Many teachers choose to set their entire class to read-only status if their students are still learning about digital citizenship. Once a Group is set to read-only, students can see everything their teacher posts to the Group, but they cannot post directly to the Group; they can only send direct messages to the teacher, submit assignments and quizzes, and respond to polls. To change an entire Group to read only, follow these steps:
- Select the Group from the left Groups Sidebar.
- From the Group’s page, click the “Members” tab.
- At the top of the page, click the "Member Options."
- Select “Read-Only."
You can take all group members off Read-Only at any time by clicking on "Member Options" and selecting “Contributor."
Note: If you only would like to set individual students to read only, please see Set an Individual Member to Read Only.
