Sharing and Publishing Media

Echo360 allows you to share individual recordings or entire sections. You can share this media via a public access link to many or with an individual via email.

Recordings that you are the owner of (both from a Section where you are the primary owner or media uploaded directly to your Library) can also be published to other sections you are an instructor in.

**Note: You cannot share or publish an item you are not the owner of. The options to Share or Publish will not appear as they do in the screenshots below. You will be able to see who the owner of the video is though and contact them.
