Where Students and Teachers Interact

I am a partime professor that's why I review and rate this platform based on my experience.

Pros

This is a good platform, because edmodo serves as a social media account for students and teachers where they can interact and post time to time.

Cons

The only thing that edmodo lack is the design and creativity of this platform is not enough for the millenials.

The ideal virtual classroom tool

Edmodo was an option we moved after trying one another LMS at my workplace. And we have been using Edmodo for like 2+ years now. Students find Edmodo very easy to use, as it is more like a social media. Would definitely keep using it.

Pros

The reason why I love Edmodo is because it includes many useful features of virtual learning system all in one application and it is absolutely free.
The students can perform multiple activities / assignments, they can keep a track of their grades, student-tutor communication is very easier on Edmodo, and the even more loving reason is students can re-watch the past classes too and a forum for all students to interact.

Cons

I am not able to see who are the students who are online. This would be an added advantage.

Edmodo

Overall I enjoy using this site since it is easy to use and is very accessible for my students.

Pros

I like most about Edmodo because we assign students homework on this site and they submit the assignments and we use it for essays that they submit. It is a great way for the students to be able to work from home.

Cons

If the student doesn't share the assignment with the teacher I have trouble accessing their work.

Edmodo...

Pros

Like Facebook...but for school. Edmodo is a "social-media" type platform that is easy to use and offers a variety of features from standard interactions like messaging and status updates to assessments and other LMS type scenarios.

Cons

Edmodo has too many ads. I understand that they are a necessary evil, but it is still annoying. The mobile version seems clunky. The platform seems to be geared toward K-12, a strictly higher-ed version would be nice.

Great Online Classroom

Pros

As a student, it makes submission of assignments and projects more convenient for you will just upload it in edmodo and you won't need to print it anymore also the compilation of our teacher's presentations that he/she uploaded are easily accessed in edmodo.

Cons

It is not so user-friendly and you need to explore the software but in the long run, you will be familiar and would love it.

Best way to communicate in students for academic purposes only

Improve the edmodo mobile version because not all students have their own personal computer and laptop

Pros

Edmodo is a good platform which is a big help for students on their academics, homework , school activities and projects. Teachers, Professors and Students Organizations see it as a best way to post announcement, grades, events and activities.

Cons

I don't have any issue in this software so far but there is just an instances that edmodo is on maintenance but it's not harmful enough to say i dislike this software.

Edmodo Review

Pros

I like how edmodo allows students, teachers, and parents to engage with others in real time setting. It is friendly and allows students to post photos and is easy to use.

Cons

I wish you were able to personalize your profile with special backgrounds, cover photos, etc. I think it would allow for even more engagement with students.

Great software for social learning for students and teachers

Edmodo allows teachers and students to communicate and learn together. You can easily view the discussion forums per subject/ teacher. Students can also upload and turn in their works through Edmodo even at home on a weekend.

Pros

Edmodo is free to use for parents, students and teachers. Edmodo is a social media learning where you can post your discussions and communicate with other people while learning. Edmodo has unlimited storage for teachers to post their lessons, exams and homework assignments. They can also access it via mobile or desktop.

Cons

Although bad connection of internet might be a problem using Edmodo, it is easy to use and learn. Edmodo layout and newsfeed needs to be organize well so it will not confuse the users.

Helpful, easy and

Edmodo has proven to be useful, resourceful and even fun to use, with almost no downsides. I believe all instructors/teachers/professors/students should give it a try.

Pros

My answer is coming from a student's perspective, because I have not used Edmodo as a teacher or as an Educational Institution:

Edmodo is one of those applications that you can hardly find anything negative, it just probably misses certain features that could enhance the user's experience.

It has a simple and familiar dashboard that closely resembles Facebook and LinkedIn,

The Backpack system is linked to Office 365, it lets you drop by documents as long as it is part of the Office suite, although it also accepts archives in PDF format. This is very helpful when it comes to deliver certain assignments.

If you miss a class, the teacher is able to send a video of the lectures given that day.

It easily allows you to stay in touch with your teachers/professors (As long as they use Edmodo regularly).

