The option of creating new courses by users,
Thanks to the SuperMemo application for iPhone users can define and create their own multimedia courses, based on the exercises of their own design. With your own courses you can study the materials you have created yourself, making use of the advantages of the SuperMemo method.
The course editor allows users to define various types of pages: the chapter and presentation pages, and also the question and answer, fill the gaps and multiple choice exercise pages. The editing process in itself is supported with many tools which simplify creating, editing and transferring exercises within the course structure. A user-made course is available only on the iPhone it has been defined for.
The SuperMemo courses support your learning efforts by creating your personal study plan for a given day. It includes the number of repetitions, the material you possibly need to revise and the new material.
The fast learning courses are based on the SuperMemo revising method. When you solve an exercise, the application checks if the answer is correct and, at the same time, shows the auto-grade buttons. Users can choose their own grade and the application calculates the date of the next revision using the abovementioned algorithm of repetitions.
A private social platform for teachers and students to share ideas, files, events and assignments.
Applications for Education Edmodo could be used for a wide variety of tasks and lessons. Creating anEdmodo group could be a handy way to remind students of assignments and tasks they need to complete. It could also be a forum for open discussion in an online course setting. In a one-to-one computing environment you could post a story starter and have each student add a sentence or paragraph to create a collaboratively written story.
The number one feature request we have received for Edmodo is an iPhone/iPod touch or mobile web app. This is something that has been on our agenda since we launched Edmodo. Tonight we would like to give everyone an early holiday present and announce the beta of the Edmodo Mobile Web Application at http://m.edmodo.com.

Travis Allen formed the iSchool Initiative after coming to the sober realization that we can’t wait for government and school board bureaucrats to bring technology into our classrooms. This non-profit organization began with the simple idea that Apple’s popular iPod Touch just might be a solution for cost effective technology in schools. After sharing his iSchool concept with Teachers, students and eventually the Principle of his high school, he realized this idea had tremendous potential to save schools money and at the same time dramatically reduce their carbon footprint on the environment.
