Delivery options for releasing the lecture recordings:
- EchoCentre - built-in streaming interface available to all your enrolled students, and streams your recorded lectures on desktops, tablets and phones.
- Lecture Recordings folder - contains the 'Echo links' folder that can be adaptively released to some students, and/or released at a pre-defined time or you can make links to individual lecture recordings as below.
You can choose to have one or both options available to your students.
The Lecture Recording link is hidden from students by default until you make it available to them. Please do not change the name of the Lecture Recordings folder.
The EchoCentre is available once the lecture recording has been processed. You will receive an email when the lecture has been published (processed) to your LMS website.
