Echo360 Pushes ‘Lecture Capture’ Tech into Classrooms from Qatar to the U.S.

Colleges have long been taping lectures, but in the last half-decade, an industry has emerged to sell specialized technology that captures many elements of a lesson to help students learn outside the classroom. Some see it as a way to teach people who have different learning styles, by letting those who have trouble understanding or paying attention return to the material at their own pace. Echo360, the Dulles (Va.) company that equipped Qatar University's pharmacology classrooms, has about 500 college clients in 29 countries, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University and New York University.
