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 the current 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. This will happen each time you create a new LTI link in your Bb course; continue through the prompts with current term and the section you are using (001 or cloned section name) to link to individual Echo sessions or the section home (list of all videos).
