We’ve made some updates to the BrainNook app on Edmodo! These new features make it easier for teachers to integrate assignments into their students’ Edmodo experience.
Notifications for your students when you set an assignment:
When you create an assignment through the BrainNook Edmodo app, your students will see a new post in their Edmodo stream. Here’s what your students will see in their stream when you give them an assignment:
They can click on the link in the news item to go directly into BrainNook and complete the assignment.
Worried that an assignment’s coming due and that some of your students haven’t gotten around to it yet? Go into the Track Assignments screen in your teacher account, and click on the Nudge button next to any open assignment.
This inserts a reminder into the news feed of those students who haven’t completed the assignment yet.
This is a great way to get more of your students attempting each assignment!
BrainNook badges viewable on Edmodo profiles:
Each time your students complete an assignment, their BrainNook badge gets pushed back to their Edmodo profile. So you can now see a single view of all the badges your students have earned, both directly on Edmodo and through BrainNook assignments!
Try the BrainNook app on Edmodo, and let us know what you think!
