Echo Engagement Tools (formerly LectureTools)
Echo360 has purchased LectureTools and the student response system of the platform is known as Echo Engagement Tools. The new system offers you many of the same features you’ve grown to appreciate along with some product improvements, including enhanced grade book features and stronger analytics. The platform remains focused on asking questions to keep students engaged while providing more free time for discussion and group activities during class.
The UTC is offering sessions that will focus on how to create and use interactive activities and question slides in PowerPoint using Echo Engagement Tools to keep students involved during class.
