T2K Echo combines active and social learning by providing engaging and interactive content for learners to work on individually and in groups. The instructor creates content by importing PDFs, PowerPoints, and other files and then adds media and interactive elements.
Learners are invited to join the learning group and work on the content provided. The instructor can monitor learner progress and performance in real-time and generate a variety of reports based on actual user data.
Create the course by adding content for learners to work on. Click on the Add Item button to generate online, interactive content by importing a PDF or PowerPoint file and then adding media and interactive objects. You can also create an activity from scratch, which consists entirely of media and interaction objects, ideal for a worksheet or a learner-initiated quiz with feedback elements. Also, an assessment is available upon request, which is a testing element that does not provide feedback.
Revise by editing or removing content items. Go to the item, open the context menu, and then click on Edit or Delete. To remove published content, first click Unpublish and then Delete.
Update the existing item by clicking Edit on the context menu and then replace by uploading a new file, like a PDF or PowerPoint. Also reorder, revise, delete, or create media and interactive objects.
Edit the content item and then click on Styling. Customize the background color for the entire content item, set a default background color for an interaction, or define the default font style and color.
Click on the content item or select Play from the context menu to display the content as your learners see it. Click Preview to display the entire Echo account in a separate browse tab.
Click on the Add Learner button to invite learners. Enter each email address. When done, click the Send Invitation button. The learner’s status list is updated to show the invited learners and those who have joined the course.
When the instructor invites the learner to the course, an email invitation is automatically sent. The learner opens the email message and clicks on the Sign-In link and then from the corresponding page, creates their username and password. For subsequent sessions, the learner goes to the Log-in page and enters their login details.
When in the content item, the instructor can click the Add button, to insert media objects like images, videos, audio, and so on. Also choose from a variety of interactions such as Multiple Choice, Fill in the Blanks, and Matching.
Configure the interaction by setting a background color, adding feedback messages, selecting behavior options, and tag interactions with predefined skill labels.
The instructor can conduct a live presentation by sending a specific question to the learning group. When sent, the question appears to each learner. Just click Show for the question you want to send and then Send to learners.

Monitor learner progress and performance through the dashboard and reports. When in the content item, click on Reports.

View detailed performance data through a variety of reports.
An alert notification is triggered when learner performance falls below a predefined threshold. The two available alerts are Low Success Rate and Difficult Content. After the alert is sent, the instructor and learner can communicate by messaging.
