    Echo360 Lecture Capture :

    Echo360 Lecture Capture allows instructors to record class sessions. The recordings (echoes) are then available electronically on systems such as Blackboard. The lecture capture system at the College of Pharmacy records all audio and video sources that route through the classroom’s multimedia system. (Please remind students that the primary purpose of Echo360 recordings is to provide a backup for Distance Learning Education therefore they may not always be available. Students are responsible for their class attendance.)
