    Hey,
    What's happening with the security certificate? And where are we on the business model, I don't mind paying for the service like it was suggested over the summer

      I was wondering about the security issue as well.

    Two out of my almost 200 students using the paid Edmodo Zondle app are being asked to give a class code...I look but cannot find any code to give them. Can anyone help me, please? Thank you!

      It sounds like they haven't joined an Edmodo group yet. If that is the case, they will need to join your class group, and you will need to give them class code for that group. When you are in the correct group folder, look in the upper right hand corner. It will say Group Code: (code), or it will say Group Code; LOCKED. If it is locked click on Group Settings just below and click on the lock icon; it will generate a new code.

    They said we would be able to renew but something isn't working now.... any idea when they might get things back up and running? Ben says he is working on it.

    Help! My zondle license on Edmodo expires today. Will I be able to renew?

      I would email Ben Barton at ben.barton@zondle.com It looked like they were going to close but were getting pledges from people who were willing to pay. Not sure what the status is but I'm guessing you'd get an email back if you inquire!

    If I purchase a Zondle account here, will I be able to manage it by logging into my existing Zondle account online straight through their own portal?

      I got an email saying that they were shutting down. Not sure if that happened.

      The zondle app for edmodo will be a separate account from your free zondle account. You could share your resources on your free account with the zondle for edmodo account. I know that free zondle is about to close down, but I'm not sure about the status of the edmodo app.

    Any word on the status of zondle? Did you get enough potential subscribers?

      Fantastic news! Thank you so much, zondle staff, for working so hard to keep zondle going for teachers and students. I am so relieved and excited that my students will get to keep learning with zondle!

    I have also been trying to contact Ben and have received those messages. Does all of that go for the zondle app through edmodo? Will we not be able to pay the $25 to use it through edmodo either?

    Here's the response I got from Ben:
    Dear zondler,

    We have had an amazing response to the announcement of zondle's impending closure and some really kind words from our users.

    We have been shocked by the numbers of teachers who have expressed a willingness to pay to keep the site open and so I am emailing everyone again to see whether this is a real possibility.

    A possibility?
    I have been asked by the shareholders to prepare a fully-costed business plan to see whether we can build a sustainable business out of zondle going forward.
    Most teachers suggested they would be willing to pay a monthly (or yearly) teacher’s subscription that will give each teacher (and all their students) access to zondle as it currently exists. The price would be $8 per month or $80 for a whole year.

    Zondle’s costs
    Zondle needs about $7500 per month to keep going and supported, and a further $3500 per month to ensure we can keep developing great new features throughout the year.
    This means that we need about 1500 teachers to contribute $8 per month to keep our doors open.

    Please help!
    To help to make this happen can you please answer the three questions on this survey: http://xgiu.mj.am/link/xgiu/klm0x1h/2/hqJ2XNC...
    Please also share this survey with other teachers who use zondle.

    Thanks again so much for all your wishes and support, I really appreciate it.

    I will update all our users at the end of this week.

    With best wishes

    Ben

      Ben, i can't afford much, but I would pay!

      Paying would be out of my pocket but I'd do it if it was reasonable. Zondle completely aligns with my philosophy- fun, brain-based, real learning :)

    • Mrs. Corey-Blew
      Mrs. Corey-Blew said Jul 17, 2015

      I would be happy to pay! I have so many topics I have created and want to keep using them. Zondle is exactly what Ms. King said: fun, brain-based, real learning. We need it!
