Creating an Echo360 Recording Using Universal Capture vs. Browser Capture

In addition to scheduled lecture capture, Echo360 can also be used to create ad hoc and/or asynchronous captures. There are two methods used to create recordings using Echo360; through Universal Capture, Echo360's desktop application and Browser capture, using a web-based interface.

Browser Capture

In-browser capture is relatively new to Echo360 and does not require users to install any software.

With both methods, users will need to first specify a few things prior to creating a capture. 

  1. Designate a "Publish to" location. This drop-down menu should populate with the user's enrolled Canvas courses. The default will send the capture to your Echo360 library - found here: Echo360 Library
  2. Ensure that the desired sources selected: ie. Display, Camera and microphone. These are all accessible from their dedicated drop-down menus.

Once these settings are as established, the user is ready to press the record button and create their capture.
