What is Edmodo?
Edmodo is an educational website that takes the ideas of a social network and refines them and makes it appropriate for a classroom. Using Edmodo, students and teachers can reach out to one another which provides great help and feedback throughout the year at NBI. A teacher can assign and grade work on Edmodo; students can also get help from the entire class on Edmodo. The teacher is able to see everything that is posted on Edmodo, allowing for a safe online environment. Also, parents can join the class to bring a level of transparency that is difficult to achieve without technology. All in all Edmodo is a great companion for all your classes at Nicolet Bible Institute!

Your Virtual backpack
Edmodo offers a feature to store all your class material, from your Apologetic notes to your Theology exams, you can store it in your backpack on Edmodo. This is a great feature that'll keep you organized so you know where your class material and homework are. Although this is a very handy feature it isn't required that you use it. If you wish, you may use your own computer storage to store and oraganize all your class material and homework.
Edmodo for Parents
Edmodo offers a login for parents allowing them to see their child's grades and see what they are posting in class. Parent's do not have the ability to see everything that is being posted in class and are limited to seeing just their child's content in each class. Each student is assigned a parent code, if you wish to check in on your child while they're at Nicolet Bible Institute ask your child for that code and we will assist them in sending you that code. To setup your account click the button below and click the "I'm a Parent" button inside the blue column on the left-hand side of the Edmodo website. If you have any questions, please utilize the video in this section that goes over setting up and using Edmodo as a parent. If you have any further questions, please contact Dylan Packard at email@example.com.
