Editing Content Details

When media is generated (like a capture) or uploaded to the system, it gets a file name or other title identifier that may or may not be descriptive of the media. Especially in the case of classroom captures, the capture video may have the same title as the section to which it is published, with no differentiation from one captured lecture to another. For uploaded videos or presentations, the original file name may appear as the title of the content.

Echo360 allows you to edit the content details as needed, providing a more descriptive title, and making the content easier to find in your library. You can also add a description and keyword tags, to aid in searches for the media.

NOTE: Generally, you can only edit the details for content you own (it appears in your LIBRARY). If another user (instructor) published content to a class, the Edit details option is grayed out unless the primary instructor has enabled the co-instructor edits feature for the section.

To edit content details:

  1. Select Edit details from a content menu in one of two ways:
    • On the My content section of your LIBRARY page, hover your mouse over the content tile or row to expose the menu arrow (also called a "chevron"), then click the chevron.

      OR
    • On the Class List page, click the content icon to show a menu of options for that content.

  2. Click Edit description.
    The Edit media info dialog box appears.

  3. Replace the Title if necessary.
  4. Enter a Description of the content, such as a description of the lecture subject.
  5. Enter one or more keyword Tags (separated by commas). These tags are used in text searches for content.
  6. When finished, click SAVE.
