Changes to personal courses in Engage (Echo360)


April 21st, 2020

There will be some changes to the way recordings are managed in Echo360

From Wednesday 29 April, ‘personal courses’ labelled with your email address (in the format ‘firstname.surname@nottingham.ac.uk’) will no longer be visible in your ‘Courses’ list on Echo360.

These ‘personal courses’ were created a few years ago when we ran our own system on campus but since the move to the Cloud in 2018, Echo360 provides each user with their own personal library called ‘My Content’ and we no longer need to use the old ‘personal courses’.

  • You will find that all your old recordings are available in your ‘My Content’ area so you will still be able to create direct links to share to modules and other users.
  • If you wish to use your library instead of recording direct to your module (allowing you to check and edit the recording before sharing), you no longer need to change the ‘Publish To’ dropdown on your Capture Details when starting a recording as ‘Library’ is already selected by default.

All guidance training materials can be found on the Introduction to Engage for Staff Moodle page. For any queries about this change, please email engage@nottingham.ac.uk or contact the IT Service Desk.
