Did you know your school or district may have its own Edmodo community? Joining your community by logging in through your school or district subdomain (e.g. yourdistrictname.edmodo.com) is a critical best practice for using Edmodo in the classroom and will allow you to easily collaborate with other teachers in your school or district. In addition, when you join the community, you will earn the Edmodo Subdomain User Badge in recognition of your commitment to providing a safe and secure learning environment for your students.

To find out if you have a community, contact an administrator at your school or district to obtain your subdomain URL and school code. From there, you should:

  1. Log in to Edmodo via your subdomain URL with your existing username and password.
  2. Enter the school code provided by your school or district administrator.

That’s all there is to it! If your school or district does not yet have a subdomain, an administrator can always claim one at https://www.edmodo.com/institutions.

    I know that logging into your subdomain is a best practice, and I know that it should improve security, but I am not quite sure why. Can anyone help me understand why it is best practice to log in with your subdomain and how it increases security. I am doing a training on Wednesday and I want to be able to explain this best practice. Thanks in advance!

      Nicole,
      We recently ran into this answer on why. Through the subdomain a district admin/school admin can verify teachers and students for that school. On general Edmodo, almost anyone can sign up and be “a teacher”, but in the subdomain all teachers are verified. My guess would also be that there will be enhanced features in the future for districts, but this step is crucial.

    Is there a list of subdomains and how can you check to see if your school/system has one?
