How do I take notes in Echo?

Echo has a new experimental feature that lets teachers and students create notes and attach them to courses, folders, and activities. After creating notes, teachers and students can review and edit them at any time.

These notes are intended for personal use and only the creator can access them.

NOTE: This feature must be turned on by your Echo administrator. Click here to learn about advanced features and how your Echo admin can turn them on or off.
