Edmodo is a cloud-based learning management application for teachers to connect and collaborate with parents and students.
The solution allows teachers to create academic groups, distribute assignments and homework, schedule online tests and track student performance. Edmodo also offers collaborative tools for students to post questions, conduct polls and interact with each other. Teachers can award certificates and badges to students based on their performance in online tests and exams.
The snapshot feature allows teachers to monitor academic progress, track student performance and view upcoming sessions. Parents can also register with Edmodo and track the academic progress of their child in real time. With Edmodo, educators can categorize their content and can also sell premium educational content and request information from students or parents.
Edmodo offers dedicated mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows smartphones and tablets. Support is available through an online help center.

Benefits of using Edmodo in the special education classroom
how similar the interface appears to the much more familiar Facebook, but very secure for classroom use
Quizzes can't be imported, but have to be completely retyped.
If comparing to other alternatives, consider low learning curve because of similarity to FB, and ability to reset passwords for students.

Helpful for students and parents to keep up on assignments
It is an easy to use format similar to social media students already use.
It is sometimes slow and information is hard to pull up.
Ask specific questions so you receive more useful feedback.
Igor from Technion
The product is reliable and affordable. User friendly and intuitive
Updates are not as often as they can be. Some improvements can be done
Get some trials that are out there until you evaluate your needs and then choose the proper software for your needs
Janet from Wake county Schools
I love getting new ideas for lesson plans. Plus, it's an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues.
Nothing...everything is very easy to use. Maybe the only thing would be the ability to access it more easily from home.
Get started as soon as you are able, and continue using it, to make the most of the product.

I use this in my classroom.
It is user friendly, easy to navigate and professionally relevant.
I don't have any criticisms of this product at this time.
My recommendation would be to use educators to evaluate the software.
Amy from Fulton Schools
Not lower elementary friendly
Easy to use, has an app you can use to post pictures straight from your phone.
We are mandated to use it with kindergarteners and it is not appropriate for their technology levels.
