Uploading Content to your Library

Any content you add to a class automatically appears in your Library. In fact, the My content section of your Library is the primary location for all of your content. It includes any media you have uploaded. If you are a primary instructor, it also includes captures for your classes.

You may want to upload content to your library to edit it or to hold it until you are ready to publish it to a class or share it with another user.

The file you upload must be one of the Supported Content Formats or it will not be uploaded or processed.

Troubleshooting: If you use a plug-in (such as ChemDraw) to generate equations, molecular drawings, or other items for your PowerPoint presentation, you may find these being stripped or otherwise altered when you upload the file. In this case, convert the PPT to PDF and upload the PDF.

Exported graphics to PDF format is not supported. Some graphics programs will allow you to export or save a graphics file (.png, .jpg, .gif, etc.) as a .pdf file. While Echo360 will recognize it as a PDF and allow you to upload it, the media processing will fail.

To upload content to your library

  1. Click LIBRARY from the main menu to navigate to your library page. My content appears by default.
  2. Click UPLOAD CONTENT, located in the top left corner of the library page.

  3. In the Filepicker.io window, use the location selection on the left to identify where the file you want to upload resides, then follow the prompts.
  4. If the file is saved locally, select My computer from the left, then click the Choose File button located at the bottom of the window.

Once the file is identified, the Filepicker.io window changes to provide an upload progress bar. When finished, the Filepicker.io window disappears.

The newly uploaded file appears in the Library page, but is dimmed while it is processed. Once processing is finished, the chevron menu changes to show the options for the content.
