  • Safe, collaborative platform for teachers and students.
  • Allow teachers to share and house resources for others to use.
  • Various engagement tools to assess, promote dialogue, and interact with students.
  • I do wish they would bring back Snapshots which allowed for brief formative assessments based on standards.

  • The platform is aesthetically pleasing. It is very similar to popular social media platforms.
  • It is great for formative assessment because you can give students immediate feedback on evaluations.
  • You can upload all kinds of files, making it easy for students to access information anywhere, anytime.

  • The platform is simple and concrete. The Facebook like style, makes it easier to use and to get use to.
  • The tools available in this platform are amazing - scheduling a test, reminders, and having statistics of the grades of all students or users.
  • It has included Office 365 Online (for those who don't have the opportunity to buy a subscription or those that are in a hurry and want to do their work online).
  • You can create as many groups as you wish.
  • The set up is a little bit difficult.
  • The IP redirection for users in your institution can be something overwhelming.

  • Scheduling homework assignments is great.
  • Connecting with parents is very smooth.
  • Having multiple teachers to share a group of students is very easy to do.
  • Lots of competition. Many programs offer similar tasks or abilities, some that have better UI.
  • Not always the easiest to connect to my school server for uploading student information.

  • Edmodo allows teachers to control who has access to the materials. This ensures the instructional environment is protected from anonymous users or others outside the classroom with no valid interest.
  • Edmodo offers features that can be found in other "walled garden" classroom social network services. For example, Google Classroom functions very similarly.

  • The ability to reach a teacher real-time, and for the teacher to reach parents real-time, is amazing. Not just useful, it can make a true difference in the day-to-day school experience of our children.
  • Edmodo definitely engages the parents in their children's education by keeping them involved and interested in what is going on in the classroom, where most parents usually don't get involved.
  • Edmodo brings parents and teachers peace of mind. They know they can quickly and casually communicate with each other, even if it is just a quick "my child had a rough night" or "A is missing her orange folder this morning."
  • Can't think of any. Love the fact that I receive notifications and never miss anything sent out by the teacher!!

  • Ads - Lots of ads.

  • Edmodo provides users to create their own classes. This is a perfect and strong side of Edmodo for me.
  • Edmodo is really safe and a reliable software for anyone like teachers, students and even for parents.
  • Easy to use. Edmodo is basic and similar to much other software used by people like Facebook.
  • Edmodo does not have a good interface when you connect it. The background is not making people get excited.
  • The functionality of Edmodo is quite okay I can not say anything about features and what the product provides you.
  • I want to highlight the mobile version of Edmodo at this point. The Mobile version is not working properly as much as the website version. It needs some work and improvements.

  • It is very similar to Facebook in layout so you can learn about Edmodo fast.
  • It is asy to make assignments, homework and grades and comments to students.
  • The most important thing for me is that Edmodo is really reliable and safe software for anyone.
  • The compatibility of the application should be improved for smartphones.
  • Customer service should be improved as well, takes a long time to reach customer support.
  • Edmodo needs more marketing and multi-language support.

  • Communicating with students and parents.
  • Gradebook that allows students and parents to constantly monitor student progress.
  • The social learning environment is awesome! Sometimes students help each other before I need to even get involved.
  • Transparency.
  • Automated grading of quizzes.
  • The lack of weighted grading features has frustrated some of my colleagues.
  • The inability for parents to engage in any two-way communication has frustrated some.
  • The "fill-in-blank" feature of the quizzes is only useful if you're checking for the exact word and spelling that ought to go in the blank.

  • Edmodo syncs with my Google Drive, making the sharing of assignments, handouts, pictures, and videos incredibly easy. Because I can store often-used materials in my Edmodo library, I can find them easily for the next time I am working on that unit.
  • The quizzes are easy to set up and they can be used again, so if I need to do a check for understanding on a particular topic in multiple classrooms, or use the same baseline data collection quiz for more than one semester, I need only create the quiz once.
  • The calendar feature for Edmodo allows me to plan my lessons days, even weeks ahead. I can keep assignments hidden until the day I plan to teach them, and if I need extra time for a lesson within a unit, adjusting the due dates is a simple drag-and-drop operation.
  • One of the features that my students and I were upset to lose was the Tagging option for assignments. When I used the Tags to mark a Unit, students who had missed a significant amount of school could search for the appropriate tag (say, Unit 2 Persuasive) to find the assignments and materials easily. Having to scroll down through the news feed was time-consuming and cumbersome, and students were unable to locate lecture notes by clicking on the calendar, so without the tags, locating missed assignments was frustrating.
  • I don't mind making my own badges, but I wish there were an easy-to-find location where I could find badges created by other teachers so I could borrow them for my own classes.

