Edmodo provides consistency in teaching subjects from year to year. We don’t have have books for my classes, so everything is teacher created or scavenged off the internet. As a result, things “disappear,” including saved documents.

 

The solution was to save and organize my documents are always in my Edmodo Library. I am finding that my classes are MUCH more consistent and I don’t lose documents.
