Accessing Echo360 recordings

Access to recordings is through Moodle. If Echo360 is unavailable in your location, you will be able to access lecture recordings in Panopto. Recordings will be copied to Panopto within 24 hours of the lecture time. See the Panopto tab for more details.

Find the link to the Echo360 recordings on your unit's Moodle page and click through to it. 

If there's no link or you're unsure, check with your faculty admin or lecturer to see if they intend to give access to recorded material through Moodle.

Note: The Lecture Capture Q&A feature is primarily used during live-streaming sessions. If you are viewing a pre-recorded session, you can still use the Q&A to ask questions, however your lecturer may not respond promptly to them. It is recommended that you post your questions to your Moodle unit forum instead.
