Viewing Video Recorded Courses Using Echo 360

Some professors record their classes so you can watch them at your convenience from anywhere. Learn how to access your recorded classes and troubleshoot playback problems.

It may take up to 12 hours for a course to be available for viewing. Contact the UBIT Help Center for assistance if needed.


  • Because video files are so large, we recommend watching with a high-speed Internet connection (3 Mbps). On campus, ResNet and Public Computing Site connections work well. Off campus, FiOS or Time Warner are good.  Verizon DSL is not recommended.
  • If using Adobe Flash Player, make sure you are using the latest version.
  • If you want to download and view recordings the instructor has allowed to be downloaded, use a media player such as VLC Media Player.
  • Live Streaming is not available on mobile devices.


You can only view video recordings for courses in which you are enrolled.
Some instructors allow recorded videos to be downloaded by students.
You can speed up or slow down the rate of the recording.
Echo360 makes it easy for you to access Classroom and Event Recordings to Web-enabled mobile devices including Apple iOS and Android devices. 
The quality of your experience will be affected by the speed of your connection to the Internet, whether at home or on campus. There are some tips which may help.
