ECHO 360’s Student Engagement tools. In Fall 2017, we moved to Echo360’s cloud platform. Students can engage with content, peers and instructors using echo360’s ability to take notes, ask questions and place study or confusion markers as they watch the videos.
VoiceThread can be used to share and discuss documents, presentations, images, audio files and videos from within or outside of Blackboard. Interested in teaching a class that satisfies the SBC SPK requirement? ...talk to us about how you could use VoiceThread.
Google Drive is as great way to brainstorm with your students and share documents
Encourage self reflection and sharing of information/coursework by using Digication to create ePortfolios.
