Echo360 Lecture Capturing
What is Echo360?
Echo360 has the capability to capture, manage, and publish class lectures or content modules while integrating with existing teaching technologies. The Office of Information Technology Media Center maintains and administers Echo360.
Echo360 can capture the display output from a PC, document camera, and/or a laptop as normally displayed and viewed on a projection screen. This provides your students/audience with a powerful tool that can be used for review, to further supplement material covered in class, or to provide instruction that is entirely web-based. Students have the ability to jump ahead or jump back to particular segments of the captured session. The captures can be viewed via an internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari), and/or downloaded to a computer, iPod, iPhone, or other compatible mp3 player.
What is Echo Software Capture?
Echo Software Capture is an easy-to-use capture application built primarily for faculty and academic users. Echo Software Capture supports audio, local screen, and webcam video capture for all podcast and rich media package options. Faculty find it useful for capturing learning objects.
