UIC provides all faculty and instructors with a free and easy-to-use lecture capture tool called Echo360. Along with features provided by the tool, UIC faculty have access to support, learning workshops, and personal consultations.
Echo360 provides faculty with two distinct lecture capture options that facilitate blended learning:
1. Classroom Capture
2. Personal Capture
Echo360 Classroom Capture is a service provided by UIC to help faculty record their lectures in a classroom setting. It allows instructors to easily record lectures taught in specific classrooms and make them available to their students electronically via web, podcast, or vodcast.
The system will capture all audio and video sources in the classroom’s multimedia system, including the installed PC, an instructor’s laptop, the built-in and wireless microphones, and more.
Echo360 Personal Capture allows you to record captures using a stand-alone application that runs on Windows and Mac computers. Personal Capture allows instructors to record a webcam video or simply record audio and their computer screen simultaneously, which allows adding sound to PowerPoint presentations and other course material. Personal Capture allows you to create learning moments that students can review both before and after class.
For detailed information or to receive support with Echo360, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
