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

Please note you will not be able to set up the Moodle link until after your first recording has been published

Log in to Moodle with via Office365 (Using your email address).

Navigate to your course, and click Turn editing on.

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

Click Add an activity or resource.

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

  1. Title the activity in the box next to the Activity name* field, e.g. “Lecture recording”(see image below).

  2. Click Save and display. (see image below)

4. Click Open in new window


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



5. To link to an individual recording*, select Link to a classroom, choose the appropriate recording and click LINK CONTENT.


* 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.
