Embed a Lecture Capture recording in your LMS page

If you have lectures or other teaching content that has been recorded using the Echo360 Lecture Capture system, you can embed this content on specific pages in your subject on the LMS, along with text and resources to provide context for your students.

Note that you can only embed content on an LMS page if that content is in the My Content area of your Lecture Capture content library.

If you wish to trim your Lecture Capture video before embedding it, see how to edit a video recorded by Lecture Capture.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Navigate to the LMS page where you want to add the recording.
  2. Click on the Edit button at the top right of the page.
  3. Click in the spot on the page where you want to add the recording.
  4. In the toolbar at the top of the content editor, click on the Apps icon. This is the last icon on the right, and it looks like an electrical plug.

Note: If you can’t see the Apps icon, it’s probably because your browser window is too small. To reveal the icon, either make your browser window larger, or click on the three vertical dots on the right side of the toolbar.
