These Release Notes contain a summary of changes made for the June 16-17, 2020 release of Echo360. For changes made in previous deployments, see the other Release Notes articles located in this Topic group, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student editing of Transcripts for Library media
Echo360 Administrators can now allow Students to edit transcripts of media in their Library. This applies both to media they own (have created or uploaded) as well as any media that another user has shared with them. This allows instructors to share media with a few students to have them edit the transcripts for accuracy. It also allows Students the ability to generate a transcript for media outside of Echo360 using a transcription program, then upload that transcript for their media in Echo360.
Universal Capture now allows for publishing ad hoc captures to an existing class – Universal Capture has been enhanced to allow users to publish ad hoc captures to a pre-existing class (that does not already have video/audio media in it). This allows Instructors to prepare for classes by publishing presentations and/or polling activities into a class, then adding the ad hoc video to that class. In particular, this workflow allows for Live ad hoc streams to appear in the pre-configured class, complete with the pre-loaded presentation and/or polling activities.
See Recording with Universal Capture for more information.

- Multiple issues were resolved via hotfix, including:
- An issue where uploads from the Transcript Editor were not working in the Canada region.
- An issue where the Create button in the top navigation did not work from certain locations in the UI.
- An issue with UC where some users had captures that were failing to upload.
- Resolved an issue where if a user was logged in to their Echo360 institution but followed a public (anonymous) section link for a different institution, their active account was being added to the second institution.
- Resolved an issue where the transcript editor would not load properly if the media had a transcript file with no cues (e.g., the audio was only music or was missing so no spoken cues were applied).
