How do I add Activity Metadata for my domain courses?

Note: This document references views and actions that are only available to Echo Administrators

Echo allows you to add and remove the metadata sections associated with items (folders and activities) in the Course Editor tool for the teacher role.

Select Domain settings from the vertical menu.

Select Metadata for activities.

To create a metadata section:

  1. Click Add at the bottom of the list
  1. Add a unique Name for the item
  2. Add a Title - this is what the users will see
  3. Generally you will choose Rich Text
  4. Levels - At what level or the folder structure do you want this information to appear?  
Level One is the first level of folders under the course Folder. 
Level Two impacts any folders or activities you add to those folders. 
If you do not specify any folder, all levels are shown
  5. Item Type - Select from All, Activity or Folder - Where should this information appear?
  6. Check the box Visible to Student
  7. Done
