Echo360 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, Universal Capture (course recordings created using an instructor's laptop or desktop computer).
