While you may use Echo360 to record your lectures, there are several other features that you can use to gather analytics, create more interactive classes, and engage your students more. Read further for information on Q&A sessions for your class, live interactive polling, and analytics on how students are engaging in with the Echo360 content.
If you are using Echo360 to record your lectures, there are built in analytics to see who is watching the videos as well as how engaged they are when watching the videos. If you add additional content in Echo360, such as your powerpoint or other materials or create a live polling option within Echo360, you can also see analytics for these features.
Echo360 offers the ability to conduct live polling in the classroom. You can ask multiple choice, true/false, short answer, image quizzes, ordered lists, and numerical formula questions. You create or upload a presentation into Echo360 and present from the tool. Students can then use their mobile devices or computers to answer the questions if they are logged in to Echo360. This is free for students and they do not need to download any additional software to use it.
Echo360 allows you to hold synchronous Q & A sessions as well as asynchronous. You can create questions for students to answer or the students can pose questions to you about course content. In a live classroom you can answer questions and monitor student questions.
There are numerous classrooms on campus where you can use Echo 360 to live stream your lecture. When there is bad weather or an outbreak of the flu, sometimes students can’t make it to the classroom. Live streaming your lecture can help them be sure that they don’t miss out.
You can now embed a single Echo360 video quickly! The “Video Library” option for users allows instructors to post individual videos in a course item instead of linking to all of the videos on Echo360.
