Edmodo ‘A private social platform for teachers and students to share ideas, files, events and assignments’ www.edmodo.com
Edmodo Teachers are able to set up classes and groups (for which Edmodo generates a unique alpha-numerical code) set and collect assignments, send alerts, link to online resources, attach documents and embed audio visual material. When students log on to Edmodo for the first time, they are prompted to enter the unique code generated for their class and thus both teacher and student accounts become linked and they can begin communication privately and safely.
