You are the owner of any media that appears in the Library with your name on it. You can delete this media if it is no longer needed. You can also remove content that has been shared with you, but this simply removes it from your Library without deleting it for the owner.
Deleting media is permanent; you cannot recover either the media or the analytic data associated with it. Because of this, some Echo360 Administrators do NOT allow Instructors to delete any class captures (those created by a managed capture device), even though you are the "owner". If you do not see the Delete option for an item in your Library page, first check where it may be published and remove it from the class(es) if needed. If that does not provide a delete option, contact your Administrator to have these deleted.
WARNING! INSTRUCTORS CHECK PUBLISHING LOCATIONS FIRST!!
Before deleting media, click the tile and check the publishing information in the content details page first. (Does not apply if you are simply removing media that has been shared with you.)
If the content is published to a class, deleting it removes it from the class. This removes all student analytics associated with the item.
If you have shared the content with other users, deleting it also removes their access to it; it is removed from the Library of those users.
Consider removing the content from a class or making the content unavailable if either of those options is more appropriate than deleting.
To delete your media
- Click on the tile to open the media details page.
- Check the publishing information. If the item is published to one or more classes/sections, you may want to un-publish it first. As emphasized above, deleting an item deletes all analytic data associated with the content. Deleting is permanent and cannot be undone. By anyone.
- Click the Delete option located with the other media commands below the preview pane, as identified in the below figure.
- A warning message appears, indicating that all data associated with the content, including student notes and analytics, will also be deleted.
- Click OK to delete the content.
If the content had been published, it is removed from those classes. If the content had been shared with other individuals, it is removed from the Shared with me page of their Content Home. If you are removing Shared media, you will no longer have access to the item.
ALTERNATELY, you can delete media directly from the tile in the Library.
- Click the menu button on the media tile, select More Actions and then select Delete (if it is available) or select Remove (if it is shared media).
