On the day

Teaching staff should advise students that the class will be recorded before the start of class.
Note: The device monitoring tool (delcom LED light) will not work with Ad hoc recording.

Note: If you have already made an ‘Echo Venue’ booking for this Trimester, a section has already been created and you do not need to create it again. You may however, create a ‘Resources’ section if you wish to create a space where the media is not immediately available to students.

Step 3: When the class has finished, turn the microphone off and return it to the charging dock

Step 4: Logout of the presentation workstation
