What’s coming in the eLearning environment (VU Collaborate)?


From semester 2 this year, VU will be using Echo360 Active Learning Platform. 


What does this mean for you? 

You will no longer need to schedule your lecture recordings each semester.  

All your video sharing, editing and publishing will happen in the Active Learning Platform.  

You can make your lectures more interactive with the Echo 360 student app. 


Is there training available? 

Active Learning Platform (ALP) training sessions are available face-to-face and online at most campuses.  

ALP overview and basics (45 mins) 

ALP for interactive lectures (45 mins) 

ALP for video buffs (45 mins) 

Come to one – or all three sessions in a row at your campus!
