Prerequisites for using the Echo360 Student Homework Submission feature:
1) A Canvas Administrator must have configured an Echo360 app for video homework submissions for your Canvas instance.
2) The Student Library must be enabled OR you must be a member of a Collection where you have Post permissions.
If your Instructor has posted an Assignment in Canvas and requested you submit an Echo360 video as a response, use the below instructions to select and submit a video from your content library.
Submitting Echo360 media is as simple as selecting the Homework Submission tab, then selecting the media from Echo360 that you want to use.
Once you submit media for a Canvas assignment, it is locked and cannot be edited or deleted. This applies to Collection media that might be owned by someone else as well as media you own. You can create a copy of the video or download it. An Echo360 Admin can delete the video if necessary.
Helpful Tip: You MAY find the easiest way to add video content into Echo360 is through the Echo360 Mobile Apps. Specifically, the Mobile Apps allow you to Upload a video from your phone or tablet into your content library. If you are not already a Mobile Apps user, you may need to create an Echo360 password to use with them first (Settings icon > Account Settings > Create Password).
The below procedure submits media you have access to as a Canvas assignment. This can be Echo360 media you own or media that lives in a group where you have Post permissions. The Echo360 embed media dialog box also allows you to upload and submit a video as a single process through the same interface. You may even have the option to create a new recording using Universal Capture Personal, if this feature has been enabled for students.
