Who can do this?
Any LMS/VLE user who has access to the Echo360 embed tool/button as described for each LMS below. If you do NOT have the option described here, you can still embed videos into your LMS content windows by pasting the Echo360-provided embed code into the HTML view of the content panel. See Embedding Videos into your LMS/VLE without an Embed Button for detailed instructions.
If your Echo360 administrator has added the capability to your LMS/VLE, you should see an Echo360 play button in the content window toolbars of your LMS. The button looks something like this (but smaller):
The button in a Canvas toolbar looks like this:
The button in a Moodle toolbar looks like this:
In Blackboard, you don't get an Echo360 play button; you get a plus sign, where you then select your Echo360 Video library option (in Learn)...
...or select LTI item or the Content Marketplace (in Ultra).
The first image below is for embedding into a content window in Ultra.
The second image below is for embedding media directly into the course content page.
In D2L/Brightspace you use the Insert Stuff button, then select the Echo360 video option.
In ALL cases, you receive an Echo360 dialog box, similar to the one shown below, that allows you to embed media from your Echo360 library, to upload media and embed it, or to create a new recording using Universal Capture Desktop.
If embedding media you already have, click on the one you want from the list, and the row expands to show options for size, autoplay/automute, Style options for the player, etc.
Click Insert and the media is put directly into the content window or page for easy playback through the LMS/VLE.
