Universal Capture now provides the option to Live Stream a recording. Live streaming should only be used where absolutely necessary. There is little difference between a recorded lecture, that students watch at any time, and a live stream as there is no interactivity with the participants.
The University recommends using asynchronous (not live, anytime) activities so that students are fully able to engage with the learning materials at any time.
You can edit your recordings in the Echo360 portal. The Editing recordings guide details the editing process.
Recordings made in Universal Capture (Personal) can be published to your personal Library or to an existing section in Echo360. For example, you could publish your recording to a module section.
Recordings published in your personal Library are accessible only to you.
Recordings published to a module section in Echo360, can be accessed via the Lecture Capture (Echo360) block in the corresponding Moodle module space.
Students will access your recordings via the Lecture Capture (Echo360) block in their Moodle module spaces. When you are finished recording in Universal Capture (Personal) publish it to the corresponding module section in Echo360.
As of August 18th all recording published via Echo360, including those created via Lecture Capture or Universal Capture have transcriptions generated automatically. The transcript can then be manually applied as closed captions. For more information, please read our guide on Echo360 Automated Transcripts and Closed Captions.
For guidance on the regulatory requirements related to audio and video transcription and captions, please read the guidance on Accessible video and audio content.
