Lecturers will need to give consent in LSEforYou in order to have their lectures recorded.  See our online guide for how to do this.  Once you given consent you will then receive an email from donotreply@echo360.org.uk advising you that your first recording is ready, follow the guide below to set up the link.  The linking process can be done by users, other than the lecturer, who have editing rights on the course.

N.B. If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser, please make sure that it is Version 11 or above. You might also need to enable pop ups for Moodle. Instructions on this can be found with a simple google search for the browser you are using.
