Identify Administrators and Assign Privileges
We recommend that you identify one or more administrators per school. These “admins” can be assigned one of three privilege types, as noted below. Best practice shows that having campus mentors (i.e. lead teachers) in addition to instructional technology team members, improves the quality and pace of the roll out. Edmodo administrators are often instructional technology leaders, professional development coordinators, curriculum specialists in addition to technology administrators.
Teacher accounts can be assigned to 1 of 3 privilege levels:
- 1. Teacher (Member): Default teacher access to manage your groups (classes) and students.
- 2. Teacher (School Admin): Ability to manage all teacher and student members in your school, and view your school’s analytics.
- 3. Teacher (District Admin): Ability to manage all teacher and student members in your district, and view your district’s analytics.
To change the rights for individual users click on the “Manage” link at the top of your Edmodo admin homepage. All teachers within the list will have a drop down menu to the right of their name and username. Simply pull down this menu to change their privilege level.
You may also adjust your administrator’s notification settings by going to the Settings page of your Admin Account and selecting each administrator and the types of notifications you would like them to receive.
From the Manage page, you can oversee your entire community. All members of your community: teachers, admins, and students are represented here. You can update access privileges, reset passwords, check grades, and more.
- Update Privileges – All teachers have member privileges by default. You may advance Teacher Members to Teacher Admin or District Admin privileges.
- View Grades – View teacher gradebooks or individual student grades by clicking on the gradebook icon.
- Remove Members – Administrators may remove any teacher or student from the subdomain. Note that removing teachers removes their students from your school or district as well, unless those students are also members of another teacher’s group in the subdomain. Removing students is also a best practice for students who graduate or leave a school, as it allows them to retain their accounts for future use.
- Delete Students – Administrators can delete student accounts, effectively removing the student from all groups and locking the student from their account. To have a student account restored, contact Edmodo Support.
- View Message Streams – view any member’s message stream by clicking on their name in the list.
- Delete Schools (District admins only) – District administrators may remove schools. Note that this removes the entire community membership. Highlight (hover over) the name of the school and click the delete button to remove the school entirely.
