Echo360’s EchoCenter is your one-stop dashboard for accessing recorded lectures related to your course. Like the student interface, the instructor view of the EchoCenter:

  • Lists each Echo for the class, with details about the recording
  • Shows any course notes (bookmarks) you’ve added to recordings you’ve already viewed.
  • Shows recent chat and discussion activity for the class.
  • Allows you to access  live webcasts. Not all classes include live webcasts.
  • Lists “other” recordings that may be in process or are unavailable.

 In addition to these general features, the instructor view of the EchoCenter can also:

  • Display viewing statistics for each recording
  • Display graphic summaries of the cumulative viewing statistics for all recordings in the course.

The following screen image shows how these features are laid out on the EchoCenter main screen:
