the collection.
Also notice that only ONE of the managers in the collection has an Edit button; this is because the user without one is also an institution-level administrator. They can be removed, but they cannot have anything except Manager rights in the collection, so there is no "edit" of permissions possible.
Use the Trash Can icon to remove a member from the collection
Use the Pencil icon to edit the access level or custom permissions for any member.
NOTE: If the Student Library has been disabled, students can still participate fully in collections, to include creating collections and managing collections as an manager. However, they cannot add or upload media to the collection, as doing so requires access to their Library (anything a user uploads goes to their library; Echo360 accesses it from there). If a student is an manager, the add/upload permission is assumed, but the student has no method of adding media to the collection.
