What do you like best?

There are many great things that are in echo 360. The way it allows to find files, volume, speed option and picture in picture options. If you want to listen at slow speed you can just reduce the speed of the video. If you want to go at high speed then you can just increase the speed to your desired speed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't easily allow the user to download videos. The forward and backward are somewhat not accurate. You need to click on screen then move arrows to go to desired time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Should buy this as this is good for students and professors Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To store online lectures and make it available to students anytime they want to view. Good for professors as you can't delete or edit them unless given permission. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the automatic nature of the platform in that it's tethered to the start and end time of a class. Nothing needed for turning on or off. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's very hard to edit the material carefully once the recording has been generated, without removing large portions of it-- in a fast / easy manner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For students who miss class due to job interviews this is a great way for them to not only hear the lecture but also see the content, all in real time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Well-thought out SaaS platform for higher ed. Designed for higher ed. Use of sprints with updates, and very receptive to product features. Excellent support services. Very stable platform. Recording appliances are very stable. Administered at the institution level, but flexible with sub-admins for colleges, departments, or units. Good student app as well as integration with major LMSs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat expensive, but given how we were managing servers with the on-premise solution, the SaaS is definitely better. They expanded into audience response which was OK, but we use a different solution for Echo360 for that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Streamlining lecture capture for whole Veterinary curriculum was important and this checked all the boxes. Besides recording all of the courses, we use it to record training, faculty seminars used for interviews, special meetings that require live streaming for overflow attendees or attendees not at our institution. Solved some accommodation students that need extended access to courses, or need to attend remotely because of health issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It allows for professors to record lectures for students to watch later Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't cancel out background noise, so you can hear students rustling around Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can prerecord lectures for students to watch later. I can also password protect the lectures so only my students have access Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I’ve been a user of Echo360 since 2011, using the ESS version before moving across to the SaaS solution. The hardware & software is expensive compared to other lecture capture systems, such as Kaltura & Panopto, but it is robust and continually being developed. Echo360 are moving across to providing an LMS set up for students to interact with & to submit video assignments via VLEs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The old ESS was allowed to get v buggy before the SaaS solution was released & the software’s accessibility features are unnecessarily expensive, so automated captions which are 80% accurate would cost my institution £30k alone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Figure out whether Echo360 pods do what you need, rather than PRO appliances or classroom capture. Much cheaper solution, although not as robust. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working with Echo360 is 70% of my job. Problems we are trying to solve by using Echo360 are: student engagement, student retention & comprehension of lecture content. It also serves as a great carrot to draw students, as lecture capture is being requested more and more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy to access online content. Being able to adjust the playback speed is great as not all presenters are deliver content at the same speeds, and it can enhance productivity. Allowing dual screens enhances the ability to see the presented material as well as one screen can be focused on the presenter and another on the slides. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The quality of the online content can depend on the IT setup that is installed and managed, but the software platform itself is fantastic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Would highly recommend ECHO360 as a online learning tool for integrated learning if your organization has a good IT department to record lectures and manage online content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accessing online multimedia content. Very useful for when audience members are unable to attend. Learners are also able to review lectures online repeatedly to help them process the information at their own pace. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Echo automates the recording and delivery process. The dashboards are easy to use and their LTIs work well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The first problem is that lecture recording does not have a way to alert the speaker if their microphone is not being picked up. Without audio the recording is useless. Once a decent recording is loaded there are very minimal editing options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Echo360 allows us to increase class size and still provide lectures to off-campus students. It also makes lecture recording and LMS delivery more feasible for faculty of all technical abilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The baseline product is a little expensive. The UI could be a little more mobile friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If you need classroom capture, Echo360 is the best product we've found. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
