Edmodo today announced it will open its API to third–party and independent web developers to enable the creation of educational applications for the Edmodo platform. Apps created for the platform will be available to Edmodo's network of 6 million users, and teachers will be able to connect these apps to Edmodo features like badges, assignments, and quizzes.
The initial platform launch features over 35 partners that have developed apps leveraging Edmodo’s API.
Edmodo is also launching a Teacher-Developer Exchange to connect educators directly with application developers so that together they can create the apps most needed in today’s classrooms.
Interested developers should visit edmodo.com/platform for further information about participating in the program.
