Three Ways That Edmodo and Microsoft Will Save You Time (and the headache) This School Year!
Posted by: Meredith May
Microsoft’s productivity tools are a permanent fixture in classrooms everywhere. From customizing Powerpoint presentations to editing essays in Word, Microsoft’s best-in-class productivity tools make collaborative learning opportunities possible, which is why Edmodo has teamed up with Microsoft to offer integration features with Office 365.
Now I know what you’re thinking:
“Sure, Microsoft integration sounds great and all, but how will this improve classroom instruction for teachers like me?”
So rather than listing all of the cool integration functionality, I’ve decided to share three ways that YOU (yes, you) can save time with your favorite Microsoft productivity tools on Edmodo:
- You now have one password to rule them all. One password = one less headache especially when you’re logging in your entire class of students. Users with Office 365 accounts can seamlessly create and log into their Edmodo Accounts with their Microsoft credentials, which means that you no longer have to worry about remembering multiple passwords.
- A separate tab for your OneDrive is a thing of the past. No more clicking out of Edmodo to access your files. View your OneDrive items directly from your Edmodo Library and attach them to assignments and posts.
- You and your students can use Office Online tools for FREE in Edmodo! Teachers and students can open, create, and edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files in Edmodo for free by simply clicking the Office icon in their apps launcher. Whichever file you choose to create, it’s automatically saved to your Library where you can view and edit it anytime. Also, you can also access additional tools including Sway, OneNote, and Mix using their Office 365 account.
These unique out-of-the-box integrations for Edmodo bring your Office tools right into your online classroom. With Edmodo, you can communicate, collaborate, and share documents using the best of Office 365. Ready to get started?
