By Guest Author | July 14th, 2017 | No Comments

Every year, millions of teachers use Edmodo as the core communications platform for their school community. Why? The benefits are clear: It’s easy to keep students engaged, involve parents, and connect with their peers across the district or the globe.

This school year, we’ve got a ton of brand new features and updates for you, and we’re beyond excited to share them all. We’ll have more news in the coming weeks, but here’s a sneak peak into what’s on the way (and what’s already here)!

The best classroom communications tool to use with Google or Microsoft

The easiest, most powerful assignment workflow for Teachers AND Students

  • Get the complete picture into classwork with a whole new Assignment Center.
  • See which students have viewed assignments with Read Receipts.
  • Grade faster with an all-new Office Online grading sidebar.
  • Set up new grading periods in one click in our new Progress Book.
  • No lost work for students with automatically-saved drafts as they work.

Introducing Messaging!

  • New direct messaging to chat with students, parents and other teachers.
  • The quickest, easiest way to message a single person or small group on Edmodo.
  • Messaging is separated from your class posts so you can easily send, find, or respond to direct messages.
  • Access all your messages on mobile and desktop, with message history synced to your account.

And, that’s just the beginning. Stay tuned… we’ve got even more exciting capabilities to announce in the next few weeks that will make your students more engaged, your parents more involved, and your connections with other teachers closer.
