Overall Satisfaction with Edmodo

I am an elementary teacher at a public charter school. I personally use Edmodo in my own classroom. I am not aware of anyone else in the building who uses it, but there may be other teachers who do. I mostly use it to post warm up questions and create student polls. It helps to save time and go paperless.


  • 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.


  • It would be helpful to have a chat window to interact with students directly.
  • The mobile version is not as good as the web version and has technical glitches, which students occasionally complain about.
  • The software occasionally runs slow, but hardly ever.
  • As an intervention teacher, Edmodo has helped in teaching my intervention classes. 12 students were able to exit the intervention program this semester due to getting caught up on the material. Edmodo has been helpful in supporting my teaching and thus the success of the students.
  • Edmodo has been helpful for students who are absent a lot. It makes it very easy for them to get caught up on work without me having to chase them around.
  • Some parents are busy and don't have time to come in for a face to face conversation with the teacher. Edmodo makes it so these parents can still easily communicate with me.
I like Edmodo more because it is much more visually appealing than other similar products. It is very similar to other social media platforms that students use all of the time at home. This makes it more fun, and it is definitely very user friendly. Although there are other similar software, Edmodo is definitely worth trying.
Edmodo is great for improving communications among students, teachers, and parents. It is a good one stop shop for anything related to managing a class via an online platform. Whether this means sharing files, giving assignment feedback, etc., it can do whatever you need. Occasions where it less appropriate are if you use a platform like Google Classroom instead, or have separate methods of doing all the functions that Edmodo does.
