Faculty: Your CSU Echo360 Account

A CSU Echo360 account is automatically created for all CSU faculty and staff. (Students must access Echo360 through Canvas.)

Use your CSU Echo360 account to view your courses, sections, schedules and videos, upload videos and presentations to your library, add content to sections, edit videos, create links and embedded videos, make content available to students, and view analytics.

Browser

Firefox is the recommended browser for Echo360. Canvas also recommends Firefox. Avoid other browsers. Install Firefox

Login

Log in to your CSU Echo360 account using the Login > Faculty - Echo360 Account menu item above, with your CSU eID.

If you log in through echo360.org, make sure you enter your CSU FirstName.LastName@Colostate.edu email address. (Using any other address may create a duplicate account and cause access issues.)

Library

This is the main page for your videos and courses.

The Library tab on the top far left shows all videos that are recorded and uploaded to your account.

Courses
