There are several methods for making a previous year's Echo360 recordings available as additional resources for your current students. The method you choose will depend on your specific requirements.
Before selecting a route, you may want to consider:
- Do you want to make a single recording available or an entire previous year of recordings?
- Do you need to track asynchronous 'attendance' via analytics for your current class?
- Where and how do you want students to access the material?
Moodle External tool
If you have created content in a previous year via Echo360 and wish to make it available to your current class this is the most straightforward option and allows a single video or the whole of the previous year's recordings to be made available via the Moodle External Tool activity.
- is self-service if you are the content owner
- makes it quick and easy to add single or full course content via Moodle
- allows new students to be added alongside previous students in Echo360 analytics
Using the External tool
- Navigate to the current module space.
- Turn editing on.
- Navigate to the section you would like to add the content to and click Add an activity or resource.
- Select External tool.
- Give the activity a name to indicate what you are linking to.
- Under Preconfigured tool select Echo ALP Prod.
- Click the Save and display button.
- Choose the Echo360 section (module) you want to share recordings from. If it has automatically selected the module you are currently in, click Link to a different section.
- You will now have the option to link to either all recordings for that module (Link to the Section Home) or an individual recording (Link to a Classroom).
- To link to all recordings, select the section and click Link to the Section Home.
- To link to a recording, select Link to a Classroom and select the recording.
- Click the Link Content button.
Guest Access to a previous Moodle space
Guest Access provides students with access to all prior teaching materials including Lecture Capture recordings.
- allows you to share all of a module's recordings from that year via the Lecture Capture (Echo360) block
- provides students with additional access to prior teaching content, but this can be restricted
- means that Moodle can offer some insight to students' access to materials
- may be more time consuming to set up depending on desired access limitations

Use a public link or embed from Echo360
