  • 10. Comparison Edmodo Advantages Organized help sections Accessing grades anywhere on the site Reward badges to students Built-in calendars Straight-forward and user-friendly Step-by-step help for new users Students see groups and can connect Access codes for parent tracking Direct parent-teacher communication
  • 11. Comparison Edmodo Disadvantages Few features and resources Students give their parents the access codes Doesn't seem professional Limited features for student activities No attendance Limited options for creating quizzes Difficulty trying to connect with teachers within the school
  • 12. Comparison Schoology Advantages Attendance records Easier to delete accounts Ability to post comments/documents when providing feedback Time limit options Updates Templates for classes Google compatible: conference/edit with students and collaborative work
  • 13. Comparison Schoology Advantages Direct contact with teachers Album/galleries of pictures More parts - a bigger learning system Blogging/class discussions Easier to add clubs and groups Students see multiple classes/groups/messages in one place from multiple teachers Ability to create multiple courses and folders
  • 14. Comparison Schoology Disadvantages Help section requires using a search box Grades accessed only through home page Learning styles and preferences not included when creating student profiles Having to import Calendars Codes for students are too long Hard to navigate quiz and attendance pages Requires too much time to learn the system, frustrating More sophisticated and challenging than Edmodo Cannot monitor student messaging
  • 15. Conclusions? There are good alternatives to Facebook Students will use them Teachers are more in control and 'protected' Admin features seldom mesh well with school admin systems
