Free, fast, Facebook-like, and familiar to more and more teachers every day, Edmodo continues to grow in popularity.  During recent floods in a place as faraway as Bangkok, at least two schools facing temporary closure turned to Edmodo in order to continue teaching students--remotely--while unable to use the school facilities.
