Last night’s system upgrade included a few new exciting features including:
- Student profiles: Get more insight into each of your students through new student profiles! Students profiles allow you to view that student’s teachers, groups, classmates and recent activity. This information is automatically generated based on their Edmodo activity, but the student can also share a little bit about themselves by selecting their learning style and career goal. The ability to select a favorite quote is on the way!
- Badges: The new student profiles also include badges. These new badges enable you to incentivize your students and provide recognition for their achievements. To award a badge, visit the profile of the student you’d like to award and select the “award badge” button at the top of their profile page. A panel will open up that will allow you to create a badge, or select from a list of Edmodo created badges.
- Assignment Filtering: New filtering will help you and your students organize and find assignments. Simply filter your post by assignments (from the left navigation) and you will then see the ability to sort by those that are “coming due”, or “most recently posted” at the top of your stream.
