Edit Echo360 content

Echo360 provides a basic video editing function, allowing owners of a video to make cuts and trims to video content directly through the web browser. You can use the editor to:

  • Trim the start and end of a scheduled recording
  • Cut confidential or copyrighted information from a recording
  • Use a section of a lecture to share as a separate video
  • Share a short section of a recording for your students to review

This process is the same whether the recording was made using Lecture Capture or Universal Capture (Personal).

Editing an Echo360 recording will not overwrite the original so you can revert to the original recording if needed.

It's important to note that any changes you apply to a video will also appear in ALL published (or shared) versions of the video. To create a copy of the video instead, use Save As after making the edit.

Recordings published to a module

Recordings made via the automated Lecture Capture service will be added to the relevant module section in Echo360 and published automatically to Moodle.

  1. Log in to Moodle and navigate to the module space where the recording has been published.
  2. Click on the Lecture Capture block.
  3. The module recordings will be displayed. Click on the Media Icon Menu button for the video you wish to edit and select Edit video.
  4. You are now ready to edit the video in Echo360. Follow Echo360s step-by-step guide to Editing Videos using the editor.

A PDF guide to editing videos can also be downloaded.

Recordings published to your Library

Universal Capture (Personal) allows you to publish your recordings to a personal folder called Library (which also shows all the other videos you have access to, or own, in Echo360).

  1. Access Echo360 as above.
  2. Click on the Library tab in the top left-hand corner of the page.
  3. Browse for the recording you want to edit. You can use the search or filter functions or reorder your recordings to find it more easily.
  4. To edit the recording either:
    • Hover over the video image and click on the horizontal ellipsis menu (three white horizontal dots on a blue background) and select Edit Media.
    • Click on the video and click Edit Media below the player window.
  5. You are now ready to edit the video in Echo360. Follow Echo360's step-by-step guide to Editing Videos using the editor.
