Echo360 Active Learning Platform (ALP)

Introducing a new Lecture Capture experience coming in Spring Semester 2018

Now featuring polling, discussions and online presentations, as well as student activities, study guides and online notes.

Since 2009, ACCC has provided all faculty and instructors with an easy-to-use lecture capture tool called Echo360, now deployed in over 100 classrooms on campus. Beginning with the Spring 2018 semester, the entire campus will upgrade to Echo360’s new Active Learning Platform. This new software will feature integrated student polling, discussions, and study guides that will allow students to become actively engaged in the learning process before, during, and after class.

If you have already been using lecture capture in your classroom, you now have more ways to interact with your students. Consult the frequently asked questions below, or contact ACCC Learning Technology Solutions (LTS) at LTS@uic.edu to help you get up and running in your classroom.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find out more?

How will I get my lecture recorded with the new platform?

  • This process has not changed. You will either work with your unit’s Echo360 admin or continue using the Request Lecture Capture form, as you have before.

How will students access my captures in Blackboard?

  • In order for students to access the Echo360 ALP content for a course, you must add a Content link to the Echo360 ALP external tool, then connect your Echo360 ALP section to that link. The Echo360 ALP tool must be added through the Assessments menu on the Content page to enable student participation statistics to be sent to the Grade Center.
