Deleting Content from the Instructor's Library

You are effectively the "owner" of any content that appears in the My content page of your Library. You can delete this content if it is no longer needed.

Deleting My content media is permanent; you cannot recover either the media or the class data associated with it. Because of this, Echo360 does not allow Instructors to delete captures generated for classes, even though you are the "owner" of that content. Contact your Administrator to have these deleted.

Items appearing in the Shared with me page of your library are not associated with any other data; you are seen simply as the recipient of these items. As such, deleting this content deletes only the media. Any other sharing or publishing done by the owner of this content is not affected.

WARNING! CHECK PUBLISH INFO FIRST!!
Before deleting My content items, click to view the item details and check the publishing info first.

If the content is published to a class, deleting it removes it from the class. This removes all student access to the item as well as deletes all student notes or bookmarks, all class Q&A, and all student analytics associated with the item.

If the content has been shared with one or more individuals, deleting it removes the content from the Shared with me Library page of those users.

  1. Open your LIBRARY page.
  2. On the My content or Shared with me page, find the content you want to delete and hover over it to expose the menu arrow (chevron).

  5. Click OK to delete the content.
