On Monday I attended the first Echo360 (formerly Apreso) user conference at Coventry University. It was a very successful event, with about 40 people who are either using or thinking about using the Echo360 lecture capture system. We have just begun testing our system at NUI Galway and intend to begin a pilot evaluation project in the next few weeks.
For some insight into how the system works, take a look at this short video produced by the Multimedia Team at the Centre for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Mental Health at the University of Birmingham.
I haven't got round to writing up my notes of the event, but in the meantime I came across this blog entry from the London School of Economics, who have been using Apreso for 3 or so years and are currently evaluating a beta version of the much anticipated course caster.
