What is it?

In addition to lecture recordings, Echo360 Active Learning Platform (ALP) provides a range of functionality to facilitate class engagement and participation. For example, the Active Learning Platform will also allow academics to:

  • Add questions and polls to lecture slides uploaded to the system, which students can respond to in real-time during a lecture using their own smart devices (laptop, tablet or mobile phone).
  • Respond to questions from students submitted to the system.
  • View learning analytics data on:
    • which slides students viewed, written notes on, or flagged as confusing.
    • which students have viewed lecture material or engaged with activities during the lecture.

What is happening?

Currently, student accounts have been set up in the system and testing is being undertaken. During Semester 1, resources will be produced to support staff implement Echo360 ALP and the tool piloted with a small number of courses.
