Overall Satisfaction with Edmodo
We use Edmodo to maintain a personal learning network of teachers virtually. These are teachers who work in very isolated schools and really benefit from the virtual connection that Edmodo provides. We also assist these teachers as they set up Edmodo in their classrooms. We help them backward design their student's Edmodo experience. We believe that Edmodo has the safest and most secure LMS platform available to teachers. The best part about working with Edmodo is the connection that we have with the company themselves. After meeting them at a conference, I was able to foster a partnership with them and they are very responsive to tech support and participating in our Edmodo training sessions. Edmodo is growing, they take teacher's input and spit out great new products that really enhance the user's experience. I test out each LMS that enters the market and in the past five years, nothing has come close to the experience that teachers and students have on Edmodo.

Edmodo has a simplistic and familiar design that attracts teachers and students to engage with the platform. Even though the functionality looks basic, teachers can dig deep to create personalized learning experiences quickly. Most other platforms have some of the functionality but do are very complicated to set up, log in, and use (as a teacher). The other big thing about Edmodo is that it is free. Everything that is the platform and basic use is free. Add-ons from other companies cost money but the basic design remains free. The other products are not set up the same way.
