About the Echo360 retirement

Echo360, Indiana University's lecture capture and personal capture solution, will be retired in 2017 and is currently read-only. Kaltura has been selected to replace Echo360 and is currently available to all IU students, faculty, and staff. Kaltura offers a robust and flexible environment for managing video recordings for a variety of purposes, and can be used for instruction via direct integration with Canvas.

Timeline

The transition from Echo360 to Kaltura will move through the following phases:

  • Preparation phase (February 1-May 10, 2017): During this period, Echo360 was fully supported and was available for lecture capture and personal capture.
  • Read-only phase (May 11-December 31, 2017): In Echo360's read-only phase, you can access and download previously created recordings and content, but will be unable to create new lecture capture or personal capture recordings.
  • Echo360 fully retired (January 1, 2018): Echo360 will no longer be available, and you will be unable to log in or retrieve your content.

Suggested actions

If you use Echo360, you should take steps to preserve any lecture capture or personal capture recordings you wish to keep. If you previously used Echo360's Personal Capture software, UITS encourages you to move to Kaltura's CaptureSpace application.

To migrate a recording from Echo360:

  1. In Canvas, navigate to the Echo360 tool, EchoCenter.
  2. From the content list on the left, select a recording.
  3. In the right pane, click the i icon.
  4. Next to "DOWNLOADS", click either Audio File or Video File to download.
    Note:
    The Video File option does contain audio. Audio File contains only audio, no video.
  5. To upload your recording to Kaltura, see Uploading media to Kaltura MediaSpace.
