Goodbye Sticky Notes!
We are introducing a better way to keep track of new activities in your Edmodo classroom so you never miss out on on upcoming events, new replies to posts, alerts, and direct posts. You no longer need a sticky note to keep track of your notifications. The bell icon on the top toolbar tells you the number of categories of activities, click on it and you can see a list of these activities. Soon you will have a running history your notifications so you can track activity through time. Cool, huh? We thought so too!
Enhanced Group Pages
Click on any of our groups and you will find yourself in the enhanced group pages where you easily manage your small groups, posts, folders, and group members. You can now create and edit small groups from here and toggle easily between the small and main group.
We also have some very special news for our international users!
Edmodo is excited to make its amazing selection of free apps available to educators all over the world. No matter your location, you can now discover a wide range of free modular, curated apps designed to enrich your lesson plans.
So are we! We can’t wait to welcome you to the new Edmodo. We hope you enjoy using all the new features as much as we enjoyed building them.
