Add a link to a single lecture recording

This guide explains how to link from a Moodle course to a single recording already published to an Echo 360 course/section. If the recording was created with something other than Echo360 (e.g. Zoom) the teacher will first need to ensure that the recording is uploaded and published to a course within Echo360.

If you want your Moodle page to feature a single Lecture Recording Activity which contains all of your recordings for that year, see https://lse.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/LREG/pages/46071930

Please note you will not be able to set up the Moodle link until after your first recording has been published. If you do not see the Echo360 course for the section you wish to publish to, please contact eden.lecturerecording@lse.ac.uk as you will need to be added as an ‘Instructor’ if this is the case.

1.) Log in to Moodle with via Office365 (Using your @lse.ac.uk email address).

2.) Navigate to your course, and click Turn editing on.

3.) Scroll to the section in which you want the link to your recordings to appear.

4.) Click Add an activity or resource.

5.) In the “Activity chooser”, select Echo360 Lecture Recording and Add.

Choose ECHO360 Lecture Recording

 

6.) Give the activity a name, e.g. “Lecture Recording”

7.) Click Save and display. (See image below)

8.) Click “Open in new window”

9.) If you wish to publish lecture recordings on an individual basis, then populate the ‘Term’, ‘Course’ and ‘Section’ fields to reflect the course and academic year you wish to publish to. Once the fields are populated, select ‘A lesson (a specific lesson item in the section). This will then provide a drop down menu featuring all individual recordings added to that academic year’s course code.

Click the CONNECT button.

Fill out the necessary sections and click CONNNECT

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.

Students will be able to browse other videos for this course from within 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. Confirm that the “Currently linked section” matches the Moodle course that you are editing. If not or you wish to link to another course, please see https://lse.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/LREG/pages/46006390.

Further information

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.
