See on Scoop.itApps for Education

“In a previous post from December http://ow.ly/mr5pa , I wrote about how I was (sadly) switching from Edmodo http://edmodo.com/ (my long-time LMS love) to Schoology. http://schoology.com/ ; Of the 25 schools I support, 33 classes of students are using a Learning Management System. Since my December revelation, 26 have switched to Schoology and the remainder stayed with Edmodo. I myself maintained both an Edmodo group and started a Schoology course for the twice-weekly after school Student Innovation Team I lead. This, combined with the 33 classes, was a great way for me to learn more about the differences between the two platforms. I’ve learned a lot, and wanted to share it with you! Below is a quick overview of what we’ve learned when it comes to Edmodo vs. Schoology.”
