About Echo360 & Otago Capture

Lecture or Event recordings are created using Echo360 software and specified devices in selected Theatres and seminar rooms. The recordings can be made available to students via Blackboard, MedMoodle or HSMoodle.

A storage area (known as a Section) for your recordings should first be created using Otago Capture Administration, from here you may also choose to schedule the recording of your lectures.

In addition to creating a Section in Otago Capture, you will need to ensure your lecture is timetabled in a “Capture Capable” Theatre or seminar room.
