How I Use It
I flipped my classroom and this is the resource the students used to get the content information before coming to class to discuss. The students found this easy to use and to navigate the site. I could organize my content into groups and have a single site for students to receive and submit work. The biggest challenge I had was overcoming the 100mb limit for uploading files. I had to post some videos on an alternate site or splice my videos into small file sizes.
My Take
I used Edmodo since I did not have my own classroom website. This was a great tool to provide additional resources to my students and to have class discussions outside of class. Students can submit assignments and take quizzes within this tool.
