Service Description

MediaVision Courseware (MVCW) creates an integrated online learning environment for select courses. Echo360 is the lecture capture system that is used to provide automated and semi-automated course recording, as well as the capability for ad hoc classroom recordings and, most recently, Personal Lecture Capture (course recordings created using an instructor's laptop or desktop computer).

Echo360 recordings are editable and distributed to students via Blackboard. Lecture recordings are supported through classroom Capture Appliances - dedicated, all-in-one devices that record audio, video, and VGA display sources. Classroom Capture is a Windows-only application suited for audio, video, and local screen capture from a dedicated podium or lectern PC inside the classroom.

Please note, faculty may also schedule live camera operators through MediaVision Courseware.
