Sep 30 14
Echo360 announced the availability of the Active Learning Platform. It is the first cloud-based academic technology platform engineered to elevate student performance in the classroom and improve learning outcomes through enhanced learning analytics. The Active Learning Platform provides instructors and institutions with an unprecedented view of student activity both inside and outside the classroom using comprehensive dashboards. The platform is to combine advanced lecture capture, content management and student engagement technologies with robust learning analytics in a single technology solution. The Active Learning Platform helps instructors teach more effectively with real-time analytics on student engagement, comprehension and study habits. Instructors can use the data to identify at-risk students and help improve individual student performance. Institutions can use aggregated data to help increase retention and graduation rates. Students use the Active Learning Platform to confidently master course material with 24/7 access to content and personalized study guides. The Active Learning Platform integrates multiple proven education technology components in one cloud-based Software as a Service solution with guaranteed uptime and reliability: Advanced Lecture Capture: Institutions have a scalable, reliable and flexible way to create live and on-demand video events using lecture capture capabilities, including classroom capture software, personal capture software and the SafeCapture HD hardware capture appliance. It is seamless for instructors to capture everything that happens in the classroom, and sessions are automatically shared with students in an HTML5 online learning environment. Student Engagement: Instructors can integrate polls, quizzes and other activities into their presentations to make the traditional lecture more interactive. Instructors using these methods have seen student participation increase to as high as 89% to 99% of their class1. Students can also take notes, respond in real time and mark important or confusing content, using their laptops and mobile devices. Questions can be asked anonymously to avoid potentially embarrassing criticism from peers. Student activity is automatically compiled into a personalized study guide, contextually linked to recorded class sessions. Content Management: Instructors can easily manage presentations, videos and documents through an instructional content management system called the Learning Library. The library integrates educational content and creates learner analytics collected throughout the teaching and learning lifecycle. Easy to use archive capabilities and share/publish functions give instructors complete control over their teaching materials. Learning Analytics: The Active Learning Platform captures rich, real-time behavioral data on class attendance and participation as well as results from quizzes and polls, lecture capture usage, time spent studying and more. The solution delivers intuitive dashboards and reports to instructors so they can identify at-risk students and intervene to help students before exam time. Administrators can view aggregated academic performance data to develop effective strategies to improve student retention and graduation rates. The Echo360 Active Learning Platform is available now.
