Recorded lectures can be shared with students through Canvas. There are three types of capture: Appliance, Classroom, and Personal. Appliance and Classroom Captures happen in the classroom and are best for recording classroom lectures and activities. Personal Capture takes place outside of the classroom in your office, at home, or any place you can take your computer. Personal Capture software can be downloaded from the Echo360 website once you have been given a username and password for the system.
H104, H106, H106C-E, H108, H110, H112, H112B, H280, H282, HHS ICU East, HHS ICU West, SE204, and C100 are the only rooms on campus with the lecture capture appliances in the podiums. However, Classroom Capture can be used in almost any room on campus with the addition of a microphone.
Echo360 is being funded by a few departments on campus. However, if you will need a webcam or document camera for recording with Personal Capture, your department will have to pay for those additional items.
If you're interested in using Echo360, contact the Support Center or sign-up for a workshop. We will talk to you about your training needs and decide on the appropriate plan for getting you comfortable with the software.
Yes, we offer workshops each semester. Visit the ITD Lab's workshop sign-up for more information.
