Dell has partnerered with Echo360 to resell Echo360’s blended learning and lecture capture application to higher education institutions in the US and Canada.
The partnership will enable the institutions to access Echo360’s hardware and software suite with the Dell server, storage and networking infrastructure and services. This simplifies the rollout of a blended learning application across a higher education institution.
Echo360 is available now to higher education customers as ‘Dell Lecture Capture.’
Now the institutions can purchase, install and receive support for the Echo360 platform through Dell, the company said.
Echo360 offers a blended learning and lecture capture technology which helps students improve learning outcomes by mixing the face-to-face teaching with technology to deliver a blended online and offline education experience.
The application records classroom instruction allowing students to view it live or on demand as well as collaborate with their peers.
Lecture capture requires scalable compute, network and storage capacity for the optimal user experience and to archive lectures for future usage.
Echo360 CEO Fred Singer said, "We are pleased to partner with Dell to provide institutions with clear solutions for recruitment, retention, distance learning and flipped classroom so they are able to reach more students without added costs."
