Marketing & Distribution

Creating Distribution Pathways

Edmodo, considered Facebook for schools, announced at SXSW that they are opening up their API to third party developers to build and more importantly distribute their apps on this platform. There are more detailed write-ups from TechCrunch and HackEducation, and my favorite part is “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.” As Edmodo begins tackling the massive challenge of distribution into schools and is engaging educators in the process, are they on their way to becoming the OS for K12?
