Echo360, the global leader in active and distance learning solutions, and Cengage Learning, a leading global educational content, software and services company, today announced a partnership that, with the purchase of a new Cengage Learning textbook as requested by their professor, provides students with a six-month subscription to the Echo360 classroom engagement product, LectureTools.

Developed by University of Michigan instructor, and Cengage Learning author, Dr. Perry Sampson, LectureTools is designed to improve student engagement by leveraging the use of a student’s smartphone, tablet or laptop. The product allows instructors and students to communicate directly by participating in polls, quizzes and other interactive sessions. Students are also able to anonymously ask questions without interrupting class and could request that the professor revisit difficult material they had a hard time digesting. Ultimately, LectureTools shrinks large classroom settings into a personable environment where professors have the rare ability to calibrate their instruction and respond to student needs, in real-time.

“LectureTools is built to leverage student devices to create a truly engaging environment that reduces distractions and improves learning,” said Fred Singer, CEO of Echo360. “Our partnership with Cengage Learning allows us to extend LectureTools into new academic communities as we expand our product availability across higher education campuses worldwide.”

Cengage currently publishes hundreds of individual titles across eight unique brands and reaches thousands of higher education institutions. By partnering, Cengage and Echo360 further a mutual dedication to focus on engagement in the classroom by creating a hybrid solution that compliments digital and print learning systems.

“We are thrilled to partner with Echo360 and to introduce our customers to LectureTools,” said Pam Snow, SVP and Director of Strategic Customer Partnerships, Cengage Learning. “Cengage Learning is committed to transforming learning with tailored technology solutions that accelerate student engagement and enhance the educational experience for both faculty and students.
