Using a Safari Browser

Note: When using a Safari browser it does not allow for exceptions. It will block third party cookies with cross site tracking enabled, unless you specifically go the website. A workaround is users will need to go to echo360.net.au in a new tab/window first, then attempt to access recordings.

  1. Navigate to echo360.net.au

Warning: do not enter your email address in the email field.  

  1. Open up a new tab and navigate to your Learn.UQ course to access your lecture recording.
