Online Classroom Portals

Many courses at The YMCA Academy make use of online classroom portals to share daily work and resources and to provide an additional interaction and engagement opportunity for students.

Academy teachers make use of one of two different portals:

Edmodo

www.edmodo.com

Edmodo presents course materials and discussions in a format similar to social networks like Facebook. Students can use Edmodo to turn in assignments, save digital files for later retrieval, ask their teacher a question, and much more. Parents and guardians are also able to log in and access Edmodo; click here for details.

Wikispaces

www.wikispaces.com/

Wikispaces is an easy-to-use website that provides teachers with a fully customizable classroom portal. Students create an account and then subscribe to specific classroom wikis, which function in a manner similar to a traditional website.
