Tips

  • If you want to be able to view your students video in Pages, then you should use Google Drive as your work flow option instead of Edmodo.
  • Sometimes the pop-up screen of choices does not show up when you "open in another app" from Pages to Edmodo. It takes a few tries, so if it does not show up automatically, start over and it should show up.
  • When a student is opening the attachment from Edmodo, instruct them to have patience. Sometimes it takes a few seconds to get the menu options to appear.
