How I Use It
I use this daily with my in class students and my distance learning students. All assignments, discussions, files, links, quizzes, tests are posted to this site for easy access by the students. It also allows for a quick way to communicate with me. I only use the free version and it works great.
I like the ease of use for myself and the students. It is set up similar to Facebook so it does not take a lot of time for students to become familiar with the program or find information. The free version does everything I need for my classroom. There are a few perks like syncing with gradebook in the paid version.
