Late last night, we made some enhancements to Edmodo that will help you more effectively share, store and search for digital content relevant to your curriculum.
One of the key features in the release is The Backpack.
Located in the Student Library, the Backpack is a storage area that allows students to easily save content and materials they are working on at school so that it is readily accessible at home. By providing a separate space to store content they need immediately, they can locate what they need when they need it, without sifting through all of their files and folders.
Library Enhancements: Over the coming months, we’ll be making ongoing enhancements to the Library; changes that will be focused on providing more efficiency and personalized access to the content most relevant to you. The first of these updates include enhancements to your library files to provide greater segmentation between the files you share with others and those that are sent to you in posts.
The second library enhancement provides greater insight into how content is shared. A number next to each content item indicates the frequency with which educators and students are engaging with content; the higher the number, the more popular the resource is with your peers. Our goal with the Library Score is to provide new ways for you to quickly identify the content that other educators find most useful in the classroom.
In addition, we made some minor backend changes won’t change your user experience, but will enhance our ability to continue to enhance the site in coming months. Thanks for your patience as we worked through these updates — as always, we welcome your feedback:)
