Private Mircoblogging with Edmodo

I recently stumbled upon the most fantastic micro-blogging website for teachers and students Called Edmodo.

Edmodo Sreenshot

Here is an excerpt of the post on the Edmodo blog:

What is Edmodo?
Edmodo is a private microblogging platform developed for use in the classroom by teachers and students. Edmodo provides teachers and students the ability to share notes, links, and files to foster communication inside and outside of the classroom. Teachers also have the ability to post alerts, assignments, and events to share with their students.

Who runs Edmodo?
Currently Edmodo is owned, operated, & funded by Jeff O’Hara & Nic Borg.  Jeff is a network administrator/webmaster for Community Unit School District 200 in Wheaton, Illinois. He also blogs at http://blog.zemote.com.  Nic is the webmaster/web developer for Kaneland Community Unit School District 302 in Maple Park, Illinois.
