ABSTRACT
This study aimed to investigate teachers’ views about the effectiveness of users of Edmodo Content Management Systems in secondary education. Teachers from Near East College in Fall of 2016-2017 academic year participated in this study. Methodologically, qualitative research was carried out with open-ended interview questions prepared for the participants. Teachers’ views were reached through the analysis of the data. The analysis results showed that the teachers already knew about Edmodo Content-Management System, but they were ineffective in practising it. Therefore, the findings reflected the need for educating the teachers in the system.
