MoodleMoots provide a space for edtech enthusiasts and Moodle users to collaborate on how to innovate with our open source LMS and improve the way we teach and train. That includes our Moot sponsors, who can speak to Moodle users about how to enhance their Moodle sites to support their teaching and training projects.
Echo360 is one of our Silver Sponsors at MoodleMoot Australia 2019. Developed by educators, Echo360 helps instructors capture and extend great moments in the classroom to improve student’s engagement. Providing 24/7 access to students, Echo360 generates data that helps instructors and institutions identify problems early and take action. Today we talk to Jocasta Williams, General Manager, about what to expect at the Moot.
Moodle HQ: Hi there, thank you for talking to us today. For those who might not know Echo360, could you tell us a little about your solution and what role it plays in on-line learning with Moodle?
Jocasta: Echo360 extends your Moodle environment into the classroom with video and active learning capabilities that bring visibility to student engagement, including:
- Lecture recording and review
- Online classroom presentations for students
- Embedded student response activities
- Student notes linked to class content and video
- Real-time discussions to support peer-to-peer learning
- Confusion indicator so students can alert their instructors when they are feeling lost
And because students use it to engage with instructors, peers, and course content, Echo360 can provide unique learning analytics that no other platform can. Instructors can see a customised engagement score for each student and drill down on individual learning activities.
Moodle HQ: What can delegates expect from visiting Echo360’s stand in the Moot?

Moodle HQ: And finally, how can delegates keep updated with Echo360’s latest news or contact you before the Moot?
