About Schoology

Schoology is a cloud-based learning management solution specializing in curriculum management, course instruction and system-wide resource sharing and collaboration. Users can upload course content and assignments into the database to create their website, which is hosted by the vendor. From there, dynamic content creation tools and a rich text editor allows for the creation of content and lessons. HTML and CSS tools are also available to keep lessons as visually simple or complex as desired. From the website, each student’s profile can be viewed to gauge progress. Color-coded workload thresholds will show if any students are overloaded. With web-based and native apps for iOS, Android and Kindle devices, Schoology allows students and faculty to collaborate and learn from anywhere. From system-wide district announcements to messages with customizable roles and permissions, users can access only the tools they need. Other capabilities include third-party software integration, student performance tracking, a system-wide grading scale setup, audio and video recording and advanced analytics and reporting. Schoology is free to educators in K-12 public and private schools, colleges and universities worldwide. An enterprise version is also available, with pricing varying per implementation.

Integrated Learning Management System

Overall Schoology is going to allow for better implementation of curriculum as an online and hybrid option during this COVID19 pandemic.

Pros

Schoology integrates seemlessly into our district as we already use Powerschool so it will make it an easy transition for teachers into online learning.

Cons

The interface and mobile app could use a interface update to make it a little more friendly and easy to navigate.

Reasons for Switching to Schoology

Overall we ended up going with Schoology because of the Powerschool integration. When schools shut down it was a hard transition for many teachers, so we are hoping the familiarity with other products will make the use easier going forward.

Schoology Review

Pros

Schoology makes it easy to create, share and manage classroom activities.

This software is awesome for remote learning and has been a part of the education system even before online teaching/learning rose to prominence.

The platform has many great features, the assessment creation option as well as a calendar for keeping students updated are very practical tools.

The user interface is pretty easy to get a hang of and students find it very easy to navigate the space.

Cons

The platform itself does not have many flaws however the mobile version does tend to crash occasionally even during assessments.

Schoology Regular Usage Review

My overall experience with Schoology was satisfactory.

Pros

I honestly did not like this software, it does what it's supposed to do but just not to my capacity.

Cons

There are a lot of things I don't like about this app, they're all functionality and UI related though. The software gets what it's supposed to get done.

Wonderful Course Management Platform

My overall experience with Schoology has been fantastic, and I would definitely recommend it to other instructors who are willing to give it a try.

Pros

What I like most about Schoology is its ability to allow the instructor to compile all necessary course information into one easy-to-use online portal. Via this portal, I am able to create and post assignments, mark down due dates, grade the aforementioned assignments, among a plethora of other essential tasks, such as attendance tracking, progress report generation, and managing regrade requests. I am also able to communicate with students directly through the portal, which is great just in case the students want to keep their personal email addresses private. Lastly, customer service is very friendly, convenient, and helpful any time I need them, (which is infrequent, as the platform lives up to its expectations on a regular basis without any mishaps, which is fantastic, especially for efficiency's sake).

Cons

There is honestly very little that I dislike about Schoology, as it really does help me manage my classroom in an efficient manner, eliminating all of the hassle I was occasionally confronted with prior to my implementation of the platform, (the same applies to the students' perspectives on the matter, according to a mini-survey I provided them with). With all that being said, however, if I were to choose one aspect which could be further improved upon, it would be the performance of the app on both Apple and Android devices. I occasionally receive complaints from students pertaining to random crashes of the app, assignments not being able to be submitted, and various other technical issues. I must add that these issues are rare, but it would be nice if they could be eliminated in their entirety. Other than that, there is really not much else I can report as being a negative.
