As announced earlier this week, we wanted to share with you the news that we are opening the Edmodo platform to allow third-party publishers and developers to create educational apps that integrate directly with Edmodo. Apps built for the Edmodo platform will be available to teachers across the US for the 2012-2013 school year.
On Thursday, Edmodo CEO Nic Borg addressed the crowd at the closing of SxSWEdu in Austin to share some of the details of the Edmodo platform.
To aid developers in building the best apps that meet the needs of educators around the globe, we’ll also be launching a Teacher-Developer exchange. The site will be a place where educators can connect directly with content developers, to help foster more rapid innovation in k12 content development. More details about the launch of the Teacher-Developer exchange will be available in the coming months.
If you are a developer or publisher, you can sign up to learn more about the Edmodo Developer Program at www.edmodo.com/developers.
