Spotlight Privacy & Terms

Where can I see the Spotlight Terms of Service?

  • When you begin to upload resources, you will agree to the Terms of Service for Edmodo Spotlight. For reference, you can see the Spotlight Terms of Service here.

Where can I learn more about guidelines for copyright concerns for my adapted resources?

Who owns the content I upload?

  • You own your original content. You own all the rights associated with copyright.

Who will see the content I upload? Can I keep my uploaded content private?

  • When you publish a resource, anyone using Spotlight will be able to view the resource listing. If you keep content in “Draft” mode, only you will be able to see it. Please note you can edit or remove your published resources at any time by opening Spotlight, selecting your profile picture in the top right, then choosing “My Account”. From there, your resources will be found in the "Resources" tab.

I am concerned about the proprietary ownership of materials I have created on "school time" using "school resources." 

I do not understand the Creative Commons License Options. 

Creative Commons License Options give you more control over how your original content is shared, modified and/or utilized by the Edmodo Community.

ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA): This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to “copyleft” free and open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use. 

Attribution (CC-BY): This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.

No-Derivatives (CC-BY-ND): This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
