  8. 8. FEATURES OF EDMODO
  9. 9. FEATURES OF SCHOOLOGY
  10. 10. RECOMMENDATIONS When I first started this research I really liked the easiness and use of Edmodo. It is very much like Facebook and is very easy to use and understand. The technology requirements are lower and the software is free. After doing the research and even though you would need to pay for extra features, it seems that Schoology has more to offer. They seem to have more that teachers can do and access. Both are great software programs and both would work for any classroom. Both offer good customer support and both allow you to collaborate with other classrooms around the world. They both take learning from the classroom and keep students engaged beyond the school day.
