Captures are typically generated as a function of scheduling classes for the section. However, there are some times when you may need to record some event or session, either as a standalone or as a repeated series of captures that are not specifically associated with a section.
that are not
associated with a section will ONLY appear in the selected Instructor's
LIBRARY (and on the Admin's CAPTURES page). Either the Admin or the Instructor
will have to publish the capture
to make it viewable by other users.
ALTERNATELY you can copy the public link for a completed capture and post it anywhere you like. This allows allow non-Echo360 users to view the media and may be an option if publishing does not provide sufficient access.
This topic deals with configuring standalone captures not associated with a course section. For adding one-time or scheduled captures for a section, see Scheduling Sections. For information on using a CSV import to configure scheduled captures (either for a section or outside of a section) see Scheduling Captures via CSV Import.
As with all captures, you must identify a room for the capture, which in turn identifies the device that will be doing the capturing. Captures can only be added for rooms where a capture device has been added.
It is IMPORTANT to note that adding captures outside of sections does not provide the Live Stream or the Auto Publish options. If you need to set up a live streaming class that is not associated with a particular course or section (available to a wider audience), set up a special events section and schedule a live capture for the section. Be sure to assign all appropriate users to the section. See Configuration Requirements for Live for additional information.
To add a capture
As you make changes, the calendar preview changes to
reflect the schedule information entered on the page. Today's date
is transparent and circled; dates on which the recurring captures
are scheduled are marked with colored circles.
Closed Captioning is only option: Since captures scheduled from the Captures page are not associated with a particular section, they cannot be Auto-Published or Live Streamed. The completed capture appears in the selected Instructor's library (if one is selected) and can be published to one or more sections by the instructor or an Administrator.
