What is a Public Group?

You can now create Public Groups to connect with teachers in your school, district and beyond! Public Groups are searchable and discoverable by any teacher on Edmodo, and they are great ways to connect with like minded educators.

A Public Group is:

  1. Set to "Public to All Teachers" in the Privacy Settings for the Group.
  2. Approved by Edmodo to be public to all teachers on Edmodo.
  3. Owned and moderated by the original teacher owner of the Group.
  4. Able to be set back to private by the owner of the Group.

To make your Group public:

  4. Enter a description for the class in the bottom panel.
