The Echo360 Classroom is a special setup in certain classrooms on campus that enable professors to record their classroom lectures and automatically upload them into Blackboard or iTunesU. The Echo360 Classroom setup captures 3 things in the classroom; It records the activity on the computer screen, a microphone records the professor's voice as they lecture, and a video camera records the front of the classroom where the professor is standing.
The image above shows an example of what the end product looks like. Students click a link inside their professor's Blackboard course and then Internet Explorer will load and they can watch the lecture recording. The only thing the student needs to have to watch the recorded lectures is Internet Explorer. And the only thing the professor needs to do is simply walk into the classroom and teach like they always do. No technical expertise is needed by the professor, and there is no technical setup that the professor needs to do before the recording starts. It starts and stops automatically.
The Echo360 Classroom setup is located in Brehm 258, Business Admin 36 , Business Admin 220, EPS 317, Gooch 207, Gooch 228 , Sociology 101, and the ITC Lab.
Sometimes it is hard to schedule a recording in one of the Echo360 classrooms because the classrooms are so busy, and some people don't want to schedule a recurring classroom recording but would rather make a one-time recording. Luckily, we have a solution for you. If you would like to create Echo360 recordings using your computer instead of using one of the classrooms, you can use Echo360 Personal Capture. We have a site license here at UTM so that anyone can use Echo360
