Echo360

Echo360 is a powerful video platform that enables educators to:

  • Record audio and visual content from their lecture (Known as Learning Capture)
  • Live-stream audio and visual content from their lecture
  • Integrate slides and interactive questions into their lecture
  • Get students to ask questions or make comments in a chat
  • Record screen capture and webcam videos from their desktop/laptop
  • Obtain analytics from the recorded lectures

It is also integrated with Moodle and the timetabling application Syllabus+, which allows you to add an Echo360 link to your unit for students to easily access the recorded lectures.
