Overall Satisfaction with Edmodo

We use Edmodo to connect with students, fellow teachers, parents, and a large professional community. Edmodo supports student management, as it is a must for a teacher with more than one class and subject; ensuring a very efficient workflow. It also helps us assign instructional content and create assessments - with the advantage of a grading tool which parents and students can access.
  • 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.
  • Great customer service.
  • Ease of assessing every student on every class.
  • Needs work to solve the feed cluttering.
The advantage of Edmodo over Google Classroom is mainly the assessment component, some applications that are very worth using, and the professional community that can help any teacher in regards to instruction, information, or resources.
Edmodo is a great tool trusted by educators everywhere. It boasts a healthy amount of contributors and resources. It is great for measuring success using the various assessments tools it has (including a grading tool). However, there are some aspects that can definitely be better such as: use of the screen's real estate (responsive), management of communities "feeds", iOS app's features, and perhaps a bit snappier.
