Echo360 Case Study
Echo360 is a global leader in active and distance learning solutions. The company needed to run its learning platform in an environment that could scale to meet traffic spikes caused by school schedules and be cost-effective enough to meet tight school budgets. Furthermore, reliability is mission-critical for the schools that use the platform. AWS gives the learning company the ability to deliver robust learning solutions that can scale to handle the load as two million students across 650 schools in 30 countries access the system. By taking advantage of the global reach of AWS and using AWS features to build redundancy, automation and other cost-saving features into the platform, Echo 360 can deliver a reliable solution globally at 30 percent less than what a customer would be able to do.
With Amazon Transcribe’s Automatic Speech Recognition, Echo360 is improving the learning experience for all students by developing capabilities for smarter search, deeper ways to engage with content, and a pathway for colleges and universities to offer effective and affordable closed captioning for all academic video. Using this service, transcripts from educational sessions can be created automatically and seamlessly integrated into the Echo360 platform.
