The instructions below will add Echo360 as an External App in Canvas at the Account level. While you can add the Echo360 App at the Course level, we strongly recommend adding it at the Account level. Adding the app to the Account automatically makes it available for every course configured for the account. It can be removed from individual courses if necessary.
These procedures must be performed by the LMS administrator.
To create an Echo360 App in Canvas
Selecting and copying the values between Echo360 and the LMS can
be difficult, and can be prone to selection errors. 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.
If you add the app at the Account level, all courses configured for the account will have the App listed on the left and available for use.
IMPORTANT: You can leave the Echo360 link on the left navigation for all courses, however if Instructors want to export Echho360 Analytics to their Canvas gradebook, the link must be added as an Assignment to each course, then removed from the left navigation. ONLY STUDENT ACCESS THROUGH ASSIGNMENTS can be logged in the Canvas gradebook. While Echo360 retains all student participation information, Canvas will only show participation through the Assignments link.
