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.
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?

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.
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.
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.
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.

The important programs that have great uses and needs some development to improve the process of social communication.
Lincoln from Southern Cross Grammar
Employees number: 51-200 employees
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.
That it has the appearance of Facebook. This means that students will be used to using a program such as this.
That you can only upload 1GB of data. There are now advertisements popping up via Edmodo which I find inappropriate.
Matthew from Anne Arundel County Public Schools
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.

communication. very helpful with corresponding with others via technology.
difficult to set up, take awhile to master. takes practice to navigate web site and to be comfortable with.
for others to have paitience learning and to take time to learn program thoroughly
Melissa from University of Louisville
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.
Winnie from norwest
Specialty: Software / Technology
its a nice produce
It's easy to communicate and follows up pretty well.
Nothing I can think of as bad to say so there is none.
To be more specific for the questions and don't limit the feedback size.
Beth from Cristo Rey
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.
It seems to work well to communicate with older students but not for use with younger students. The parents of my students have not been receptive to using it as a communication tool either, but some
Gloria Inés from Gobernación del estado Miranda
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
The feature that I like most about this platform is that it is completely free and offers a very intuitive and friendly environment, which facilitates the learning of students in the different courses.
Most aspects and features of this software I like, work properly. The only thing I do not like is that it does not give you the option to see the users that are online.
Nidia Josefina from Liceo Bolivariano Ángel Noriega Perez
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.
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.
Not only allows a much easier communication with teachers, but an easy and effective way of delivering projects, furthermore, the app allows you to check at any time the tracing updates
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 .
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.
Benjamin from Broadwater Academy
Its Facebook for education. Can be used as a great tool to connect to students via a public forum. Great for reminders and homework assignments.
Any tool that allows for student commenting can be tricky. It is great to have commenting open but can be tricky with students responsibilty.
Sonia from Universidad Metropolitana (VE)

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.
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.
Zach from Chapman Middle School
Adding kids to my class was easy, and the kids could get in and take quizzes easily. The "social" aspect was good as well.
There were way too many times that the system would bug out and not allow kids to answer certain questions on quizzes.
Adelyn from Girls Who Code
Employees number: 11-50 employees
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.
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.
eduar from universidad pedagogica Libertador
simplifies the work since it allows to elaborate classes and activities that can be visualized by the students before the day of classes.
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.
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.
María from Universidad de Carabobo
Employees number: 1,001-5,000 employees
This software helped me to get better the comunication between my teacher and I, because she constantly was posting homeworks and learning tools for us in edmodo and It´s was a good platform to use
The teacher can share easily class content and learning tools for students and parents, to make a third-party comunication
The algorithm of the software it´s a little difficult to understand, search the informatiob its not that easy that it seems
it helps both student and teachers to work efficiently.
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.
The only problem that I notice is when I use this software, is the need of improvement to support other languages.
CARLOS from COENER.Centro de Orientación en Energía
dynamism, feedback, learning, continuous communication with my students, facilitates virtual distance education.
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.
I am very satisfied and excited about Edmodo. I consider it an excellent educational platform. I use it daily with excellent results.
Laura from FrugalForLuxury.com
Super easy to get in touch with teacher. Allowed me to leave notes for teacher throughout the day.
We loved Edmodo! Our kindergardener's teacher set it up for her class this year. It was a great tool to stay in touch and receive updates such as photos of field trips, reminders of homework and events etc.
I cannot think of anything I disliked about edmodo. We loved the tool and it is free to download and use!

Jhovanny from Plataforma de Telecomunicaciones PLATCOMM C.A.
The feasibility of making the deliveries of my assignments in the university to the teachers, is faster and easier for the help of the students.
The direction and management of sending an assignment to the teachers, which can evaluate the response once, also the communication that is shared in the group, I like the structure of the application is easy to manage and easy to register.
I do not like the mobile application because in it it is very complicated to see some things, and it is difficult for me to send documents or deliver tasks that the teachers assign me.
Daniel from OFG Services
I do all my online classes from this platform and it is really good and organize.
It is easy to use and keep control over the students and the activities. You can use it for communication, polling, quests, quizzes. Students can send teachers individual messages or materials. By using the calendar al
The mobile version is not as useful as the website version. Sometimes it is really slow and it is loading pages so late when I try to upload an assignment.
Angel from Hotel Italo, C.A.
I do my online courses with this software.
I like that I have in organize downloadable folders all the information of the virtual course. The activity calendar is good also.
It would be good to have a notification the day before a activity or a dead line as a reminder. Sometimes when I do the activities online it says error.
Mayerling from OFG Services C.A.
Digital education at the maximum power.
Thanks to this software, I can organize, plan and even create various educational courses. I can link them with groups of teachers, students and even parents and representatives. It is a revolutionary tool for education. You can carry out virtual practices, group interactions and exams and assessments on the courses taken.
It would be ideal to link the courses with other applications such as Google Class Room to maximize the potential of the students.
LINDOLFO from Pdvsa.Petroleos de Venezuela
In addition to my day job, I am a teacher in the modality of adult education (night) and I can say that this application allows me to be in constant communication with my students in a fast and efficient way, I believe group with the sections and I share files of information and I assign tasks, which I receive in this same way, being able to be up to date with my evaluations.
I consider is an application that gives any teacher a space to interact with students and colleagues, the only thing that does not allow you is to see who is available online
Saurabh from Resbird Technologies
Gives you a platform to create a school like environment,
You can have classes, quizzes, assignments, and assesments in one place for one particular group of people.
Option for grouping helps individuals to remain in one region and hence focus is maintained.
Integration with other LMSs is not there.
Drive integrations like google classrooms should also be added.
Darralann from VIPKID

It is a wonderful app.
I have used this software in the classroom with my students and they love it. I love it too because it is an easier way for me to effectively communicate with them. They enjoy talking through the computer a lot more than in person.
Sometimes the phone app is difficult to use. It would be beneficial to fix these issues because a lot of teachers don't have access to their computers at all times.
