Getting started with Echo360/LR+

All scheduled lectures delivered at Echo360/LR+ enabled venues are recorded automatically, unless the instructor has opted out of recordings.

The instructor generally posts links to these recordings in the corresponding Moodle course. 

Most large teaching spaces are Echo360/LR+ enabled. You can check if a venue has this facility at UNSW Lecture Recordings enabled venues

The Schedule of Echo360/LR+

This section introduces normal recording and other recording requests.

Lectures will be automatically scheduled and recorded if it is:

Lecture Recordings and Playback

Lecture recordings, availability and how to view recordings.

Introduction

Before using Echo360/LR+ service, you should know:

    1. When: In most cases, recordings will be available within a few hours of the lecture. This depends on the length of the lecture and the number of recordings in the queue to be processed.
    2. What: Not all instructors choose to share lecture recordings. They may choose to opt-out of lecture recording completely, share lecture recordings only with students who are sick or are off-campus, or only release lecture recordings prior to the exam period, for revision purposes. Keep in mind that an instructor can choose to remove view/download access to a recording at any time.
    3. How: Lecture recordings are shared through links within your Moodle course. The exact location of the link depends on the instructor. 
    4. Other: We strongly recommend leaving the podium area before having a private conversation with any individuals in order to protect your privacy.
