DULLES, VA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Echo360, www.echo360.com, announced today that Trinity University selected the EchoSystem platform for campus-wide lecture capture as the preferred solution to record and publish academic content to share through its course management system, Moodle. Together, these systems provide Trinity students continuous access to learning resources that can help improve retention and performance in complex science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) courses.

"Supporting open source technologies like Moodle is important to Trinity University. Echo360 embraces the spirit of openness by providing an out-of-box integration with Moodle and open APIs so we can further develop a capture and publishing workflow suited to the needs of Trinity instructors and students," said Robert Chapman, Instructional Support Manager for Trinity University.

"Trinity University's installation is a great example of how commercial and open source technologies can be integrated to the benefit of the university," said Mark Jones, President of Echo360. "Echo360's open architecture and rich APIs makes it an ideal selection for large-scale deployments by allowing universities to seamlessly integrate lecture capture within their unique campus environment."

Trinity uses Echo360's leading software and hardware platform to automatically capture class lectures and publish them in multiple formats including podcasts and full rich media. Sixty-five percent of all captured lectures at Trinity University are watched through the Echo360 rich media player, in part due to the complex nature of the STEM course content. Because the Echo360 player leverages Flash, every Trinity student can review lectures in ways that are more advantageous to their learning style on virtually any computer.

Chapman added: "One of the hallmarks of Trinity University's academic experience is offering students a variety of resources which help them acquire information and engage them in the learning process. Lecture capture gives students long-term exposure to content and helps them re-engage with that content outside of the initial classroom experience."
