Gecko Download Manager (geckoDM) for Echo360

Making Echo360 great again

https://geckodm.github.io

This project started because 4 Monash kids were sick of downloading lectures individually and wanted to code instead of study during SWOTVAC 😆 we all failed 😧

Introduction

This Chrome Extension allows students to download all their lectures (that they probably won't watch anyway) from Echo360 online services with the click of a single button.

Supported Institutions

To see supported institutions visit https://github.com/GeckoDM/GeckoDownloadManager/wiki/Supported-Institutions

Supporting:


Usage

1. Go to the Echo download link provided by your institution.

2. Load the Echo page (via the link), click on the Gecko extension.

  • Click on load Lectures.
  • Select Lectures to download.
  • Click on download.

3. Downloading lectures.

4. On Disk.

TODO

  • Figure out how to download stuff
  • Handle download limits i.e. Can only download 6 files at a time. I think Chrome handles this.
  • GUI
  • Specify download path (filesystem can only be used on Chrome apps, can have option to insert path via GUI?)
  • Name files downloaded
  • Support incognito?
  • Differentiate between recordings on the same day?
  • Migrate to MDL (Material Design Lite)
  • Fix download blocking (multiple downloads, slow internet)

Known Issues

  • Downloading many files in a short time span sometimes leads to Echo360 or Amazon S3 blocking downloads (sometimes it greys out lectures).
