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or unpublished.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 Unpublished content is only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.

a link for viewing the content to the desired person, such as a colleague
or research partner at another institution.
