I was having more and more trouble as time went on with some features in echo360’s editing area. It sends an error complaining about flash not being new enough… but I knew I had the newest one installed… very frustrating. I know that Apple and Adobe don’t always get along – especially when it comes to Flash, so I just went with it for a bit. But hey – turns out that there is an actual solution, and it isn’t in the apple preferences, it’s in the browser preferences.
The other fun bit, is you can’t just pull down a normal settings menu and expect to find this… you have to type into the URL field: chrome://plugins to get to these preferences.
SBCapture is used for different purposes on campus and we have a few different mechanisms for turning on Echo360 for your course.
You want regularly scheduled recording throughout most if not all of the semester.
In this case, you will want to fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/a/stonybrook.edu/forms/d/16EifqVp3kAsiBHKoIaGX7OGtKE2v_oGfAz5o2maU0hY/viewform
One time recordings:
Maybe you have a guest speaker coming to your class that you want to capture, or you are holding a review outside of regular class hours – fill out this form:
You want to upload your own video or use the echo360 personal capture application to record videos for your course. Then fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/a/stonybrook.edu/forms/d/1QlkXe31SyGVHoDjfEULIQ89u2TMoX96cr5fOP4z_cBc/viewform
If you are dropping off video to be uploaded into the echocenter for your course (only materials that you have permission to use please): This is your form. https://docs.google.com/a/stonybrook.edu/forms/d/1ZwB-k40UeEFeJpwu-kLuBe4sZ3Bg_UK3G06EFEZXMMU/viewform
I don’t want to write about this one service too much, but we just had another snow day and some instructors have thought to do this, but I’m sure more could do this and it just hasn’t occurred to them. SBCapture has been on campus now since 2008. Some of you that use it, have captured lectures in the past. Even for the very same lectures you are giving now, or would have given if school hadn’t gotten cancelled.
Yes – you can republish your old lectures into your current class.
Find the lecture that you are interested in, select edit, scroll down to the bottom and select “edit media”, then the “Save New” tab. From here you can give it a new name and description, then pick the current term, course and section and “Save as New”. The old lecture will appear in your current echocenter.
Did you know?
SBCapture not only does room based capture, but also has “Personal Capture” which can record the screen, webcam and audio from any computer, and “Video Ingest” which can take any supplemental video and load into Blackboard?
