We released a few new features just before many educators in the US took off for the Thanksgiving holiday. In case you missed it, following are some highlights of what’s new:
Teachers can now make comments and edits to student assignments. This is especially useful if you want to just add some quick comments to an assignment without downloading it.
Administrators can now invite all the parents in their school or district to Edmodo by exporting all of the parent codes for their subdomain. To access this feature, simply toggle to your admin view, navigate to the “Manage” page, and select “Export Parent Codes”.
We have added the ability for users to set the time zone in which they teach to ensure that assignments and quizzes that are turned in on time do not get marked late. To check your time zone, go to Account>Settings and select the appropriate time zone under your personal information.
The latest mobile app allows users to turn in assignments and gives teachers access to their full gradebook. Now students can complete assignments even if they do not have access to a computer and teachers can update grades from virtually any location. Now available on Android, and coming soon to iOS devices! (UPDATE: iOS version is now available).
