Echo360 Using Teams and OneDrive


IMPORTANT NOTE: If want your students rostered from Canvas to Teams, you must complete Canvas/Teams integration (syncs your Canvas course and creates a class team). 

If you host and record your class meetings in Microsoft Teams and are manually downloading them from OneDrive, then uploading them to Echo360, you no longer need to. Echo360 now integrates with Teams and OneDrive. This integration allows all recordings made in Teams SharePoint sites  or a folder on your OneDrive to automatically copy to Echo360. All you need to do is set up the OneDrive subscription.
