Edmodo is like “Facebook” for schools. Unlike most installations of Moodle or Blackboard, Edmodo provides an incredibly intuitive and user friendly course management system. It is completely web-based, requires no installation, and is free to register.
The following is an excerpt from Edmodo’s About page:
“Edmodo provides a safe and easy way for your class to connect and collaborate, share content, and access homework, grades and school notices. Our goal is to help educators harness the power of social media to customize the classroom for each and every learner.”
Edmodo can be implemented at the classroom level, but is easily scalable to full district implementation.
