What is Echo360?
Echo360 is the law school's class capture system. Echo360 enables faculty to record and stream video, audio, and content from a desktop computer or laptop. This new system provides students with a powerful tool that can be used to review class lectures, including PowerPoint presentations and any other materials shown during the class. Echo360 classrooms (Room 120, Room 121, Room 225, and Room 332) create digital files that can be downloaded and played in several portable devices. In addition to class recording, Echo360 also allows faculty to record videos and/or tutorials from their office computer or laptop using the Personal Capture utility. Interested faculty should contact Carlos Sandoval to have the Personal Capture software installed on their computers.
Student organizations and law school departments can also use Echo360 to record their workshops and other events. Interested student organization leaders and law school staff should contact Carlos Sandoval for assistance.
How to use Echo360?
Echo360 has several documents and tutorials on their website that will provide basic information about how to use their system. In addition, faculty must have an account on the Echo360 server before they can upload videos. Students will have access only to the videos of the classes in which they are currently enrolled. Students will need to log-in to Blackboard to view and download their class videos.
