Echo360 Learning Capture

Commonly referred to as Echo, Echo 360 is a versatile and reliable system that automatically captures lectures and converts classroom voice, video,and visual-aids into high quality media files. These media files can be accessed on-line from devices such as iPods, MP3 players, phones, and computers.  Instructors can also utilize Personal Capture, which allows them to record from their own computers.
