Managing the School Library as a School Administrator

The School Library is a common repository of lessons that can be curated to make lessons easily available to all users in a school.

For example, you can organize folders in your School Library by grade level or subject area, and have teachers add lessons into the folders. Or, as an administrator, you can vet the lessons you’d like teachers to use and add them into folders and subfolders within the school library. 

School Library Settings 

The gear next to School Library allows you to rename your School Library and grant or remove permission for all users in the school to add of your user's access to add lessons to the shared library.


Adding Folders to the School Library

As a School Administrator, you can add and organize folders in the School Library. You are also able to add sub-folders nested within any folder to further organize.

To add a folder within the School Library, click on the blue + Add to Library button and select New Subfolder.


A pop-up will prompt you to name the Folder.


Adding Lessons to a Folder

Once you have added a folder, you can move lessons from the School Library into the folder by selecting “Add Some” or “Add Lessons”. You can add lessons from the Nearpod Lesson Library to the Folder by clicking on the blue “+Add to Library” box to the top left of your window and selecting “Find Lessons”.


Adding lessons from the School Library to a Folder
