Add a Moodle link to lecture recordings (Echo 360 recordings)

This guide explains how to link from a Moodle course to a set of recordings already published to an Echo 360 course/section. If the recordings were created with something other than Echo 360 (e.g. Zoom) the teacher will first need to ensure that the recordings are uploaded and published to a course within Echo 360.

All lectures timetabled in Rooms with the lecture capture facility will automatically be recorded as timetabled lectures. On campus recordings are affiliated with the course code and will therefore be published to the corresponding Moodle page by default. Once your Recording is complete you will then receive an email from advising you that your first recording is ready, follow the guide below to set up the link in the Moodle course.

The linking process can be done by Moodle users, other than the teacher, who have editing rights on the course.

N.B. If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser, please make sure that it is Version 11 or above. You might also need to enable pop ups for Moodle. Instructions on this can be found with a simple google search for the browser you are using.

If you cannot see the recording listed and you uploaded your video or you recorded using Zoom, you probably first need to share the video to the corresponding course in Echo 360.

* Note: When you link to an individual recording from Moodle, students using this link will be able to browse other videos for this course on Echo360. If you have videos that you do not want them to see (yet), you will need to change their availability within Echo360 itself. You can do this by clicking on the button and choosing Availability settings from the menu.


You are finished. You can now navigate back to the main course page.


Further information

Please note that your students must use the link in your Moodle course to access the recordings. You will not be able to distribute these links to your students by email, or on a web page outside of Moodle. Using the method above ensures that your students are correctly enrolled in your Echo360 sections.