Teachers/Professors are able to massively facilitate to all students handouts and articles of interests through Edmodo's Folders.

There is no premium version, you get all the features for free.

Cons

It lacks a live chat group, or a private messaging feature which could be very useful.

It has a lot of ads, although any Adblocker seems to get the job done. But I encourage people to leave the ads there, this will help Edmodo grow.

Better options in the world of teaching.

Pros

The interface is friendly and welcoming. I also like that it has a social media feel to the program.

Cons

This software is more about communication and less about functionality and sharing of files, etc. between users. I felt that it was very difficult to upload information to this system.

I switched to Edmodo

Like it but still needs a lot of features integrated before I love it.

Pros

In the past, I have used quite a few applications to try and meet my needs with virtual classroom organisation but none of them really made the cut - until I finally found Edmodo. I decided to switch and don’t regret it one bit. My favourite thing is the message function between teachers and students and even their parents, keeping everyone involved and on the same page.

Cons

Although Edmodo is about the best app I’ve come across so far, it is by no means perfect and still has a way to go to before it meets a teacher’s needs. I would love to see a better planner and way to share future curricula with the students and parents so they can prepare themselves psychologically.

Your classroom everywhere

The class program can be found there, as well as the evaluations, recommendations, documents, and other materials necessary for the course to be completed. In addition, for situations in which students can not access their classroom quietly due to any emergency, Edmodo is always an alternative to ensure the learning process.

Pros

Edmodo is a great platform because it allows proffessors and students to connect anytime from everywhere. I love how students can get all the files they need during the whole period of classes, and they can also share experiences, extra info and create discussion about any subject. I think one of the best Edmodo's features is that proffessors are able to use it as a complement for presencial courses but also for non-presencial courses since it creates an environment similar to the classroom.

Cons

I think Edmodo should improve the way that the feed is loaded, sometimes people get lost when they're trying to find some files. I also think it would be great if teachers could share or connect to each others randomly in order to share papers or files to improve their own classes. The platform could be more intuitive for the user.

A Top 5 LMS

Pros

I liked how it is not intended to replace teacher led instruction, but rather just enhance it and keep it organized and a central point of reference.

Cons

Could use some additional features/integrations as well as be more competitive on their pricing.

Homework made easier for kids!

Pros

Edmodo is a software that can help both students and teachers for at home works. Students' progress can now be monitored by teachers in real time. Making it easier for the teachers to work on how to help a certain student more, and for the student to learn at their own pace. And with the students seeing their current progress, they can be really motivated to work better.

Cons

The ads can be frequent and some glitches sometimes occur especially when turning in work in a place with a really low internet speed but overall it really helps both students and teachers with communication.

Facebook for Education

In the world of education, it's always great to find new ways to present material and interact with students. Edmodo gives you a great opportunity to do that in the safety of a secure social network. It emulates facebook and then gives you a great opportunity to present materials and assignments.

Pros

I liked the social aspect and the ease of posting and creating classes and assignments. This software emulated the style and layout of facebook and was great for almost immediate feedback and commenting by students.

Cons

The hard part about this type of software is that it needs to be supported by the school system and other teachers. It doesn't work well if the school, the network, or other educators don't use it. Even a small community of educators that work together would make this worthwhile, but it is designed to be a social network and doesn't work well if your district uses other technology.

Edmodo a practical platform for teachers

The experience I have had with Edmodo is very pleasant, since I have been able to create a learning space quickly, with varied content and in addition to organizing different courses at the same time, also being able to add by mail to all the students or by the course code. I really recommend it.

Pros

Edmodo is a web platform very easy to use, with the features of a blog, but with modules with features of an LMS, such as taking students' notes, making tests or exams, allows you to maintain a communication between students in an asicronic way and also to place or link any type of teaching material from pdf to videos from youtube

Cons

The only thing that Edmodo for being a web platform, is that it can not have some facilities to add certain modules with functionalities, which allow it to be coupled with other software. neither does it have a chat or way of communicating with students among themselves, in a synchronized way or by private message.
