Professors: Users’ survey results

Please visit our new Lectures Online website.

As part of the Echo360 Lecture Capture trial, LAITS has worked with the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL, formerly DIIA) to conduct end of the semester surveys of the professors and students using the Echo360 system.  Through Spring 2012, 150 classes taught by 78 professors have used the Echo360 Lecture Capture system.

Below are the results from professor surveys.  In total, 94 professors have filled out the surveys.  Please note that due to rounding, some of the numbers do not add up to 100%.
