Overall Satisfaction with Edmodo

My students are in the Wonder League Robotics Competition (WLRC). The organizers of the competition require teacher participants to use Edmodo to stay abreast of program changes and to obtain help regarding submissions and the robot performance. Edmodo is in place due to the requirements of an outside vendor, so it is only used by two people in my organization as far as I know. Edmodo allows me to network with other WLRC participants and the WLRC organizers to ensure the students are meeting the complex requirements set by the WLRC as they evolve.
  • Seeing updates given by the organization.
  • Finding out the concerns of other participants.
  • Accessing help from competition organizers.
  • Searching for specific Edmodo "courses" is very cumbersome.
  • I would like the ability to have multimedia play directly on the platform.
  • Edmodo has allowed me to ensure student success in the robotics competition by finding out updates in a timely way.
  • Edmodo appears rudimentary and not user-friendly so I would turn to Google Classroom and other alternatives when building my own Learning Management System.
Edmodo is inferior to the two listed products. I did not have a choice in selecting Edmodo. Wonder Workshop mandates that all users sign up for Edmodo as a condition for participation in a student competition. Edmodo is less user-friendly, less robust, and less effective. Edmodo has only basic functions and doesn't allow users to search efficiently.
Edmodo is good for basic dissemination of information to users. The interface is not very attractive. It also is not robust for sharing information beyond text and simple documents. Since the search function is cumbersome it isn't appropriate for finding information quickly. Google Classroom is much more user friendly so I would suggest that instead of Edmodo.
