Echo360 is our video streaming and sharing platform. It helps us snure that storage resources in Sakai are managed efficiently and effectively within manageable limits. Video and PowerPoint files with narration can be very large file sizes and with echo360 we don't have to worry about our storage filling to capacity. This will be especially important in the fall term.

Echo360 can be accessed through Sakai by identifying this icon anywhere where there is a textbox in Sakai (Announcements, Assignments, Forums, Lessons (Add Content>Add Text)):

Do I have an echo360 account?

Instructors are strongly encouraged to access echo360 for the first time through Sakai. It is as simple as clicking on the echo360 icon and agreeing to the privacy statement. Your account will be automatically created for you through the Brock Authentication system. Then you will have access to echo360.com in an instructor role.

Students will have accounts created if they are a part of a course that uses echo360 or they can go directly to echo360.com and create an account with their Brock email.
