Adding Campuses and Buildings
Rooms in Echo360 are, logically, located in buildings on
a campus. Campuses and buildings exist simply as a way to filter or locate
your rooms. They do not need to correspond to an actual physical location,
though they often do.
Rooms are used for scheduling and to track the location
of captures. Each room is associated with one capture device, so that
when the room is identified for a class schedule, so is the device.
The workflow goes like this:
- Create a campus.
- Create one or more
buildings for that campus.
- Create one
or more rooms for the building.
- Add a
device to the room.
There are two methods for adding rooms to Echo360:
- Bulk Import
- Use the Bulk Room Import feature
to add multiple rooms at once, as well as create campuses and buildings,
using a properly-formatted CSV file.
- Add rooms, buildings, and campuses individually through the interface.
These instructions are below.

where the campus resides.
