      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.

      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.

    This is great for having class discussions that you want to be private, so that you as the teacher can facilitate the conversation.

    I would use this community tool for cooperative learning activities. The value of other perspectives from different backgrounds is paramount as students collaborate on a given topic.
