The next step is to create a link that points to the Echo360 LTI Provider tool created above. In Blackboard this is referred to as Create Placement or Manage Placement. This "places" a link to the Echo360 External Tool into the Assessments menu for course content.
The two most important aspects of this creation are naming the link (so it's recognizable as the link to Echo360) and identifying the tool type as a Content Type = Assessment, allowing Evaluation, so that Echo360 can share Analytics information with Blackboard.
TIP: If you are still viewing the LTI Providers list from when you created the tool, you can skip to step 4 below.
To create the Echo360 LTI tool link (placement)
TIP: The Host URL is also visible on the LTI Provider Tools list, and can be copied from there for pasting into the Tool Provider URL field. See also the best practice note below.
The Echo360 LTI tool is now available as a link for any course, under Content > Assessments. The tool can be added to courses by administrators or by instructors, whichever is appropriate to your institution.
BEST PRACTICE: Selecting
and copying the values between Echo360 and the LMS can be difficult, and
can be prone to not selecting the full value. To select the full value
of an LMS field, do the following:
1) Use your mouse to select a portion of the field values.
2) Press Ctrl+A / Command+A to "select all" of the field.
3) Press Ctrl+C / Command + C to copy the selected value.
4) Paste the value into the corresponding field in the LMS LTI External Tool configuration.
