Enable/Disable the Student LIBRARY Page

The primary purpose of the LIBRARY page is to provide a centralized location for media that can be shared with other users or published to classes.

Since Students do not have the right to publish media to classes, some institutions want to disable the Library page for students to keep them from sharing copyrighted or other content that should not be shared with other users.

To disable the LIBRARY page for students

  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. Click the Settings icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.
  3. From the Settings menu, select Institution Settings.
    The Institution appears at the top of the list and is selected by default.
  4. On the right side of the Institution Settings page, click Features.
  5. Under Features, disable the Student library toggle switch (it is enabled by default).
  6. Click Yes on the confirmation message that appears.

Students will no longer see a LIBRARY page tab in the top of their Echo360 window. Furthermore they will not be able to upload and share content with other users, and they will not be able to see any media that has been shared with them via Echo360.

NOTE: Toggling this switch simply hides the LIBRARY page from student access; any media that may have been resident in the student's library is still there, and will appear if the toggle is enabled.
