The iLecture system will be unavailable for all Curtin users on Friday 8th February at 8pm to Saturday 9th February at 8am (12 hour outage). During this time the system will be undergoing maintenance, including the upgrade to the most recent version of the Echo360 software.
During this time you will still be able to access Blackboard and all your other learning resources, however links to all iLecture recordings will not work (including via the EchoCenter).
The upgrade offers a new look for the EchoCenter for staff and students, providing simpler access to recordings and related materials. Live webcasting is also available with this version. This will be piloted in 2013, along with other new learning technologies being introduced at Curtin. In addition to these features, there are a number of minor enhancements and bug fixes that mostly affect the system performance and experience for administrators. After the upgrade, all users of Echo360 Personal Capture will be offered an updated version of the software upon next launch.
The new iLecture system is now ready for your use, with full operation beginning on July 16. This post has been prepared to provide you with important information you may need to know about the new system.
