Edmodo Makes the Move from Social Network to Education Platform

Edmodo Makes the Move from Social Network to Education Platform | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

By Audrey Watters

 

Edmodo hopes to make the move from "app" to "platform," with the opening today of its API to third-party Web developers.

 

At launch, Edmodo boasts some 35 partners who have already developed apps for the new platform -- these include Mathalicious, Late Nite Labs, Desmos, BrainNook, Aviary and (30) others. Using the Edmodo API, these companies can now connect their own apps to the Edmodo social network, meaning that they can tap into Edmodo's badge functionality, feeds, assignments, grade book and so on. These apps are integrated with Edmodo, in terms of single sign-on, analytics, and -- and this is key for both Edmodo users and app developers -- roles (that is, who's a teacher, who's a student, what grade is the student, who's a parent, who's a principal and so on).

Study after study has confirmed the benefits of networking.  Besides the ubiquity factor, so much of social networking is free. It’s easy to forget how amazing that is. There are only two premium products that I would recommend, and those are Jing and Animoto. Both are about 25 dollars a year, but what they bring to you is impressive. More on both of those shortly.