Classroom tops Edmodo

  • Classroom discussions. A teacher is able to pose a question and students were able to respond and discuss it, often times at home.
  • Posting assignments. Teachers were able to post assignments and students were able to see them all the time, even when they are absent.
  • Going paperless. Edmodo helped us make the transition to going paperless.
  • Class discussions were incredibly helpful, but were not easily threadable, causing students to not always be able to respond to each other.
  • Connecting with Google Drive was hit and miss, and in general required a lot of training and troubleshooting, even for our more technologically advanced teachers.

  • Edmodo is an excellent communication tool. Its Facebook style of posts makes it a familiar environment for teachers to communicate what's happening in class with both students and parents.
  • Edmodo's ability to submit and grade assignments online is easy to use and very similar to some other popular LMS platforms. Assignment collection is straightforward and the digital grading tools are simple and effective.
  • Edmodo makes it extremely easy to get both students and parents into the the LMS system. Edmodo also has an easy to use subgrouping feature as well, allowing teachers to divide individual classrooms into smaller groups for particular assignments.
  • Edmodo's online testing feature is fairly easy to use. I have found this a useful feature for both informal and formal assessment of students.
  • Edmodo's polling feature is simple and effective. There are many uses for polling both in and out of the classroom.
  • Edmodo's messaging feature is a nice way to communicate between student and teacher or parent and teacher.
  • Edmodo's app (Android or iOS), although not as feature rich as the website, works well with many of the features already listed above.
  • Edmodo has a very nice Calendar feature, allowing the teacher to easily post important information and/or due dates of assignments.
  • Edmodo makes it easy to share folders, either with the public or with your classes.
  • Edmodo, like many other popular LMS platforms, integrates nicely with Google Drive.
  • Edmodo has a great many community forums. This really is an amazing feature of their LMS. It is so very easy to connect with other teachers and bounce ideas off of each other.
  • Although Edmodo has a nice online assessment feature, it lacks in critical areas. It is difficult to attach diagrams or charts to questions. This can be done, but they are displayed in a module which pops up in front of the question. This thus hides the questions when looking at the diagram, picture, etc.
  • Questions can be randomized in Edmodo when students take an assessment, which is a nice feature. Answer choices, however, cannot be randomized.
  • Edmodo could use a much better WYSIWYG editor. It can be difficult to incorporate equations or subscript for instance.
  • The analytical data offered in assessments is decent, but it would be good if the following was added: it would be good to see which answers where most commonly missed by students; it would be good if more class data was given, such as average, median, low scores.
  • Other LMS platforms do a much nicer job of incorporating these feature directly into the question.
  • You are unable to add attachments to Calendar postings. This would be a very useful feature.
  • Updates can get lost after a while, and are difficult to search for. Once you have a large numbers of postings, finding older postings, which very well could be assignments or assessments, can be tedious for both students and parents. Even with using the built in filter feature, this is certainly an area I could see improvement being made.
  • Although Edmodo has a nice Folder feature to store your materials as a teacher, it is painstaking to use once you have a large number of items in a folder. The drop and drag feature is slow, and doesn't always stick. There is no subfolder feature as well. So, although you can organize materials, other LMS platforms make it much easier to organize and share you materials with students, parents, and other colleagues.

  • Edmodo allows students and teachers to post real time, group wide status updates. This is a strength because it keeps the class actively engaged across multiple mediums (web, and face to face contact).
  • Similar to other social media platforms, Edmodo allows students to engage with other users that they may not normally contact. This encourages social development.
  • Edmodo allows students to post photos to their profiles. This encourages personal expression.
  • Edmodo could improve by allowing users to create more diverse profiles with special backgrounds, cover photos, and about me sections. Young students like to be creative and express their interests with others.
  • Edmodo could allow for a parent login functionality that allows them to view student work without actively participating in classroom discussion. Grades could also be submitted to parents.
  • Edmodo could allow teachers to share assignments with other teachers outside of their network. This would allow for more creative lesson creation and collaboration with other industry professionals.

  • Student management.
  • Ease of creating and grading assessments.
  • It works with Google Drive.
  • An app store.
  • Its customer service is great.
  • As an established company, parents feel safe to let their children use this tool.
  • The "news feed" clutters the experience. If someone is linked to various communities and classrooms, then this feed is endless. As someone who looks for an efficient workflow, this is very important.
  • The iOS app needs some work. Notifications are hit and miss (iOS 8).
  • The overall layout needs to be cleaner (less distractions).
  • Uploading items through the library can be better. If attaching a file from Google Drive, then it will show the most recent files.

  • Edmodo is a safe online educational platform for teachers and students.
  • Edmodo connects educators across the globe.
  • I would like to be able to classify my homework into marking periods, as of now all grades appear as assignments were posted, pethaps give us a feature that allows the teacher to divide into marking periods, semesters, quarters etc.
