Echo360 Information

Echo360 creates an integrated learning environment on the web for select classes and enables students to watch video of previous lectures or review sessions. Users can access course recordings through their Canvas courses. Echo360 lets students create and contribute to discussions and notes in videos, bookmark sections they wish to return to later, and mark sections they find confusing. 

Echo360 allows instructors to seamlessly access and edit their course videos, view valuable metrics on how often a video has been watched, and learn where in the video students are spending the majority of their time.  Echo360 uses advanced multimedia learning tools to support learning success and enhance teaching. Instructors can upload presentations to correspond with their lectures and use interactive features such as polling to capture student feedback live in-class. Instructors can also add bookmarks on videos, answer student questions, and see what content students find confusing.

Universal Capture, a separate piece of recording software, is also available to give faculty the power to record videos anywhere, at any time, and distribute them to students through Canvas. Faculty will continue to have the option of recording large, lecture-oriented classes through a scheduled camera operator.

To request Echo360 for your class, to learn more about Universal Capture, or to discover the features of the system,  contact the Service Desk at or call 216.368.HELP (4357).
