Pros

Whether you're a student, parent, or teacher the accounts are free. There is unlimited storage and they provide you with the ability to obtain content from nations worldwide in an effort to find the best educational resources out there.

Cons

The only con is that there are other companies just like Edmodo out there. How is Edmodo making money and how long will they be around to support the product as it is being actively used?

Pros

We are given immediate post updates from the instructor and classmates. Parents can also communicate with the instructor. It's great way to keep you with assignments too.

Cons

When the class ends, you will no longer have access to class notes or anything that was posted during the course. I'm not a huge fan of the mobile view of the site. The website is the better option of me.

Overall, the fact that this software is free makes it easy to overlook the glitches and be creative with what you have to work with. I recommend this product to anyone who is launching into setting up online learning. It's a great way to get started.

Pros

This is a free software that can be used for small institutions that do not have the money to invest in educational software. It's easy to use, it's easy to set up, it's easy to track grades, and it's easy to communicate with students and colleagues.

Cons

Sometimes that are glitches, it doesn't work consistently at all times, and it's compatible with some browsers more than others. It's not easy to get customer support, however they do respond to emails.

Sometimes I find it hard to find where a student has submitted their work as there are multiple ways on Edmodo and not every student uses the same way.

Pros

That it has the appearance of Facebook. This means that students will be used to using a program such as this.

Cons

That you can only upload 1GB of data. There are now advertisements popping up via Edmodo which I find inappropriate.

If comparing to other alternatives, consider low learning curve because of similarity to FB, and ability to reset passwords for students.

It facilitates communication between teachers and students, it is a safe place to create, manage and qualify academic activities. From my point of view, edmodo is an incredible alternative that improves education and learning

Pros

It is a Virtual Educational Communication platform, which allows interaction between teachers, students and representatives, quickly, effectively and is free, where through a group created by the teacher, you can share messages, events, documents, assignments and evaluations. It is a private virtual space, where you can access with it the entry of a unique individual code. Its interface is simple, intuitive and motivating, both for the teacher and for the student, which must be used as a complementary alternative for teaching and learning.

Cons

The lack of audio and the incorporation to the application could serve as an incentive for the achievement of the activities proposed by the teacher. The student needs responsibility and discipline to follow up and deliver the tasks.

Pros

What I like the most about Edmodo is that not only you can deliver easily homework and projects, but also finished an evaluation you can see an early grade about the test. Besides, facilitates the comunication wih teacher and students .

Cons

In my experience with the app, the notifications didnt appear when it was an update at the platform, or someone posted something new, personally I considered it necesary and important.

Pros

I've been using Edmodo as a student for almost 2 years already and it's the nicest platform for keeping up with my classes. It's intuitive to use, supports all type of documents, videos and presentations. The notification system is nice to the user. The program notifies you the day before your assignments are due. Very useful if you ever forget them.

Also, the program lets you save the class group even after its over (only if the teacher doesn't erase it).

I wish all my teachers would use Edmodo.

Cons

Sometimes the documents throw error when opening them in the web. That is something I've been experiencing throughout these years. In those cases I had to refresh the page several times or download them before opening them.

Other than that, you can't reply an image post with another image. Plus, I didn't like the last update for the phone app, but I guess it's just a matter of use. When it comes to the visual part, those bright colors aren't nice.

Pros

I like that teachers can post discussions and everything because it will make it easier for students to see things since pretty much all students nowadays are accustomed to the social media style (see a post, reactions, comments, etc). It's also fun to be able to create an avatar and there are games integrated into the software which make class much less boring, to say the least.

Cons

Sometimes the software can be a little bit hard to navigate, and you will forget which buttons go where - this can serve as a problem because when doing schoolwork you want to spend most of your brain work on the actual work rather than figuring out how to turn it in.

Pros

is a great application allows me to elaborate my class of next days and compile them with my students or colleagues, likewise has several tools to make their use easier and more comfortable.

Cons

I recommend using Edmodo especially for the multiple functions it offers, such as constant communication with your students and colleagues, calendar of activities where it informs you of events registered in this way, not to let anything happen, elaboration of classes and activities, it is very easy.

it helps both student and teachers to work efficiently.

Pros

It is not complicated to use because of its very simple and Facebook-like layouts and features. And for the teachers, they can post test or exams, quizzes and activities or even give notice to parents of the students. And they can monitor the students, because of its online grading feature. And the students can also easily communicate with their teachers regarding to school matters and others.

Cons

The only problem that I notice is when I use this software, is the need of improvement to support other languages.

dynamism, feedback, learning, continuous communication with my students, facilitates virtual distance education.

Pros

I am a university professor in the area of finance and management, I have about three years using edmodo as a virtual teaching platform and I found it extremely useful.
With edmodo I can structure all the content of the subject, as well as schedule exams and other virtual assessments for my students in bolivia, chile and venezuela.
students can access the platform at any time of the day and follow the schedule of distance classes
Likewise Edmodo evaluation tools automatically correct the quizzes carried out by the students according to the answers that I program. This undoubtedly facilitates the correction process, by totaling the grades of my students.
On the other hand Edmodo allows me to upload all kinds of files as well as link material of didactic interest for my virtual classes.

Cons

I am very satisfied and excited about Edmodo. I consider it an excellent educational platform. I use it daily with excellent results.
