Some institutions may configure classes to be viewed in real-time, while they are happening. These are called LIVE classes.
Watching classes live is very similar to watching recorded classes except that you can't control the playback (fast forward, rewind, pause). Unless you've invented a time machine, in which case we'd love to hear more about it...
If viewing the Live stream on a mobile device: When Echo360 detects you are viewing a live stream from a mobile device, it automatically buffers 40 seconds of the stream to ensure smooth playback. This means you may experience a delay in the start of the stream, and that your view will lag anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute behind the real-time action. Also note that viewing Live streams is not supported on Android devices.
permissions to play Flash content: Chrome and Safari do not natively
allow websites to play Adobe Flash content. While you may receive a message
that your Flash Player is out of date, it is more likely that you need
to update your browser permissions to either always allow Flash to play,
or set an exception for the Echo360 URL to allow Flash. If you choose
to set an exception, be sure to list your region's URL specifically (echo360.org,
echo360.org.uk, echo360.org.au, or echo360.org.ca).

To access a live class:
The classroom toolbar appears across the top of the screen, allowing you navigate out of the classroom, open the Notes panel, or open/close the Questions panel.
