Edmodo Part 12: Student Backpack

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

The Edmodo Backpack is a virtual storage space where students can store files and links. These resources can then be accessed from any web connected device. Students can add files and links from their Backpack to any note or assignment. Students have unlimited storage space, although there is a file size limit. Check out this Edmodo help video for a quick overview.

The Backpack is accessed from the backpack icon on the upper navigation bar.

  1. Any resources already added will appear in the main window.
  2. Click Add to Backpack for an upload dialog box (see below).
  3. Folders can be created to group resources.
  4. If students have a Google Drive account, they can connect to their Drive and access all their files and folders stored there.

Upload files

After clicking the Add to Backpack button the upload dialog box appears. Click the Files tab and follow the prompts to upload your file.

Click the Links tab and enter the URL of the website. It will automatically add the title of the website or you can change it to something that makes sense to you.

If you want to add a resource to a post, click the Backpack icon that appears at the bottom of the post.

You can find more detailed instructions on using the Student Backpack in the Edmodo help files
