How do I create a project?

There are two ways to create a project in Echo:

  1. Using a template
  2. Creating one from scratch

For either method, the process starts by navigating to the Course Editor for the desired course.  The Course Editor is where teachers author the course content and manage what students can see and have access to.  To open the course editor, click the icon on the course card that looks like a pencil.


With the Course Editor open, click the "+Add to..." link.



Adding A Project Using the NTN Template


From the "Add to ..." panel, select the "NTN Templates" tab and then click on the desired template.



Give the new project a title and then click the "Add" button to make a copy of the template.  


After a few seconds, the page will refresh and the new project will appear on the workspace. Clicking on the project once will open it revlealing a set of pre-loaded folders and activities.




Double clicking on the project folder will allow you to edit the title, due dates, visibility and other settings.



Adding A Project From Scratch


From the "Add to ..." panel, select the "Built-in" tab and then click "Project".



Give the new project a title, set the start and end date for the project, and then click the "OK" button to add the project to the course.


The new project should now appear on the course syllabus.  A single click on the project title will open the project and reveal a second "Add to..." button for creating new content within the project folder.  A double click will open the item editor and allow you to edit the settings of the project (i.e. project title, start and end dates, visibility, etc)

Echo is constantly being improved based on the feedback from users and we strive to keep our documentation up to date.  If this document doesn’t match what you are seeing in Echo, please let us know.
