Case Study: Providing exciting opportunities for video and active learning

The University of Adelaide is ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide, with an esteemed reputation for its pursuit and discovery of new knowledge.

Renowned for its progressive thinking and proud legacy of many firsts, the University was the first in Australia to admit women into academic courses, grant degrees in sciences and music, as well as contributing to many globally significant research breakthroughs over its 142-year history.

Today, the University of Adelaide remains at the forefront of new developments, working on disruptive technologies including drought resistant plants, computers that can see, IVF driven by artificial intelligence and nano space satellites.

This spirit of innovation continues to underpin the academic vision at Adelaide, and as part of its ten-year strategy, the University has embarked on an ambitious project to embrace active learning in all its faculties.

To support this important transition, the University implemented Echo360’s latest technology.
