When media is generated (like a capture) or uploaded to the system, it gets a file name or other title identifier that may or may not be descriptive of the media. Especially in the case of classroom captures, the capture video may have the same title as the section to which it is published, with no differentiation from one captured lecture to another. For uploaded videos or presentations, the original file name may appear as the title of the content.
Echo360 allows you to edit the media details as needed, providing a more descriptive title, and making the content easier to find in your Echo Content home. You can also add a description and keyword tags.
NOTE: Generally, you can only edit the details for content you own. However, if co-instructor edits are enabled for your course, you may also be able to edit the details of an item published to the class list, even though you do not own it. See The Magic Class List for how to edit media you do not own.
