Whether the audience chooses to engage through clickers, a laptop, or even their mobile phone, Echo360 technology helps NBC Universal get feedback they can use while promoting partner activation.

Echo360's e3 Formula in Action

While designing events for partners from around the world, NBCU needed to add an interactive element to presentations that would help attendees stay engaged. NBCU selected PointSolutions as an elegant solution that was both user- and admin-friendly.


As with all other solutions within the Echosystem, one of PointSolutions’ missions is to increase equity in education — and that starts with inspiring communication. PointSolutions provides all event attendees, whether in-person or remote, with a simple, accessible way to participate in programming decisions and provide useful feedback to NBCU.


Echo360 technology provides ample opportunities for partner activation, whether that’s through a live poll during a presentation or a game of trivia. PointSolutions’ live polling offers an easy way for clients to share their thoughts and be present during presentations. And as attendees make their opinions known, speakers can use that info to guide their presentations.


NBCU currently uses Echo360 technology to get client feedback on improving partnership offerings and gaining insight into the programming decisions clients are most interested in. And it works: Event participants say meetings are 87% more engaging, 63% more motivational, and 73% more effective when Echo360 response technology is involved! Giving people a simple way to share their thoughts is key to helping NBCU develop stronger partnerships.

3 Key Takeaways

Personalize Your Presentations

Without a way to communicate effectively with the audience, many presenters choose to use a boilerplate presentation with no room for adjustment. Echo360 technology offers audience appeal with an easy way for participants to really participate. For example, you can find out what your audience already knows — and where they want to go. This lets you fine-tune your presentation to your audience’s present knowledge and future needs more effectively.

All Feedback Really is Good Feedback

While we all love to hear how well we did, it can be much harder to receive negative feedback. But as we know, constructive criticism is just as valuable as positive feedback. PointSolutions lets attendees share their opinions anonymously, encouraging them to be honest so you can make programming decisions you can trust.

Make it Entertaining

NBCUniversal knows that, even when content is about entertainment, presentations that are too information-heavy aren’t always entertaining. Add some audience appeal to your talk with Echo360 solutions that let you insert moments of levity through gamification. Gamification is one of the most effective ways to increase engagement — in fact, more than 80% of people find game-based learning more engaging.

How to Create a Corporate Training Video to Make eLearning Easier on EchoVideo

Videos are not a new development in the corporate training industry. In fact, training video has been used since employers realized they have a strong incentive to help employees learn. Videos combine visuals and audio, engaging multiple senses to promote learning. They save time and money because a business doesn’t need to hire an instructor every time they want to hold a training seminar. Videos give employees more control over the training process, inspiring them to put forth their best efforts. All of these reasons why video is so effective have been known for years. 


The bigger question isn’t what makes video so effective but why creating a corporate training video has stagnated. Once upon a time, instructors would record live lectures on a camcorder and play the resulting VHS tape for a group of employees. DVDs and cloud storage have replaced VHS tapes, but many companies are still creating training videos by recording content to play back later with minimal quality control or editing options. They aren’t thinking of the unique needs of their learners, shy away from innovation, and assume that it’s somebody else’s responsibility to make training worthwhile for their team.



Blended Learning Paths

Every student has unique educational needs and EchoEngage gives instructors the tools they need to personalize their learning experiences. Teachers can give self-paced assignments to an entire class or a smaller group of students who need a refresher. Students can complete these assignments whenever and wherever they wish, giving them more control over the educational process. Naturally, students will attend scheduled class meetings as well to recreate the traditional classroom experience. Any great K-12 learning management system should deliver comparable flexibility.


Audience Participation

K-12 teachers know that audience participation drives educational outcomes, and a great K12 learning management system needs to facilitate that. With EchoEngage, teachers can incorporate real-time polling into lessons and allow students to respond with their choice of devices. Gamification elements appeal to a student’s competitive side, and a built-in virtual classroom supports breakout rooms for collaborative work. Students can even ask for help anonymously if they don’t understand something. Teachers frequently report more engagement using these tools than they did in their physical classrooms.


Fair Assessments

While grades aren’t the end goal of education, a great K12 learning management system has to help students pursue success. To that end, EchoExam allows instructors to easily create assessments with 14 different types of questions including bi-modal items and dynamic content that allows teachers to adjust the difficulty as needed. Teachers can also scramble question orders automatically to protect the integrity of exams. Most importantly, EchoExam makes it easy for teachers to review scores for individuals and the class and intervene as necessary. In short, you’ll always have the evidence you need to help students succeed. 


Unparalleled Accessibility

Don’t you hate that feeling where you know the information you’re looking for is there somewhere but you can’t seem to find it? K-12 students encounter that problem every day, but EchoVideo offers an innovative solution. Using Automatic Speech Recognition technology, captions can be added to any video to promote accessibility. Better yet, captions are added to a searchable index so students can quickly find whatever they need to review. A great K-12 learning management system should empower students in ways that cannot happen in a traditional classroom. 


Efficient Course Creation

Classroom instructors are busy people and a great K-12 learning management system should streamline as much of their workload as possible. EchoAuthor allows teachers to create courses with an intuitive interface offering dozens of block types and interactive templates. Individual course elements can also be saved outside of the course, allowing instructors to quickly add them to other courses where they would be relevant. Once courses are finished, they can be shared by embedding on an iFrame or downloading in xAPI or SCORM formats. That kind of flexibility is precisely what teachers need.
