Professional Development Communities
Edmodo wanted to expand its core use case of a free basic learning management system and classroom community tool into an educational community tool. They were bringing on new types of users to a loosely defined product area. Requiring us to update, redesign a part of the product that hadn’t been touched in 5 years.
Edmodo’s classroom has a single stream intending to allow educators to share announcements, tasks, and promote conversations. The stream became overwhelmingly a mix of announcements, assessments, assignments, and conversations. Making it difficult for both educators and learners to stay on top of what was happening in the classroom.
The goal of this project was to help Educators better organize and communicate important priorities and expectations to their learners in a asynchronous format. Additionally, we wanted to help Learners & Parents keep track and execute on the expectations educators have for them and their class. We expected this to increase assessment view and completion rates.
