Augusta University Expands Partnership with Echo360

Augusta University has expanded its partnership with Echo360 to offer real time access to academic content and lectures across the university's nine colleges and schools. The expanded partnership is the result of a joint effort between the University's instructional technology and academic departments to select a video platform that will enable pedagogical flexibility, and maximize efficiency and reliability across multiple locations. Because Echo360's unique video platform incorporates tools to enable active learning, it also forms a central component of Augusta University's efforts to increase student engagement and retention. Using Echo360's academic video platform, faculty are able to capture learning from anywhere at anytime, using hardware and software devices; gauge student understanding with live polling features; and access data to help identify problems in real-time and intervene. Students are able to take time-synced notes within the lecture materials, ask questions anonymously and in a risk-free way, and have 24/7 access to course discussions, material, and content.
