    Do you use video in your courses? Would you like to create video content for your courses from your office or home? Do you want a way to measure your students engagement with the video content that you have created with viewer analytics? Do you want your students to have the ability to view your video content on any device?  Come and learn more about Echo 360!

    Xavier has purchased a video repository and creation tool called Echo 360. Faculty will have the ability to create their own videos with the personal capture software on both PC and MACs.  In the comfort of your own home or office, all you need is a computer, microphone, and a webcam.  Echo 360 is also fully integrated into Canvas; just edit and upload videos into any course with just a couple of clicks. Quickly evaluate which students have viewed video content, how much of the video they viewed and how many videos they have watched. Learn more about Echo 360, what it offers for both the students and faculty, and the workshops that are available by checking out the Echo 360 website.
