Echo360 Tools Aim to Turn Panopto Video into Learning Assets

Echo360 has launched an upgrade program designed to help users transform Panopto video into learning assets for the Echo360active learning platform.

Echo360's platform is designed to encourage positive learning behaviors, including reviewing course content and video in advance, asking questions during class, flagging confusing material, taking notes and collaboration with peers and instructors.

"From our experience delivering enterprise-wide video platforms in more than 750 institutions worldwide, we have learned that creating and managing video just scratches the surface in terms of potential benefits to the teaching and learning processes," said Bradley Fordham, CTO of Echo360, in a news release. "With our new cloud-based Echo360 active learning platform, we are able to convert passive Panopto video assets into dynamic learning objects that encourage student engagement, produce behavioral data and provide unprecedented insight into student learning. Echo360 clients are using these capabilities today to achieve measurable improvements in critical performance metrics including retention, graduation and persistence. Better still, these improvements will continue to grow over time as this platform facilitates a virtuous cycle of continual improvement."
