Echo360 supports several online learning methods including synchronous or asynchronous remote video learning with active engagement and video embedded into the LMS/VLE for online courses. Students can view the posted media, respond to polling questions, and participate in discussions with other students and the instructor about the topic. Within the Echo360 classroom, students can also take notes and indicate confusion when reviewing videos or participating in live classes remotely.
With this type of engagement, research shows that students can often learn just as well remotely as they do in class. So we believe that Echo360 can be an integral component of your remote-learning contingency plans, due to COVID shutdowns, quarantine, or any other reason your students cannot be on campus.
The links on this page are designed to help you understand the possible ways to use Echo360 for remote learning, and see how other institutions and instructors have implemented aspects of Echo360 to their (and their students') advantage.

Video is one of the most effective modes of online learning and using your video content is one of the easiest ways to turn your face-to-face class into a fully online class. Learn how Kate Bradford from Indian River State College uses Echo360 video to foster deeper connections with online students.
Using and grouping discrete video objects is recommended practice for promoting engagement by remote students. Read how Dr. Claire Stuve at the University of Toledo uses short video learning objects to dramatically lower failure rates for online students.
