Sign-up and Sign-in to WeLearnedIt Through Edmodo

WeLearnedIt is a free iPad app through which you and your students can create digital portfolios.Today, WeLearnedIt announced an update that allows you to use Edmodo Connect to sign-up and sign-in. This means that as a teacher you can import your existing Edmodo classes and student lists into WeLearnedIt. Once you're signed-up to use WeLearnedIt you and your students can create digital portfolios that contain files from Google Drive, Dropbox, links from the web, images and videos captured with your iPad, and whiteboard videos created within the WeLearnedIt app.

Applications for Education
The best aspects of WeLearnedIt are found in the feedback and sharing tools. Teachers can assign grades to elements of students’ digital portfolios. Grading is not limited to assigning scores. Teachers can give written feedback on each submission. Rubrics for assignments are available through the app too. School-wide implementations (a fee-based option) of WeLearnedIt allow teachers and administrators to share assessment data.
