  • A Name field.
  • An Email Address field where you can verify that Echo is using the correct email address; if your district or organization allows you to change your email address, you can do so here. 

  • Profile Picture: You can select a new profile picture here if your district or organization allows it.
  • Be sure to check the "Include my profile in the Echo Community Library" box.
  • Completely fill out the information that opens up after checking that box.

NOTE:  Fill out your profile completely and be sure to include your profile in the Echo Community Library .  This is a great way to share your work and be able to access projects, ideas and activities from across the network.

The Preferences tab includes:

  • Sidebar Navigation: Choose your prefered Activities tool layout from two options:
    • Full View shows the course tree structure in the sidebar when you open folders.

    • Simplified shows only the contents of the folder you’re in. 

  • Privacy: Some course authors use LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) to integrate external applications, like, to enhance your experience. You can choose to hide your email and/or name from these external websites by checking the appropriate boxes.
  • Accessibility: Here, you can turn on additional visual indicators if color indicators are not effective for you.
  • Hide scores in sidebar navigation and activity stream: When this box is checked, Echo displays a checkmark next to completed activities instead of the score. Check this box if you want to hide your scores when working in public spaces.
  • Hide text in toolbar buttons: Check this box if you want to save space when using smaller screens.  
  • Hide navigation icons when menu closed: Checking this box hides your Main Menu icons until you click its icon.
