 Note: Echo360 is moving to a new version and location for the Fall 2016 semester. We will now use the Echo360 ALP (Active Learning Platform), hosted in the Amazon Cloud. If you have been using Echo360 Personal Capture (PCAP) to record and publish, you will need to download a new installer. Existing recordings on your computer will still be accessible within the new software.
