How to Organize Your Edmodo Library
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
The Edmodo Library is a great place to collect resources to use in your classroom. These can be files (of any format), links, videos, images, etc. To help you make the most of your Edmodo Library, here are four tips for organizing your library:
Folders are an excellent way to organize resources in your library. You can create folders for each group/course, project, unit of study or activity you hold in your classroom. Learn more about creating folders.
After you’ve added resources to your folders, you can re-order them by dragging and dropping the items into the order you prefer. Please note that this can only be done within folders. Your library is organized in reverse chronological order.
Edit or rename a folder by selecting the folder from the left panel, then placing your cursor on the folder name located at the top of the page, just above the “Play View” button. Once you’ve made your changes, select the green checkmark to save them.
Copy Shared Folders
If you find great resources from other educators within a shared folder, you easily copy that folder. To do this:
- Create a new folder.
- Select the “Shared with me” link located below the “New” folder icon.
- Select the group where the shared folder was located, then select the folder that has the content you want to copy.
- Select each piece of content you want to copy.
- On the right panel, select folder and choose the folder where you want to copy the info to.
Don’t forget that you can find great content for your folders through Edmodo Communities! Visit the subject area communities to see what valuable resources other educators are sharing. Visit the Publisher Communities to find digital content and resources offered by education publishers. (Select the “Collection” link on the left panel of any Publisher community to view the content.)
