Practical online course. Useful introduction to Edmodo.

Collaborative Learning with Edmodo - A Short Course
by Jenna Azzopardi on 07/12/2015

The course was set out well and informative. It focused around using Edmodo in the classroom. However, the course is more so targeted for absolute beginners of Edmodo. I had already created groups previously and knew these steps. The creation of quizzes and Edmodo’s other uses in the classroom could be greater.

by Murray Fletcher on 16/10/2015

This course was great for beginners of Edmodo. It provided basic details as well as more complex ways in which you can provide an ICT platform to contact, grade as well as communicate with students. I have been using Edmodo for a year and this course was still valuable to provide me with many ideas to incorporate a library of information for my students to use as resources.

Very informative course. I learnt the basics of how to set up an Edmodo account and feel much more confident to explore it’s possibilities.

Collaborative Learning with Edmodo - A Short Course
by Scott Sampson on 18/06/2015

I found this course to be very informative and well structured. It would be most useful for a teacher who has never used Edmodo before, as it allows for a very structured and paced approach to setting up, and managing a class using Edmodo. This course is one of the better online courses I have completed.

I already knew quite a bit about Edmodo but there were a few new bits of information that I learnt.

I was pleased with what I learned about Edmodo and feel I have enough knowledge and sufficient skills now to implement it for my classes.

The course gave me the opportunity to put into practise some of the different aspects of Edmodo that I can now use with my class. It opened up new aspects of the program and I have been able to share some of these with other teachers at my school.

I found the course to be very helpful. I enjoyed reading the input from other participants and the experiences they had with Edmodo. I felt I could ask the instructor of the group any question, but the instructions were clear anyway and easy to follow. It helped that I had already used Edmodo in my classroom. I would recommend this course for those beginning to use it or thinking about it.

The course is very informative about Edmodo. The sets are easily understood and helpful with the use of Edmodo. The Collaborative Edmodo space is great to discuss with other teachers their thoughts and views.

This was a great course to complete. I really enjoyed being able to see how other teachers use Edmodo in their classrooms. It was great to collaborate with teacher outside my own school environment.

This course offered resources and practical instructions which enabled me to establish my own classes on Edmodo. The collaborative online environment meant that I could learn from other teachers and the expertise of the presenter.

The course facilitates a range of participant knowledge of Edmodo whether beginning or already using. Plenty of opportunity to learn from others as well as course facilitator.

Learned a lot of practical applications for using Edmodo in the classroom.

Collaborative Learning with Edmodo - A Short Course
by Sherill Townsend on 02/10/2014

I found the course both informative and practical in term of expectations, especially for the classroom. I was expected to think about my classess and the way in which I could enhance my students learning through greater collaboration, both with the course content and with me, as a teacher. Lucy’s comments, suggestions and notes made the learning experience very interactive and practical.

I have since become an Edmodo convert, having initially been a sceptic. I am encouraging my colleagues to do the course and to use Edmodo as part of their virtual classroom experience.
