Echo 360 Active Learning System

Echo 360 is a Lecture Capture System.  The system enables faculty to record audio, course visuals, and optional video for students to review in digital format. This provides students with a powerful tool that can be used for review, or to supplement materials covered in class, or to provide instruction that is entirely web-based.  Students will have the ability to seek forward or back in a presentation to particular segments of the captured session.  The captures can be viewed via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari), and/or be downloaded to a computer or mobile device.

The Echo 360 system is currently in use by Mercer's School of Medicine and College of Pharmacy.


Epson BrightLink Interactive Projectors

These wall-mounted projectors reflect images directly on whiteboards without the need for screens. The projector and whiteboard are used together for basic projection and as an interactive learning tool. With touch- and pen-based interactivity, this technology allows for writing, drawing, and collaboration on the whiteboard using familiar, intuitive gestures. The easy-to-use Moderator software (pre-loaded on the classroom computer) allows lessons to be saved and shared. The whiteboard can continue to be used normally with traditional, dry-erase markers; however, note that writing performed with markers cannot be captured via the interactive software.
