Viewing and Managing ReVU Recordings

ReVU allows you to view and manage recordings in the EchoCentre, including viewing recordings, making basic edits to your recording details, and viewing statistics on who has viewed the recordings. You can use the EchoCentre to view, interact and edit the details of individual recordings and the Course View to view all recordings as well as view statistics on student interactions with the material. This allows you to easily manage your ReVU recordings and better track which recordings students found helpful. It can also assist in evaluating if students are improving their understanding of the course based on viewing a range of resources. 

This guide will outline:

  • Viewing individual recordings, and your full list of recordings for a unit/course
  • Playback controls available in the ReVU EchoCentre – including controls for Controls for playing and interacting with individual recordings
  • Editing recording details under Course View
  • Viewing statistics on which students have viewed your recordings and how they have interacted with the recording
