New: Control Your Students' Privacy Settings!

After a number of requests from educators, the Duolingo Dashboard now allows you to control the privacy settings of students in your class.

Just go into your Dashboard settings and click ‘student privacy settings’.

A module will pop up that lets you customize your students’ Duolingo experience.

Now we just have to hope that teachers are on the ball when students start to spam...

Well done! As a teacher I can say that our feedback rarely makes it to people who design educational software. Luis expressed his view of the usual model of educational software and I'm glad to see that he's sticking to his guns and making a product that reacts to classroom needs.

    Hi,

    are the three settings disabled by default?
    Could be great to "fight" spam, IMO.

    Is there a way to control privacy by section? My advanced students could benefit from discussion and immersion, but I would like to disable those settings for my beginning students .

    We're planning to do this!

    This could be a great Idea, but it could be used wrong!

    Is this only available for English at the moment? I added the Dutch localization strings and went to test them out, but it's not showing up for me:

    The privacy settings now show up in the Dutch display, but they are still in English.

    Thanks for your feedback, it should be fixed now.

    I think that this addition can really help my class... not elementary but fools nevertheless.

    I have inappropriate accounts requesting to add my students with inappropriate photos. How do I block that?
