Edmodo is a great free alternative for teachers, schools and districts who do not have the resources to host and administer their own Learning Management System. Edmodo provides a way for teachers and students to extend their teaching and learning activities outside of the classroom.


With the communication tools in the system, students can work together on projects remotely. The storage capacity of the system allows teachers to store materials online for student access. Teachers can post assignments and grades, and quizzes can be given. Teachers have the option for form multiple groups for different classes. There are optional apps which can be integrated into Edmodo groups. Some of these apps are free while others must be purchased. There is also an event planner for groups. and an option to allow parental access to groups.


There is a premium version of Edmodo available for those who wish to upgrade.
