Just as you would create an Edmodo Group for a class or after school club, you can also create a group for a training or professional development session. This group can serve as a backchannel for discussion before, during and after the session, as well as a repository for all the content shared in the training.
To create an Edmodo training group, follow the steps below.
- Click on the icon right by the "My Groups" button in the left-side panel.
- Click on the top button "Create a Group".
- Enter a Group name, select “Professional Development” as the subject area and “Edmodo Training” as the subject in the pop-up box that appears.
- Click the “Create” button and you will be taken to the Group page which will display the Group code on the Post Stream as well as the left side panel. This is the Group code that you will need to give your teachers so they can join your Group. The Group code will automatically lock after 14 days for safety purposes, or if you lock the Group before that time. A locked Group code can still be used to join a Group, but the teacher will have to approve the request to join the Group.
