The edmodo app is a great way to communicate in the classroom and for students to be caught up to new material when they are absent. However, my main issue with the app is: A planner/calendar. Before the update, students could easily access the "planner" function, which is currently missing from the app, on the assignments tab. It is inefficient and time consuming for students to have to access the actual website (by re-logging in) everytime they wish to access the calendar. Some of my teachers post frequently on the calendar, but because for some reason, they are not listed as an "assignment," and therefore do not show up unless I check the actual website. The app also takes a long time to load (but it could just be my slow wifi) and crashes frequently.
I think edmodo is very good using however I do think it could be improved. You know how on a text messaging app where if someone texts you something, an alarm on your phone goes off immediately? I do think edmodo could like ring a bell or make an alarm go off on my phone when a post goes up from a teacher to let me know exactly when something is posted. I mention this because one time my choir teacher put up a short-notice post that we were practicing our Christmas carols in the band room and I didn’t know about it and I missed that rehearsal. I think if edmodo made an alarm go off on my phone I would know about that rehearsal right away. I would also like if you could turn the alarm on and off and you could choose a type of alarm as well.
I’ve used this app on many devices for 5 years and the push notifications never seem to work. They did for a little while last year, but no more. My students send me messages that I never see unless I actually open the app. I (only sometimes) get SMS messages because I entered my phone number into the Edmodo website, but the app’s push notifications are completely unreliable. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app many times on different iPhones and iPads and made sure all notifications settings in the phone and in the app or “on”. It just doesn’t work.
But anytime I want to access one of my classmates profiles it doesn’t load properly but it works on the computer which is very annoying! Please fix this if you did then it would be five stars! This app is useful if you are absent or miss a class you can catch up on new homework and class work if your teacher posts it. I hope this was a helpful review and that you please try to fix that problem. I have never been able to open profiles but I don’t know if it’s just my device or if anyone else is having that same problem. But I’d love it if I could access them.
Mostly good, and I can contact my teacher if anything is wrong or confusing on the homework, but there are some problems. Sometimes when I'm trying to do something on this app, it kicks me off randomly for no reason. It also doesn't load the video or attachments, so that I can be frustrating. And whenever I try to look at my classmates picture or stuff on the little 🚹 like sign, it always says error, and then pulls up some teacher's info. He's not even a person at my school! Please try to fix these problems.
