Edmodo is an all-in-one learning management system that empowers communications between teachers and students. The platform is extremely helpful, especially in the times of remote learning, where students and teachers need to be connected virtually to achieve their goals. Here's what Edmodo got to make it happen;
Edmodo is a complete suite to make a resourceful virtual classroom, that's helpful for teachers, students, and their parents. Mainly directed at teachers, Edmodo has a social networking section to let teachers know the current trends in learning, and get resources to form other teachers from around the world.
It's more of a repository for sharing learning materials and using them for development. Teachers can share, request, and comment on their peers' work from other schools from around the world. Also, it gives teachers a bunch of tools to keep their students, and themselves organized and work as per the plan.
These include a built-in agenda, pinning the assignments at the top and a shared class calendar to let everyone work according to the assignments, quizzes, and events. Regarding the classroom, Edmodo has built-in Zoom video conferencing tools to let teachers and students interact virtually. Also, the virtual room is streamlined with several options to engage in lessons, take doubts, conduct discussions, assessments, and fun class challenges.
Institutions taking up Edmodo can even customize their suite to the depth for both their staff (teachers) and students. These include creating custom sign-in pages and maintaining an online resource library. Also, teachers can communicate updates in real-time to both students and parents, in public at once or in personal chats.
Teachers can also get instant insights on how the learning process is progressing through their dashboard, which allows them to get feedback from students and also to ask them questions. At last, there's a grade book option to let teachers capture a student's performance and export grades, which can be seen by parents through a dedicated app.
The app also has bell notifications to remind students about their assignments on time, and a clear badge assigning to them once they submit their works. Also, teachers get to review these assignments easily, comment and edit them too.
