Groups are a great way to communicate with certain groups of people. In addition, you can upload files and documents that are specific to that group. Once you create a group, you just need to distribute the code to those people that you would like to join. The Principal’s Corner-this would be a great place to house documents such as planning period schedules, lunch schedules, permission slips, duty schedules, etc. Meeting notes could be posted here, as well as campus-wide announcements.The Teacher’s Lounge-this could be a place where you build a sense of community on your campus (kind of like a community bulletin board). Staff members could post celebrations and accomplishments. (celebrate the birth of a baby, someone’s daughter got accepted to a college, etc.)
Professional development groups can be created to support campus initiatives. For example, if your campus just went through CHAMPS training, you (or the person that facilitated the training) could create a CHAMPS group to post training resources and discussion questions. Campus staff could share ideas of how they are applying what they learned in the training. It’s a great way to keep the conversation going!
Administrators do not have to create a separate account. They can access their personal and admin account within the same login. Have administrators locate the Account link and select “Switch to School Admin”.On the settings page, they can change the basic information on the account. They can also provide a link to the campus webpage, which will be listed on the school’s Edmodo page. Lastly, they can upload a school logo for their account. (This image should be a square image with the dimensions of 200×200 or smaller).
From the Manage page, you can oversee your entire community. All members of your community: teachers, admins, and students are represented here. You can update access privileges, reset passwords, check grades, and more.1. Update Privileges – All teachers have member privileges by default. You may advance Teacher Members to Teacher Admin or District Admin privileges.2. View Grades – View teacher gradebooks or individual student grades by clicking on the gradebook icon.3. Remove Members – Administrators may remove any teacher or student from the subdomain. Note that removing teachers removes their students from your school or district as well, unless those students are also members of another teacher’s group in the subdomain. Removing students is also a best practice for students who graduate or leave a school, as it allows them to retain their accounts for future use.4. Delete Students – Administrators can delete student accounts, effectively removing the student from all groups and locking the student from their account. To have a student account restored, contact Edmodo Support.5. View Message Streams – view any member’s message stream by clicking on their name in the list. You can also view individual groups that were created by a teacher. (For example, you can click on Teacher A’s name and view all the groups he/she created, as well as the activity within each of the groups).
Those who have school admin rights can change the access of other staff members.
Admin must be in their admin account to post a school-wide event.
An additional benefit of claiming a subdomain is the ability to monitor Edmodo usage throughout your school or district. To access statistics, simply select the Analytics menu item at the top of your Admin View. From the Analytics page, you will be able to monitor the engagement level of your school and district for any given date range. You can also check activity levels of individual teachers, students, and groups on Edmodo. Lastly, you can view the number of teachers, students, and groups in your school.
This is done from within your personal account (not admin). Teachers must be a part of the district’s subdomain in order to receive this message.
