Edmodo

2019-05-12

Pros

Makes it easy to communicate with parents and students about deadlines, class notes, and other important memos

Cons

There are a few features that I wish Edmodo included, such as a behavior management element (think class Dojo) and a checklist feature that I could pin for students to have a quick reference of the week's due dates.

Have an online classroom to run? Edmodo is for you

2019-04-11

However, I believe the software has a long way to before it enters the streamline for learning management systems.

Pros

Edmodo initially may seem like Facebook repurposed for collaborative learning. The description would not be far from the truth.

Cons

The calendar function could be improved upon.

It is an incredible educational platform, both for teachers and for students.

2018-07-24

Edmodo is the ideal space for students and teachers to communicate. The software allows you to share files, links and messages as well as to propose assignments and manage them. Compared to other educational platforms, edmodo works very well.

Pros

It is an attractive tool for both students and teachers because it functions as a social network and facilitates the learning process.

Cons

To be an educational platform its operation is quite acceptable and there are no negative aspects to mention. In my opinion, small details could be added to improve its functioning, such as an option that allows students to communicate with each other.

A great tool for distance learning and elearning

2020-05-05

It is very easy for teachers to share content, lessons, assignments, etc. with students and there are lots of great features for teachers to easily see and track student progress.

Pros

I am the director of educational technology at a school that recently moved to distance learning. This has been a great tool for allowing our teachers to deliver quality content over the web.

Cons

Right now it is free for teachers because of the COVID-19 crisis. I am unsure if we will have the budget to pay for it if it is not free next year.

Pros

is a great application allows me to elaborate my class of next days and compile them with my students or colleagues, likewise has several tools to make their use easier and more comfortable.

I recommend using Edmodo especially for the multiple functions it offers, such as constant communication with your students and colleagues, calendar of activities where it informs you of events registered in this way, not to let anything happen, elaboration of classes and activities, it is very easy.

Valuable tool for entire school system.

2018-06-01

Edmodo is a great way to engage students in class and monitor their progress.

Pros

This software makes a huge difference in and out of the classroom. In class, it provides ways for students to collaborate.

Cons

Students need an email address to use, which young ones cannot do. Posting assignments can be time consuming. It is also a little hard to use with ESL students at first.

Good LMS to Help Manage the Classroom

2018-11-09

After playing with a number of LMS apps and continuing to revamp my needs and redesign what online learning should look like, other LMS might just offer more in flexibility/features.

Pros

As is the case with most LMS apps out there, Edmodo does a nice job shifting from paper-digital, and giving students and teachers a platform to help manage and stay organized in the digital space. The fact that you can do a lot with the free platform is a big plus and educators Everything updates in real time, and is simple enough to put together your digital needs in one space.

Cons

The more we can limit sending links and have one program integrate everything else into it, the better classroom management will be.

Edmodo

2020-02-15

It was really good until I realized what features they were missing. I made the decision to switch to Schoology as a result, and haven't looked back.

Pros

I initially started using Edmodo in my classroom as an 8th grade teacher. It allowed students to submit work on an iPad and get it to me easily. They had a great set up, very user friendly, and it fit right into my classroom routine.

Cons

They went a different direction in terms of focus for the platform- more a social media and less a learning management system, and therefore I had to make the decision to move away from it.
