How do I enable or disable Echo360 course section features?

The Features tab of the Settings page for a section provides the ability for instructors to enable or disable certain features surrounding the content they post to classes.


Instructors can choose:


  • Whether users can post questions and responses (Q&A) for the section.
  • Whether users can download class content locally. Disabling the course downloads feature applies to ALL CLASS CONTENT across the section as a whole, and applies to ALL USERS (i.e., all students and instructors, including YOU).
  • Whether other instructors can edit the content published to classes. This option is only editable by the primary instructor for a section.
  • Whether or not to delay the availability of video for students until after closed captions are applied.
  • To clone the current section into a new term and/or course.
