If you wish to reuse LectureCast activity links from previous years in your new Moodle course, they need to be copied and shared with the new year section in LectureCast to ensure the analytics do not accrue to last year's stats.
The way recordings are reused depends on their ownership and the way in which they've been published. The table below illustrates different scenarios which may apply to your course.
Please use the relevant Method to re-share your recordings onto your new course. It is important to follow these instructions to share your recordings once the course has been rolled over.
|Way recording was previously shared||Owner||Method for re-sharing|
|Recordings made in Lecturecast equipped teaching spaces and automatically shared into the appropriate section.||Owned by the section and not available in any Staff Echo360 library.||Any staff member who is an instructor in the section in which the content sits will have the capability to create a copy of the recording in question, this copy will then be available to them in their Echo360 library from where it may be re-shared to next year's section. The process is outlined in the steps below the table.|
|From Echo360 library embedded in a Moodle course using the Echo360 plugin tool in Moodle's text editor||Member of staff who uploaded|
Generally no action needs to be taken to re-use recordings published in this way. These recordings will be available in the rolled-over course along with other course content as they are independent of Lecturecast sections. Note that analytics for these recordings will simply accrue to last year's stats as they are not re-set.
|Recordings shared from staff Echo360 libraries into a previous year's Lecturecast section that now need to be published into a new academic year's section.||Member of staff who uploaded||In these cases recordings which will still be available in staff's Echo360 libraries need to be re-shared into the new year's Lecturecast section. The method is the same as that used to originally share the content and identical to the steps from 4.1 below (note, there's no need to create a copy of the recording)|
|Recordings shared from staff Echo360 libraries into a previous year's Lecturecast section who's classes are then individually linked to different sections of a Moodle course.||Member of staff who uploaded||This is identical to the scenario above but requires the additional steps of recreating Lecturecast activity links to individual classes. A short video guide on linking to individual classes is available via the link Create a Link on a Moodle course to a Lecturecast Recording.|
PLEASE NOTE: Currently there is no method for the bulk duplication of recordings from one year's Lecturecast section to the next and each recording must be updated individually.
To reuse ALL recordings from a previous year's section, please contact us at email@example.com and we can clone that section for you.
Refer to Logging in to Lecturecast (Echo360) for instructions on how to do this.
You can also access Lecturecast ALP via your Moodle courses and then access your Library as described below.
Click on the Echo icon to navigate to the Echo360 Home page . If you are taken to your Library, click on the Courses icon.
Note that you will only have access to sections that you have previously accessed through a Lecturecast Activity link on a Moodle course.
Do not use the UNLINK LMS COURSE link (Top Left of all Lecturecast section screens) to unlink older Lecturecast sections from your course. This link does not prevent you from creating a link to the next academic year's section and deleting them will sever all links to the section in the current year section.
Use the Search box and filtering options to find the relevant course.
The copy you've created is now owned by you and will appear within your Library on the Echo360 page.
You can publish content from the Echo360 home page into any Lecturecast section/course for which you are an Instructor.
Locate the copy of the recording in your Lecturecast 'Library' (Use the Search facility if necessary)
Click on Share
See the areas below to see how to share to an Individual or publish your recording into a Moodle course.
