The results also illustrate that students have positive attitudes toward the use of Edmodo in their courses. Recommendations for Practitioners: Adopting Edmodo within their teaching model. Recommendations for Researchers: More investigation on this topic with a larger number of participants is recommended. Impact on Society: This investigation provides society with better understanding of adopting Edmodo within higher education.
