Echo360 Classroom Capture

What is Echo360?

Echo360 allows the instructor to capture the entire classroom experience – including what the professor said, students asked and all visuals projected during the lecture. Students can review the course lecture anytime on a personal computer with an internet connection and web browser.

Why use Echo360?

Ech360 lectures are available to students after the class has ended.
  • Students can catch up by viewing a missed class presentation.
  • ESL students can review classroom presentations at their own pace and as often as necessary.
  • Students can revisit difficult concepts presented in class.
  • Students in Speech courses can improve their public speaking skills by watching their own presentation.

What are some of the legal issues while recording classroom lectures?

You need to get a signed release form from any student(s) or guest(s) who present in the classroom.

  • Use material you have copyright or explicit permission to use in class.
  • Inform students that they are being recorded in class.

Where can a pilot project participant find training material?

The step-by-step training document describes how to get started with using the Apreso classroom. Please review the Automated Classroom Capture Policy and Information Form as you plan to start recording your classroom presentations. To get familiar with the computer interface for viewing a classroom lecture go to the Echo360 Learning Center site.
