Echo360 is an institutionally-supported online video platform, which has evolved into a new generation active learning environment, offering a range of possibilities to increase student engagement, inclusion, and participation. MacPherson is collaborating with a group of instructors, students, Campus Classroom Technologies, The Equity and Inclusion Office, and Echo360 support managers to learn how to increase student participation with the effective use of Echo360.
This initiative is called the Echo360 Sandpit. Its goals provide instructors with:
experience using Echo360 as a Student, while learning about the range of features that could help you increase student participation in your course/s
access to a safe space where you can practice as an Instructor using Echo360
an online community of Echo360 users/support
access to research and funding opportunities
