Overview

Edmodo is a website that allow teachers to create online groups so that you can share ideas, files, posts, questions, and assignments. It is very similar in appearance to Facebook. The important difference is this is a safe, secure site that gives the teacher the ability to control members and monitor posts. Only those with the group code can see the students and posts. Students do not need an email address to join, do not share personal information, and choose from avatars for their profile picture.

Extra Credit

To create a group for your students click on Create on the left side, name your group and then share the code. Your students will need to create free accounts and use your code to join your class online. Edmodo has a polling feature you can use to ask your class questions. You can use the Assignment feature to guide your students in work. The Edmodo Help Center is a great resource for answering questions about the site and trying more complex actions like embedding videos and glogs.
