Add the link as above. When you click on the link you will see a screen asking you to choose a section.

Type in your module code, select the Term and Section then choose Link Content:

OPTIONAL   Linking to individual Echo360 Engage content such as individual lectures

If you want to link from Moodle to the content of any individual Engage 'class' or recording in addition to (or instead of) a list of all of the content:

Follow the instructions above,  but select 'Link to a Classroom'. 

Click on the title to highlight the content you would like to link to from Moodle, and click 'LINK CONTENT'.
