    Hi everyone - just announcing a conclusion for the Subtext app on Edmodo, effective 6/30. Wanted to make sure everyone saw the message and please contact us if you have any questions. It's been a fantastic 2+ years here and we have enjoyed your ideas and feedback! Original post on Edmodo is here: https://www.edmodo.com/post/435136297

      The Subtext app is now gone from the Edmodo store. You can read the information above and below... and contact us with questions at subtext@renaissance.com. We thank you for your support! We hope to have our publisher page stay live - to continue to participate in the community here.

    Last fall, we announced that Subtext would become a premium-only app on July 1, 2015. We are working to finalize this transition and unfortunately the Subtext Edmodo app will be closed down effective 6/30/15.

    The Subtext Edmodo application was initially created to help Edmodo teachers log into Subtext iOS and sync their Edmodo groups and discussions from Subtext to Edmodo. Over time, we learned that Edmodo users really wanted a way to access all of the Subtext features via web browser, instead of using the Subtext app on the iPad and then monitoring activity separately on Edmodo. With the release of Accelerated Reader 360 in Fall 2014, we were able to provide a web-based instructional reading program.

    The Subtext iOS app is now also becoming part of Accelerated Reader 360 (which now includes an identical iOS app). AR 360 includes all of the Subtext features, which encourage collaboration between teachers and students in the classroom. However, it also has tools to help drive student growth through independent reading practice.

    If Edmodo was your only Subtext login, don’t worry, you can still save the work you’ve done in books and articles in the app. Just contact us after your AR 360/Subtext purchase is complete, and we’ll manually merge your old Edmodo account with your new account in AR 360. For more information on AR 360 or to order a subscription, please read our FAQ or contact us at subtext@renaissance.com or 800-338-4204.

    We have had two wonderful years on Edmodo, as one of the first mobile (and ELA) apps on the platform! The teachers, administrators and Edmodo employees working on the platform are truly inspiring. We have loved being part of the community and hope we can continue to be a part of your classroom.

    Hello! I am mentoring a student who is working on a independent study project. She has chosen to write a novel, and would love to have the novel published-- I'm talking 10-15 copies. Does anyone know of a vendor or program that would allow us to do this for free and/or cheap? I think it would add to her independent study experience and help her understand the publication process.Thanks!

    So after much trial and error I figured out how to get my students to see a book I shared with them, yet the multiple choice and free response question I put into the text are not showing on the students version of the book? Am I doing something wrong? This is really confusing!

    I added a PDF of mine to subtext on my iPad and it works OK. When I open Subtext on the web, I'm able to see that PDF in my library but am not able to read it or ask questions. Is that not a feature of the web app right now? If not, do you know if it will be? I see that if I add a document on the Web app through Subtext's search, I can read it and ask questions, but not those added as a PDF on the ipad?

      Hi there- you are correct. PDFs are not yet supported on the Web, just AR 360 and Subtext iOS products. You can search for any web article and import those, or use our collections. You can also bring in free or paid books from Google and Feedbooks.

      Thanks got it. I have another question

      1. I have a work Ipad and a home Ipad. I added a PDF and questions on the home iPad but when I login on my work iPad with the same login I get nothing - I mean I can't see the PDF or questions?

      Hi CF - can you email me what email address you are using to login? Are you logging in via Google or Edmodo? Are you sure you're using the same exact login for both? If you email us your account details we can look you up... you should see the same stuff regardless of device that you use. thanks!

    Why will there only be a PAID version of Subtext and not a limited FREE version of this tool? I read the statement posted on Subtext, but this was not clear. I'm assuming that the partnership with Renaissaince is not allowing for the free option.

      Hi Mrs. P - that's right. We are moving to be a premium app on iOS this summer (July 1). You'd have to buy through Renaissance at that point. You can read our blog post from the fall (we are trying to give teachers / schools a full year to plan) here: http://www.subtext.com/planning-for-premium

    I m trying to use subtext with a group. I just added the app to the group but when they go into the app, it does not show them in this group. I tried having them log out then back in to Edmodo. I was hoping to use with my reading class today. Please help.

      No - Even though they ARE in an ACTIVE edmodo group, I still had to have them join the SUBTEXt group as well. :(

      Thanks for the email, Sandy. I am working this out over email with you now. I sent you a note just now... hoping that fix works.

    When I try to download/install the subtext app on edmodo it is producing an error message. Is there something wrong on your end or mine?

      Hi Mrs Lane, we are seeing some failures coming from Edmodo at install. We are investigating this and will post here when we know more. Thank you for your patience.

    Either I'm an idiot or something is wrong. Is this FREE or not. I've practiced with this before with success using one of my "fake" Edmodo groups. Now I want to present how this can be used, but via the iPad app, I'm being asked to purchase additional licenses to use with the students in my Edmodo group. Confused.

      Hi Ms. Smith - Subtext on the iPad is a free app with premium features inside it. Those features cost $2.99/student/year. Subtext's Edmodo app is also free- and serves as a "connection" between your students/groups on Edmodo and your iPad. You can see the difference between the free and premium iPad features here: http://www.subtext.com/premium-features (Note: we recently announced that we are going fully premium on 7/1/15 but we wanted to give teachers more...

    Hello people of Subtext,

    I have installed Subtext on my iPad, downloaded the subtext app in my group on Edmodo and am having trouble with Subtext information showing up in my Edmodo feed. Any discussion questions, polls, etc do not end up in the feed after sharing (even though in the Subtext ipad app, under discussion, it says shared with that group). The only messages that are getting through are the group "send an update" messages. Thoughts?

      Hi Mr. Meyers- it sounds like you are on an older version of our iPad app. Now you can add either 'Comments' or you can 'Ask'. Comments share to Edmodo - but make sure you are checking the 'share on edmodo' box like this: http://www.subtext.com/newsite/wp-content/upl... Please let us know if you see this option when you click 'Comment', then choose a group to share to. We have tested this on several more...

Are you sure you want to remove the following Group?
