You will now see a screen labeled Share Settings:

  1. To publish to a course, select Class at the top of the screen.
  2. Use the dropdown menu to select the course.
  3. Select the corresponding term and section you wish to publish to.
  4. To publish a new lecture or video, select New Class, and enter the name of the video and date and time of the class period. Class description is optional. Note: if you already created a placeholder for this video in Echo, you could select Existing Class, but this is uncommon.
  5. Make available: Choose when you would like to make the item available to students (Now, On a specific date, or Don't make available).
  6. Make unavailable: Choose when you would like to make the item unavailable to students (Never, or On a specific date).
  7. When finished, click the Share button to publish the content to the class.

With Echo auto provisioning, your course will typically pull the name as it appears in Blackboard, including the course term and section number, as pictured above. When choosing Term and Section number in Echo, you should choose AUTO for Term and 001 for Section, as these are the defaults for every auto provisioned Echo section, unless you have a cloned section you are using for the semester.
