You can download a recording to watch it, to obtain a copy if it is needed, and if you want to re-use this content via a different platform e.g. DeakinAir’.

Echo Decommissioning

Please note that Echo System is a legacy class capture system and it will be fully decommissioned in early 2021 (Decommissioning date TBC).

This may affect you and/or your students if you are currently linking directly to any recordings or other videos hosted on Echo System.

To best prepare for the Decommission, we ask that you:

  • Download any required recordings from Echo System and upload it to DeakinAir or DeakinVideo.
  • Replace Echo System link in CloudDeakin unit site with the link to your recording in DeakinAir or DeakinVideo.
  • Replace any links on websites or 3rd party applications that are pointing to content in Echo System to point to the new system instead.
