Temple University Expands Use of Academic Video University-wide with Echo360
Beginning with the Fall 2017 semester, up to 37,000 students at six of Temple University’s campuses will be able to view their recorded classroom lectures and presentations through Echo360. The expanded partnership between Echo360 and Temple will serve students in a variety of academic disciplines including education, public health, medicine, engineering, dentistry, pharmacy, and podiatry. It will also enable Temple University to meet a growing demand for its online, international, and continuing education programs.
System Reliability, Student Engagement Tools, Combined with Best Practices in Teaching and Learning
Temple selected Echo360 through a comprehensive competitive bidding process. Our cloud-based video solution was selected because of the reliability of our hardware and software, adaptability to various learning environments, and the innovative student engagement tools that encourage deeper and active student participation in the classroom and with the course content.
“As we expand our academic programs globally to meet the needs of today’s students, it is critical that we have best-in-class instructional technology that is reliable and intuitive for faculty and students, and rooted in best practices in teaching and learning,” said Susan Hyer, Assistant Vice President of Academic Computing at Temple University. “Echo360 provides the flexibility to capture learning in large or small lecture halls or classrooms and to view and access content from a variety of devices included PC / laptop, tablets, or mobile devices – delivering content wherever it is needed. We’re excited to implement the academic video solution at scale, and further enhance the learning experience for all of our students.”
Reaching More Students with Mobile Technology and Cloud-based Services
“The rise of mobile technology and cloud-based services expands our ability to reach more students in a more effective and meaningful way,” said Cindy Leavitt, Vice Present for Computer Sciences and Chief Information Officer at Temple University. “Infusing a high-quality video platform with research-based pedagogy and proven instructional practices allows us the opportunity to enhance the teaching and learning for our students, both now and in the future.”
An Opportunity to Drive Deeper Student Engagement
“Temple University’s decision to select Echo360 was a tremendous vote of confidence,” said Fred Singer, CEO and founder of Echo360. “Today’s colleges and universities use more video than ever before, yet many institutions aren’t fully realizing the opportunities video presents to drive deeper student engagement, reimagine classroom time, and surface meaningful data and insights. Temple University’s global, forward thinking vision will enable learners from around the world to access a dynamic learning experience, enabled by very reliable yet innovative technology.”
