Interactive video learning management, content, engagement, and assessment platform, Echo360 has partnered with speech-to-text company Rev. The partnership enables Echo360 to leverage Rev’s captioning services to deliver an exclusive artificial intelligence (AI) integration to their clients across the world. With the use of Rev’s speech-to-text capabilities, instructors can quickly and accurately develop accessible learning environments. A consistent and quick turnaround for transcription, caption, and global language subtitle can be delivered through this collaboration.
Kathryn Stewart, Chief Product Officer at Echo360 said “Everything we design and do at Echo360 is grounded in our three core principles of Equity, Engagement, and Evidence, and Rev’s commitment to making transcription services and accessibility easier and more efficient for all is another tangible example of Equity in action. Their commitment to delivering innovative, inclusive products is a perfect fit with the EchoVideo platform and our Echo360 DNA, as we believe the future of captioning integrates a mix of human and automated intelligence.”
Thousands of Echo360 higher education clients and more than 6 million users will be able to utilize Rev’s services due to the impending back-to-school season and ongoing requests to give a variety of learning opportunities. Additionally, newly released EchoVideo capabilities like 360-degree video, browser-based capture, and an exclusive Microsoft OneDrive connection are encouraging usage in both large and small enterprises.
“By working with Echo360 to make facets of education more universally accessible, we’re removing barriers to learning and sharing knowledge. At Rev, we believe every voice should be heard, and by helping instructors share information with a broader audience, and ensuring every student can engage with the material, we’re making the experience of learning more inclusive,” stated, Jason Chicola, CEO of Rev.
