The system used for lecture capture is changing on Monday 20 November 2017.
An updated version of Echo360 is coming. It includes:
- An improved look
- New features, to benefit both teaching staff and students
- A new system working in the background
How did the trial go?
We thank the teaching staff of the six courses trialing the new Echo360 this semester. Their survey found their opinion of the system, and the support provided, to be overwhelmingly positive.
The student survey reported a high proportion finding it easy to use, and having an overall positive experience with it. This included accessing course recordings from a variety of locations, internet connections and devices.
How do I get started?
For teaching staff, starter familiarisation sessions are coming up in early November. They are on the Library calendar system, LibCal for booking.
There is concise guidance on Learn for using the new system.
A one-page summary of the changes is also there.
How can course recordings be transferred?
Course recordings will be stored differently. They have to be requested to be transferred, if needed. This would be if recordings are used each year, over and over.
Past course recordings will be on the old system for a limited time. Fill in a quick web form on Assyst to request a transfer.
