Publishing Content to a Course or Individual

Content in your library arrives there either published or unpublished. Published content has already been made available to a class within a course, or with an individual. Unpublished content is only visible to you, on your Library page.

When you publish to a class, you can make it available to the class immediately, or set availability at a schedule you choose.

Publishing to an individual requires the user be registered in Echo360. The content you publish to them will appear in their content Library as well as yours.

You can also share a link to a video in your library with an individual outside of Echo360. This method sends a link for viewing the content to the desired person, such as a colleague or research partner at another institution.
