We currently use Moodle in our district. Mostly for discussion boards. I have just started to play with edmodo and feel it is far superior for many reasons including:
- Easier to create groups
- Easier way to collect and grade assignments
- A more modern feel
I am the tech coach here and have worked with teachers for a few years now on moodle. Many get frustrated by the lack of intuitiveness and students think its antiquated. The couple of teachers that I have shown Edmodo to have jumped in and loved it and so have the students.
The only downfall I see to edmodo is that students can post a lot of "junk". I know, I know, classroom management...but it is still a possible issue.
If you have experience in both, please leave me your thoughts. Thanks!
