Find help with Echo360
The University uses Echo 360 to record lectures and related presentations.
Echo 360 Lecture Capture
Echo 360’s digital tools extend classroom instruction to students around-the-clock. Echo devices enable the capture of the content on a classroom’s podium computer, classroom microphone, and in some instances, a classroom’s ceiling camera. The resulting captures can be viewed in a variety of ways from audio only to streaming. Most commonly students download the capture as an MP4 video. Here is a short video explaining some of the features: https://vimeo.com/125804749
Echo 360 Mobile App on iOS and Android
We are currently working with Blackboard and Echo 360 to bring more features to the Echo 360 mobile app. As of this time the mobile app is not entirely compatible with Blackboard. We recommend accessing the recordings with a PC or Mac using Chrome or Firefox as your web browser.
Echo 360 in Blackboard
Completed Echoes will publish to your course in Blackboard in the order in which they are captured and processed. You can take notes while watching the recordings, add bookmarks, ask questions you might have, and mark content as confusing so the professor can follow up.
The link to Echo 360 in Blackboard uses a Pop-Up window to connect to the content. Because of this, currently Safari and Internet Explorer will not work correctly with Echo 360. Chrome and Firefox block this content by default. You will need to allow Pop-Ups or make an exception for Blackboard.
Here is a video showing how to allow pop-ups and download Echo 360 content:
Instructions for allowing pop-ups
- In the top-right corner of Chrome, click the Menu > Settings.
- At the bottom of the page, click Show advanced settings.
- In the “Privacy” section, click the Content settings button.
- In the “Pop-ups” section, click Manage exceptions.
- Add “https://atsuni.blackboard.com” to the list.
- In the top-right corner of Firefox, click the Menu > Options.
- Click on “Content”
- In the “Pop-ups” section, click the “Exceptions…” button.
- Type “https://atsuni.blackboard.com” in the text field and click on Allow to add it to the list and then Save Changes.
