Export Echo360 Grades to the Moodle Grade Book

If you are using Echo360 to grade student participation, you can also export engagement scores into your Moodle gradebook. This page explains how to configure the link between your Echo360 and Moodle courses using the External tool activity and then how to export grades.

To learn more, contact the Instructional Media Lab (413-545-2823 | instruct@umass.edu).

Link and Configure the Echo360 External Tool in Moodle

Before syncing grades, you must first configure the Echo360 External tool activity in Moodle. For instructions, please see Give Students Access to Echo360 Recordings through Moodle. After you have added an Echo360 External tool activity link to your Moodle course, you will need to configure it to Link to the Section Home (all classes) or Link to a Classroom (a single class session). After creating the link to Echo360, Moodle will add a corresponding column for that activity in your gradebook.

Note: If you want to export grades for specific class sessions, you will need to repeat this action for each Echo360 Class you want to be linked in your Moodle gradebook.

Export Grades from Echo360 to Moodle

  5. For each link, open the drop-down menu and select the metric you wish to send:
    • Activity participation: whether students have completed the Activity for that class session.
    • Activity score: the computed score for correct responses to questions in the Activity for that class session.
    • Attendance: whether or not the student opened the class activity.
