Edmodo is a free learning management system that is very popular and easy to use. Edmodo is a great resource for teachers, students, and parents, allowing communication, collaboration and sharing. It has forums, messages, files, calendar, and more to create an online presence for your class.
Edmodo recently released the Edmodo for Parents app for iOS and Android to allow parents to receive your important announcements and stay on top of classroom due dates. This allows parents to be more connected to the classroom and teacher, as well as being able to better help their children.
