How to connect your Echo360 recordings to your LEO unit (Canberra pilot)

Echo360 ALP pilot - Canberra campus only

Making your Echo360 recordings to your LEO unit is a multiple stage process. First you will need to set up your recording schedule by completing the Lecture recording booking form. This will also ensure that you will be able to link the recordings to your LEO unit.

Secondly you will need to make the recordings available to your students. To do this you will need to add an external tool activity to your LEO unit. To do this you need to:

  1. Login to your LEO unit.screenshot of the activity picker in LEO, with 'external tool' highlighted
  2. Click on 'Turn editing on'
  3. Navigate to the section you want to add the Lecture recordings to, then click on 'Add an activity or resource'. Click on 'External tool' then click on 'Add'.
  4. In the new screen that opens, you are able to access the settings for your external tool. Give your activity a name, for example 'Lecture Recordings'. From the dropdown next to 'External tool type' select 'Echo360 ALP test- Canberra only'.
  5. From the dropdown next to 'Launch container' select 'New window', then click 'Save and return to unit'. a screenshot of the activity settings avaiulable under 'External activity
  6. When you have been returned to your LEO unit, click on 'Turn editing off', then navigate back to the Lecture recording link and click on it. You will be taken to the Echo360 ALP page (outside of LEO).
  7. Click on the dropdown menus to select your course, term, and section from the options provided.

    Note: You will only need to add your Echo360 recordings to your LEO unit once. By linking one class recording from your unit, all other recordings will be linked too. You must repeat this process for every unit you deliver.

Echo360 Classroom capture provides an easy way to distribute content to students in a reusable format that students can view in their own time, take notes, pause and re-watch.
