Group Directory for Teachers

The Group Directory allows Teachers who are members of School or District Accounts on Edmodo the ability to make any Edmodo Groups they own public to other Teachers in their School or District Community. Any Teacher in the School or District Network can then view and join these Groups in a single click without needing to supply a Group Code.

To Join a Group from your School or District's Group Directory:

  1. From the homepage of your Teacher Account, click on your School Community or District Community tab on the bottom left side of your screen
  2. Select the “Group Directory” tab 
  3. Browse the list of Groups and click the green "Join Group" button on the right to instantly access the Group. 

Note: If there are students in the Group the button will read "Request to Join." An owner or CoTeacher in the Group will need to accept your join request. 

To Add a Group from your School or District's Group Directory:

  1. From the homepage of your Teacher Account, click on your School Community or District Community tab on the bottom left side of your screen
  2. Select the “Group Directory” tab 

Note: At this time, Group Directory is a feature only available to Teachers on Edmodo.

If no other Groups have been added to your School or District Group Directory, a special menu will appear to help guide you through the process. Here you can either Create a Group to post to the Group Directory, or Add an existing Group.

If your School or District Group Directory already contains some Groups that have been added by other Teachers or Admins, you may Create or Add Groups using the buttons in the Group Directory menu.

  • Clicking on any available "Create Group" options will allow you to create a new Group for Teachers in your School or District Community.

Note: Be sure that one of the available "Public to Staff" options is selected to enable your Group to display on the Group Directory.

  • Clicking "Add Group" will allow you to add one of your existing Edmodo Groups to your School or District Group Directory.

To Remove a Group from your School or District's Group Directory, simply Edit your Group's Privacy Settings:

  1. Select the Group from the left Group Sidebar.
  2. Select the "Group Settings" button on the right side of the middle panel. 
  3. Click "Manage Group."
  4. Edit your Group Privacy Settings by changing the drop-down option to "Private to Group Members."
  5. Click "Save Settings" to save the changes.

Note: If the Group Directory doesn't appear in your Teacher Account, you may need to sign up for a free School or District Account.
