Are your/your students' discussions or events tabs gone? Check your Duolingo for Schools' settings.

There has been a change to the default privacy settings on Duolingo for Schools classrooms. We want students to be safe by default, with the teacher or parent determining if their students are mature enough to engage in online conversations. This means we are disabling all social interactions by default, including Forums, Events, and Mature vocabulary. This will affect any classroom that has not determined these settings in the past. So if you have never been in your settings and you are a Duolingo for Schools classroom teacher, those students will not be able to see participate in the forums unless you manually change the settings.

If you are a Duolingo for Schools teacher and you want to change your classroom's settings, you can go to "Classroom settings" —> "Privacy Settings" to update your classroom's preferences.

If you are a student, you can always leave a classroom by following these instructions. Your teacher will be notified.

You might be seeing people confused about this in the coming days, and if you do, please re-direct them to this post. The relevant Help Center pages have also been updated. Thank you \o/

I have the setting for microphone OFF for my students but Duolingo is asking them questions that require microphones? How to remedy this? Please advise.

Hi there, there is not a setting to let you turn off the microphone for all students. You probably saw a setting that let you turn it off for yourself.

Each student will have to turn the microphone off for themselves at https://www.duolingo.com/settings

Perhaps they are asking you for a good reason : - They might need to get in contact with you. - Maybe some students subscribed to a certain course that hasn't come out, and Duolingo Staff members would want to email them ( as said ) about it. But I really don't know, because I am not a staff member ( yet )! You could try to get ahold of a staff member though.
