I had students go to their Edmodo accounts (if they had one) or register with Edmodo and then sign up for my class. They seem to like the Facebook look to the page and some have experience with it with other teachers and like it. I always post what we are doing in class on my Smartboard but it is hard for students to retrieve if they are absent. This is a way to keep them connected and I don’t have to remember exactly what we did. I have set one up for each of my three courses.
