Echo360 Getting Started

Echo360 Lecture Capture is used for recording asynchronous/synchronous lectures. All recordings are stored in the cloud. You can record classroom lectures and create personal recordings on your computer. Echo360 records your voice, screen action, and/or PowerPoint slides, yourself in an equipped appliance room or on your computer.

There is more to Echo360 than just recording class lectures such as embedded videos with the capabilities to add polling in a video/audio file where you can check for student understanding. Or you can use the Active Learning Platform another great way to assess student learning, view usage analytics, and the ability to push points to the grade book.
