Echo360 FAQ

Who organises for my lectures to be recorded?

Phasellus vel dapibus purus. Duis id fringilla enim. Duis vel magna ut leo tristique pellentesque. Pellentesque ac pharetra enim, sed pulvinar turpis. Curabitur dictum maximus ligula ac efficitur. Quisque ornare dapibus erat id posuere. Proin mattis efficitur erat eu luctus. Maecenas vel tincidunt orci. Mauris quis justo libero.

Who starts the recording?

Your recording will start automatically, as long as you ensure that you are logged into the computer in the lecture theatre.

Who puts the link to my lecture recordings into my LEO unit?

Your lecture recordings are not added to your LEO unit automatically. The recordings will need to be added manually, usually be an Editing Lecturer. This process needs to be completed once per subject, per semester.

Where exactly do the lecture recordings appear?

Your lecture recordings are not actually stored in your LEO unit, they reside inside the Echo 360 platform, which you then link to. Where you place the link in your LEO unit is entirely up to you.

Is this “automatic”?

Once you have added the link to your lecture recordings to your LEO unit, all of your recordings will be automatically be added to the same 'classroom' space. Your students will access all of your lecture recordings for the semester from the same link.

What exactly is captured by Echo 360 ALP?

By default, whatever is displaying on the screen in the lecture theatre will be captured. This includes PowerPoint slides, web pages, video clips, and images. The Echo 360 Classroom Capture system also captures audio. Many rooms are also fitted with a webcam, should you want to have your face recorded as well although this is entirely at your discretion.

Which rooms are equipped with multiple microphones?

Phasellus vel dapibus purus. Duis id fringilla enim. Duis vel magna ut leo tristique pellentesque. Pellentesque ac pharetra enim, sed pulvinar turpis. Curabitur dictum maximus ligula ac efficitur. Quisque ornare dapibus erat id posuere. Proin mattis efficitur erat eu luctus. Maecenas vel tincidunt orci. Mauris quis justo libero.

Have signs been put up to advise all that they (their voices) may be included in the lecture capture recording?’’

Signs notifying students that they are being recorded have been placed in all lecture spaces across all campuses at ACU.

How can I access the archived lecture recordings made using the old Echo 360 platform?

Phasellus vel dapibus purus. Duis id fringilla enim. Duis vel magna ut leo tristique pellentesque. Pellentesque ac pharetra enim, sed pulvinar turpis. Curabitur dictum maximus ligula ac efficitur. Quisque ornare dapibus erat id posuere. Proin mattis efficitur erat eu luctus. Maecenas vel tincidunt orci. Mauris quis justo libero.

  • If you are fielding questions from your students, it is good practice to repeat the question when giving your response. This way you can ensure that the microphones will have picked up the audio. An answer without a question can be very confusing to students!
  • Don't use a whiteboard as a visual aid during your discussion. Instead type your responses into a Word doc (or similar) so that it is captured by the Ech0 360 platform.
  • Ensure that you arrive at the lecture space a few minutes early. This will ensure that you don't have 'black space' at the beginning of your recording.
  • Ensure that you start and finish your lecture on time. If your lecture runs over schedule then the end of your lecture will become the beginning of someone else's!
  • To minimise the amount of editing you will have to do, try to make use of the pause and resume button. You should pause the recording in situations where copyrighted material is being played, or you are discussing sensitive matters that you do not wish to have recorded.
