I am in the process of evaluating Buddypress Courseware. This product is SO Awesome for the Educational Community! It basically allows you to run your own Edmodo using Buddypress. What is REALLY cool about this is that you also get ALL the wordpress/buddypress plugins for added features and customization that Edmodo doesn’t provide.
I am really torn as to which website to put the plugin on. I am thinking our teacher web portal is a good place to start, but it also may be beneficial to use the Engage website for teachers and students.
Buddypress Courseware allows teachers to create a group in buddypress and then setup a course where they can list assignments, discussion forums, and much more all from Buddypress and still have all the great web publishing tools that WordPress provides !
If you haven’t checked it out, please do so! You won’t be disappointed.
