Edmodo

Private, Secure, Web Sharing

Purpose

The purpose of using Edmodo is to allow students a safe and secure place to complete coursework using a common interface.


If you or your students use Facebook - using Edmodo is simple!

What is it that makes Edmodo class a secure environment ?


The following information is taken from Educators Technology and Mobile Learning.


Edmodo explicitly deals with school and teacher concerns about social networking for students in the following ways:

  • Each Edmodo class group is managed and controlled by the teacher
  • Students need an access code to join the class. If a student shares the code outside the class, the teacher can change it, without affecting students already joined in the group.
  • Students can only communicate to the whole class or to the teacher – private messages between students are not possible.
  • Anonymous posting is not possible.
  • Teachers can delete posts.
  • If schools upgrade (free) to the institutional features, the school can audit all teacher and student activity.
  • Parental access to their children’s posts and to the teacher is an optional feature.
