Edmodo vs schoology

  • Most of the CONS for Edmodo are actually incorrect or partially incorrect.
    Students have parent access code but so do schools / teachers if using a PC and teacher access code.
    Attendance is achievable through Edmodo Apps, that is class room management apps, some of which are freely available.
    Parents can communicate but only directly to the teacher and not to the class group. This is a major plus if you have an unbalanced or an argumentative parent.
    Facebook layout is EXCELLENT for student engagement, as students already know how to use it.

    Also the positives you have for Schoology, every single one of them are a part of Edmodo too. Consequently Schoology does not even rate in comparison to Edmodo. Some may claim that Edmodo is not user friendly.... I would suggest the if you know how to use Facebook, you know how to use Edmodo...
