> Are you interested in having your course recorded with Echo360 lecture capture technology?
If you are interested in recording your lectures, either from a WPI classroom or using your own computer, please fill out the request form here:  http://www.wpi.edu/+echorequest

Lecture capturing allows you to record camera video, graphics display (such as powerpoint) and your voice so that you can share it with your students. You can find out more information about lecture capturing here:  http://wp.wpi.edu/edmedia/2017/08/03/lecture-capturing-getting-started/

Another way of sharing videos with students is through WPI's online video platform, Ensemble.

Contact Sophie Jagannathan at sburke@wpi.edu for more information about Ensemble or lecture capturing with Echo360.
