If you're using a learning management system inside your classroo. The likelihood is, is that that learning management system will have an IOS Application that goes with it. Some popular learning management systems that have accompanying applications are Desire2Learn, Edmodo, Canvas, and even Schoology. One of my favorite learning management systems, with the accompanying IOS App, is Edmodo.com. Edmodo's free to use, and fairly easy to navigate. Here I have the Edmodo app brought up, and I'm going to go ahead and log into my Edmodo account. Once you've logged in the first time, you'll always have access to your Edmodo account simply by clicking on your Name from the Home screen.

One of my favorite learning management systems, with the accompanying IOS App, is Edmodo.com. Edmodo's free to use, and fairly easy to navigate. Here I have the Edmodo app brought up, and I'm going to go ahead and log into my Edmodo account. Once you've logged in the first time, you'll always have access to your Edmodo account simply by clicking on your Name from the Home screen.

Here, all I have to do is reenter my password, and I have complete control over my Edmodo account. Right away, on the right hand side, I can continue to read Posts to any of the groups that I'm following. I can also go into the Group Management of my classes. I can view Progress, and I can even access documents I have in the Library. From the Teacher Profile, I can track Teacher Badges that I've earned. And under the Post section, I can continue to interact with my students. Under the Post section, if I touch the plus sign in the upper right hand corner, I now have the ability to create a new Note, Alert, Poll, or Assignment. So for example, let's say that you were stuck in traffic on your way to a night class.

You could simply send a note to all of your students that say I'm running late, I'll be there soon. Every student that's using the accompanying IOS App would automatically have that note show up as a notification on their iPad or iPhone. You can also create elements of the class from your iPad. For example, I could touch the Assignment section and I could go through and start creating a new assignment. I'll make this Research Paper due the 26th of August. Now I'll click the next button. So here I can choose Recipients I'm going to go and set it to my 7th grade Life Science class.

And then I can go ahead and enter a message that goes with this Assignment. Please upload your paper. Once I think everything's ready to go, I can click the send button. And every recipient within the Life Science class will receive the assignment, straight to their IOS Application. As well as they can see it when they login online. If you are currently not using a learning management system, I recommend checking out Edmodo as it's free and fairly easy to use. Also the IOS App makes it very easy to communicate and stay up to date on what's happening in your class even when you're on the go.
