How Teachers and Students Get Apps

There are several options for Teachers to share an app with Students.

  • Click on the “Share on Edmodo” button on any Spotlight resource page. This will allow you to share the Spotlight link as an attachment to a Note.
  • Click on the “Add to Edmodo Library” button on any Spotlight resource page. This will automatically add the Spotlight app to your Library. From here, you can share this resource with your Group Folder. More info here.
  • We are also building the ability for teachers to assign any Spotlight content to their students, allowing their students to access the content through their App Launcher. This functionality should be ready by Back to School 2016.
