After downloading the app, the first thing you'll be asked to do is log in. Enter your Email address. If your institution uses single-sign-on for authentication, you will be prompted for your institution username/password. If you typically log directly into Echo360, you will be prompted for your Echo360 login (email address and password).

LMS Users must establish a direct Echo360 login: If you are an LMS user, you must establish a direct Echo360 login in order to use the app. The LMS passes you through as a user but Echo does not log your password (it leaves authentication to the LMS). To create an Echo360 password, navigate directly to the Echo360 browser page for your region, then click Forgot Password and enter your LMS login email address. Echo360 will send an email with a link.  The password you establish here will be used only as your Echo360 login, either through the app or through a browser. Your LMS access/password remains the same.

If you are enrolled in multiple institutions, you will be asked to select an institution to log into.

If you want to use the app with a different institution, you must log out then log back in again, selecting a different institution.

If you are assigned multiple roles in the institution you logged into, you can select which role you want to log in as.
