Reuse Echo360 recordings

There are several methods for reusing Echo360 recordings across modules and between academic years. The method you choose will depend on your specific requirements.

In order to make any content available from a previous year, you must be either the content creator/owner or seek consent from the original creator.

Guest Access to a Moodle space

Guest Access provides students with access to teaching materials including Echo360 recordings.

  6. You can now share the URL with your students using Moodle's URL (weblink) resource.

Use a public link or embed from Echo360

We do not recommend embedding or using public links unless it is appropriate and absolutely necessary. This is to avoid your content being shared beyond your intended audience. If you create a public link or embed content, you do so at your own risk.

If you are the owner or creator of a recording, Echo360 allows you to link to or embed a single recording. Echo360 can generate multiple links and allows you to control how long the links are active.

This method:

  • Is self-service if you are the recording owner
  • Allows you to link to a single video or all of a module's recordings
  • Allows you to restrict access to Warwick users or make the recordings public
  • Allows you to restrict access to recordings to a specific period
  • Gives you the option to include new students with current students in Echo360 analytics

Creating links and embed codes in Echo360

  1. Navigate to the previous year's Moodle space.
  2. Click on the Lecture Capture (Echo 360) block on the right-hand side of the space.
  3. You can then share all of the module's recordings or a single recording.

To share the whole module's recordings

    1. Click Settings from the top of the page.
    2. Click Access Links on the left of the page, then click Add Link.
    3. Leave the role as student and change the permission to the desired setting.
    4. Copy the link and paste where required or follow the guide to add a URL (weblink) resource to a Moodle space.

To share a single recording

    2. Click Share on the left under the video content.
    3. Click the Link tab, then click Copy.
    4. Paste where needed or follow the guide to add a URL (weblink) resource to your current Moodle page, pasting in the link.
If none of the above methods are suitable or you are not the original owner of the content but have proof of their consent, contact AV: Lecture Capture support for assistance.
