Echo 360 Opt-In Opportunity for 2nd 7 Weeks of Spring Semester


The Lindner College of Business is reaching out to inquire about your participation in the Echo 360 lecture capture service for your second seven week class.  This service is an opt-in only application and we will need you to respond to this email to confirm your participation.  This software will be used to replace the current Lecture Capture system also known as PodCast Producer. Echo 360 fully integrates with the online Blackboard (Bb) Learning Management System to improve student engagement before, during, and after class. The integrated real-time data and powerful analytics included in Echo 360 also allows real-time feedback that can be used to enhance student success.

Why use Echo 360?

·         Features student and class-specific learning analytics to give you better insight of how your lecture captures are being used.

·         Produces reliable, high quality lectures that can work on any device.

·         Like Podcast Producer, Echo 360 automatically schedules and uploads lecture recordings to the Bb Learning Management System for student review.

·         Provides high quality study and review materials to increase student learning outcomes.
