Setting Privacy for Your Students - Kloodle

Setting Privacy for Your Students


As a teacher on Kloodle, you are able to control the privacy of your students. There are three main privacy types: –

– Private

– College only

– Public


Private profiles are visible to a student’s connections only. Anyone who is not connected to the student would need to send a connection request in order to see any of that student’s profile.

College only privacy setting allows a student to become visible to anyone within their college. This includes users who aren’t connected to that student.

Public profiles (the default setting) are visible to anyone with a Kloodle account (including members of other organisations and colleges), anyone with the link to that student’s profile, and is visible in Google searches.

This global, whole profile privacy setting can only be changed by the teacher. This then becomes the default setting that governs how visible a student profile is on Kloodle. Students have control of visibility for individual posts, but this will always be capped by the global profile setting. For example, a student may wish to post a blog as visible to the public, but if a teacher has set the profile¬†to private, the post will only ever be visible to a student’s connections.

You’ll be met with a screen that lists all of the members of that particular group. You can then set the privacy of each profile individually by using the dropdown at the side of each person’s name

Alternatively, you can set the privacy for everyone in the group by clicking “Group Privacy” at the top of the window. In this example, we’ll make every profile private.
