Echo 360 is an Automated Lecture Capture system that records lectures based on pre-set course schedules and allows instructors to manually trigger
captures with one click. The result is rich media and mobile outputs for
student viewing. Currently our echo capture system is configured in ABS 102 and ABS 101. To get started, please contact Randy Thomas, firstname.lastname@example.org
Echo360 also allows instructors with a webcam or microphone to record themselves and their desktop or laptop screen or just their voice. Through the Personal Capture software, the recording or screencast is automatically saved on the Echo360 server and a URL is generated which can be cut and pasted in Moodle or on a website. To get started, please contact Greg Crum.
