New York, NY (USA), April 2023 - Echo360, is a comprehensive, global, SaaS-based edtech platform for creating, delivering, and measuring learning engagement outcomes in any learning environment. The company has built on its DNA of edtech innovation by launching EchoPoll™, a revolutionary new learning engagement platform for education and business, and continuing to deliver significant enhancements to its EchoVideo™ and ExamView™ platforms.
With EchoPoll™, the company builds on over twenty years of pioneering audience-response systems for education and business by delivering a SaaS-based polling solution with unparalleled flexibility, connectivity, and dependability.
The company collaborated closely with educators around the world to ensure EchoPoll™ exceeds their needs to create greater engagement and outcomes from learners in any environment, including
- the flexibility for educators to use EchoPoll™ in "live" sessions with rostered and guest users, or to assign interactive work to individuals and teams outside the classroom or office
- the ability to transform existing Power Point presentations, files, or websites into interactive Echo360 Poll Decks™ or EchoPoll™ sessions with its Companion App
