This tutorial is for instructors who want to have a link in their Moodle course to a list of all of the Echo Recordings for that specific course. This list is dynamic, as weekly scheduled recordings are added in Echo the students will see them and you do not need to update anything. 

The tutorial has two major parts :

1 - Creating a clickable link in Moodle

2 - Pointing that link to the list* of echo recordings for the course. 

*Linking to an individual echo recording is similar, except in part 2 you select the individual recording (In Echo360 language called a Classroom) instead of the Section Home.

Instructions below.
