Edmodo technology has been identified as a social media educational platform that can be used for remote learning between instructors and students. Many studies have been carried out separately to determine Edmodo technological impact, advantages or disadvantages and effectiveness. However, few studies focussed on the factors such as ease of use, usefulness and effectiveness of Edmodo technology together on instructors. The objective of the study is to investigate the ease of use, usefulness and effectiveness of using Edmodo technology by instructors for development of post-primary education in Nigeria. A convenience sampling method was used to select 30 instructors (12 males and 18 females) from six different post – primary education in Ibadan North, Oyo state, Nigeria and a structured questionnaire that included age, year of experience, educational qualification and three researched questions on perception of usefulness, easy to use and effectiveness of Edmodo technology was designed. A descriptive statistics and chi-square at 0.05 significant level were used to analysis the collated data. The result shows that 66.7% instructors’ aged between 25 and 35 years, 33.3% aged between 35 and 45 years, 33.3 and 66.7% had less than five and above five years’ experience, respectively while 23.3, 56.7 and 20% instructors had OND/NCE, B.Sc./B.Ed. and M.Sc./PhD, respectively. The chi-square result shows that Edmodo technology is useful, easy to use and effective tool for development of post-primary education in Nigeria. The use of Edmodo technology in post-primary education should be encouraged within instructors for educational development in Nigeria.
