Up until now, you’ve been building your app. It’s now time to create your app in Edmodo. You can create your app in Edmodo on the Dashboard page of your publisher account.

Below are requirements and best practices for creating your app in Edmodo.

A comprehensive app page to promote your app is valuable to your app’s success. Illustrate your app’s quality, content, and user experience using interactive demos, testimonials, and other engaging components to spark interest with potential customers. You will find suggestions and examples to help you create an effective, informational, and attractive app page in the Edmodo Store.

Remember to check your spelling and grammar!

App Title

Less is more! Opt for a simple, fun, and concise title. Use keywords that convey the focus of your app. There is a maximum of 300 characters for app titles. Do not include your company’s name in your app’s title.

User Access

You can make your app available to teachers; teachers and students; or teachers, students and parents.

  • Selecting “Group Owner & Co-Teachers” allows only the group owner and co-teacher(s) in the group to access your app.
  • Selecting “Group Members” (Teachers and Students) allows all members in the group access to your app.
  • Selecting “Parents” allows parent users to access your app (Parents are not members of a teacher’s class group on Edmodo).

Player Mode

Check the appropriate player mode for your app: single player, multiplayer, or simultaneous multiplayer experiences.

Instructions URL

Complete the Edmodo App Support form for each app you publish to the Edmodo Store. Edmodo will set up a unique page in the Edmodo Help Center to provide level one support for your users. The URL to your app page in the Edmodo Help Center will be entered into your app creation page by Edmodo.

If users’ questions cannot be answered with the information you provide, support cases will be elevated to your company’s support team. The Edmodo App Support Team will contact you via email using the support email address associated with your publisher account.

Description

This section should detail what your app does and how it works. To do this effectively:

  • Provide specifics on the subject matter and grade level(s) of your app’s audience.
  • Include a bullet list of your app’s features (e.g., games, quizzes, improvement tracking,
  • Edmodo assignment integration, assignment creation)
  • Include a list of clear learning objectives (if applicable)
  • Convey the availability of a premium version of your app in the description of your free version, where applicable. Clarify the differences between the free and paid versions and avoid using the same description for both versions.
  • Cite sources for any claims regarding the effectiveness of your app used in the description. Include testimonials from real users.
  • Create distinct descriptions and feature lists if your app is part of a series of related apps. Avoid using the same description across apps, as teachers need to understand the differences between each.

Meta Data Tags

This section should include any common keywords you think pertain to your app. These will not be visible on your app listing but will be included in our search algorithm. To list these effectively:

  • Think of common subject, grade, or standard related keywords that pertain to your app.
  • Only include keywords that relate; superfluous keywords are likely to cause teacher frustration.
  • Put your teacher hat on! How might teachers describe your app?

App Icon

Your app icon is the first thing users see when discovering your app in the Edmodo Store.

Be sure your app icon is:

  • Free of text  (e.g., app name or publisher name)
  • Relevant to the function and/or theme of your app.
  • Designed with the app’s targeted user group in mind (e.g., utility apps use simple, elegant icons; game apps with a younger audience have fun and friendly designs; apps designed for older students will have more sophisticated icons)
  • Created with versatility in mind. Consider designing two versions: a simplifed thumbnail version
  • and a full-sized version for display on your app page in the Edmodo Store.
App Icon Specifications:
  • Minimum pixel dimensions: 512 x 512
  • Maximum pixel dimensions: 1024 x 1024
  • Resolution: 72 ppi
  • Format: High-quality PNG; RGB; transparent

Screenshots

Include at least four screenshots that depict what users should expect from your app. Use effective and legible images that clearly illustrate your app’s features.

Screenshot Specifications:
  • Minimum of 4 screenshots required
  • Minimum pixel dimensions: 1280 x 800
  • Maximum pixel dimensions: 2880 x 1800
  • Resolution: 72 ppi
  • Format: High-quality JPEG/PNG; RGB; flattened; no transparency

Interactive or Video Demo Embed

Embed a demo so teachers can learn more about your app before purchasing it. Interactive demos are highly recommended. All media must be encrypted by SSL.

Subject Areas

Choose a maximum of two subject areas that best fit your app.

App Pricing

You can license your app as a paid app for a group, or as an unlimited license. Group licenses allow for 30 members to access the app, including the group owner. An unlimited license allows the app to be accessed by all of a teacher’s groups, regardless of size.

  • Cost (in US Dollars) per group and cost per single-user additional seat.
  • A group can contain a maximum of 30 users. Groups with more than 30 users require the teacher to purchase additional seats, which are a fraction of the original group price (either an additional group license or an additional seat).
  • Paid group and unlimited licenses are valid for 12 months from the original date of purchase.
  • Free apps are of the unlimited license type, and are valid for 12 months from original date of installation.

Teachers are notified when paid and free app licenses are about to expire and have the option to renew their licenses within Edmodo. Have strategic questions about pricing? Feel free to reach out to the apps team at apps@edmodo.com.
