Edmodo Part 10: Go Mobile!

This post is the next in a series of posts to help schools and teachers that I work with get started with Edmodo.

Did you know you can access your Edmodo account from any mobile device? Edmodo's mobile app is a great way to stay on top all your Edmodo work while on the go. They have a version for iOS, Android, and Windows 8. This is great for 1:1 iPad classrooms or shared device environments.

Although the layout is optimized for touch screens, you can still perform all of your important Edmodo tasks right on the device. Teachers can:

  • Create and join Groups
  • Post to Groups
  • Check Notifications
  • Access Libraries
  • Track Progress
  • Set Alerts
  • Create Polls
Students will be able to perform most tasks as well. They can:
  • Post to groups
  • Turn in assignments
  • Take quizzes
  • Take Snapshots
  • Take polls
There are a few limitations for both teachers and students. For example, I could not edit my profile and you cannot award badges through the mobile app. I'm sure more features will be added during future updates.

You can find more detailed instructions about the mobile app in the Edmodo help files.
