In some cases, instructors may want their students to be able to edit the transcriptions for class-published content. This allows the instructor to assign transcription editing to students in the course if desired. This capability is disabled by default.
If this feature is enabled for any given section, enrolled Students will see an Edit Transcript option in the media icon menu for the video in the class list. Enabling this feature applies to all video or audio media in the section, and applies to all students.
WARNING about cross-published content: Whenever an item is edited, transcripts or otherwise, the changes apply to ALL PUBLISHED VERSIONS of the content.
To enable student transcript editing for class published media
- Log into Echo360 as an Institution-level administrator.
- Click the Settings icon and select Institution Settings.
- If you are an Institution-level Administrator, select the Institution at the top of the list on the left, then select Features from the options in the right panel, as shown in the below figure.
- If you are a Delegated Administrator and/or you want to set Student Transcript Editor for an Organization or Department, select that Org/Dept from the list on the left, then select Section Features from the right panel, as shown in the below figure.
- If necessary, scroll down to the Content Creation and Management section of the page.
- Click the toggle to turn the Student Transcript Editor feature on or off. It is OFF by default. Review the warning message that appears.
- Check or uncheck the Allow override checkbox to determine whether this toggle setting can be changed at any of the lower levels.
NOTE: The Student Transcript Editor toggle does NOT have to be enabled at the institution level unless you want it to apply to all sections in the institution. As long as the Allow override checkbox is checked, the toggle can be configured independently at the lower levels as needed.
See Automatic Transcriptioning Service or ASR for additional details surrounding transcriptioning. See Using the Echo360 Transcript Editor for more information and documentation to provide students for editing transcripts.
