Brock University Launches New Initiative to Cost-effectively Expand High Quality Video Content Usage for Online, Blended and Face-to-face Learning

Colleges and universities around the world are grappling with ways to manage the ever-increasing volume of video on campus. Yet most video content management and storage solutions were not designed to support a university’s primary mission: teaching and learning. Institutions are searching for a solution that supports their academic priorities.

Following a competitive evaluation process including all major video management platforms, Brock University selected Echo360 to provide a secure and reliable repository for educational multimedia along with comprehensive yet straightforward tools for video recording and interactive learning. With Echo360, institutional leaders, faculty and students are able to easily create video, discover both pre-existing and newly created content, and share videos with individuals, groups, classes, and the public.

“Video is an important tool utilized by both instructors and students to create dynamic learning experiences that extend outside of the classroom experience. Integration of video into courses has historically been far too cumbersome, limiting the benefits, reach, and impact of our video content,” said Mike Brousseau, Manager Educational Technologies at Brock University. “Echo360 enables us to streamline the process by making it straight-forward to create, manage and share content while enabling student-centered learning with flipped and blended classrooms.”

Brock University and Echo360 worked together to build and execute a custom accelerated plan for deployment and training to meet the Spring 2019 term start date. This joint effort led to the successful migration of nearly 5,000 video files in just days over the winter break.

Brock University students, staff and faculty now have a secure and reliable repository for educational video along with comprehensive tools to create and share video and interactive learning experiences.
