Schoology Software


 

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.

I am overall happy with it and glad that it exists!

Pros

You can use schoology to keep tabs on grades, homework assignments, upcoming events, conferences, test results, you name it. That is very helpful.

Cons

The interface is hard to navigate and it seems like each thing you are looking for is not in the place that you would expect. Once you get used to navigating through the buttons and menus, this isn't an issue, but there is definitely a learning curve.

I use this in my clinic to inform parents of upcoming groups, talks, support, etc. It is so convenient to use and the parents love it too! I prefer this over simple email as it is much more effective getting parent's attention to what we are offering than email.

Cons

I don't use this as a teacher would. I am not seeing anything that is wrong with the system at this point. It's just so simple to use.

I like this product for smaller schools. It is easy to use and manage for K-12 teachers especially. Students seem to catch on quite quickly as it is fairly intuitive.

Cons

Once you get the product up and running I don't think I particularly have any cons. There are some work around that you have to do when it comes to recurring assignments but that is manageable.

Schoology - K-12 Winner, Not So Much for Higher Ed

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Schoology is an excellent platform for blended learning or situations where online learning is supplemental to face-to-face learning. For higher education, or fully online learning, it has a long way to go to catch up with the industry leaders.

Pros

Schoology is easy to use, provides an intuitive interface, and leverages the benefits of social media. As an Enterprise user, I have access to the full suite of analytics and universal settings, which are powerful. The mobile apps are feature-rich as well.

Cons

Schoology is not the ideal platform for higher education. The interface, while easy to navigate, is juvenile in its icons and profile images. And while it features a social media "wall" of recent activity across one's courses, the interface looks like an old Facebook. Also, Schoology's font, which cannot be altered, even by Enterprise users, is too small. This raises ADA compatibility concerns.

Pros

Schoology is one of the best learning management systems (LMS) out there. Schoology's LMS can be used at the K-12 level, the higher ed level, and in corporate learning as well. Their support teams are very engaging and they share the mission of successful implementation and effective learning.

Cons

Sometimes new features need to be introduced to solve client related issues. While the feature requests are happily accepted, it can take a fair amount of time for the actual development and resulting release of that code.

*The LMS is appropriate to use for K-12 students.
*It was easy for me to use Schoology to administer quizzes and tests to my fourth grade students.

Cons

(Warning: The last time I used Schoology was in 2016. I have since switched careers. They may have upgraded features since then.)
*The email functionality was terrible. Our school administrator told us we were supposed to use Schoology for all email communication, but none of the teachers did because it was a huge was of time and effort. We stuck with our Gmail account.
*Using Schoology to store grades was also a nightmare as well. We had to use to other programs besides Schoology in order to administer our report cards.

Schoology - Empowering Blended Learning

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Schoology has transformed my own teaching and assessment strategies, and I have seen it greatly impact the classrooms of my colleagues. It remains one of my top recommendations for any educators across the educational technology spectrum.

Pros

Schoology's greatest asset is its ease of use. When my institution adopted Schoology as the LMS (to replace a previous, more complicated LMS), we saw a 2/3 increase in active users, effectively transforming our classrooms. Schoology excels at communication (to your entire course, co-workers, or individual students) compared to other learning management systems. Additionally, schoology is an LMS visibly built around a learning centered classroom, unlike the obvious content-centered approach favored by prominent, older learning management systems.

Cons

Schoology's ease of use does mean some loss of complicated features. At first glance, schoology has a smaller feature set than some LMS's. However, if you are willing to be creative, the platform engages very cleanly with third party tools to accomplish any functionality that may have been lost.

Schoology is a blessing for being able to communicate with my classes. I can easily post updates for my students, tell them when things are due, and message them one-on-one (and they can message me if they will be absent or need something). The gradebook is easy to manage and you can even create tests.

Cons

Data analysis could be stronger, especially in a climate when administration is pushing for data-driven teaching.

Schoology works best for a whole school setting where different ability levels of instructors and learners will be accessing the platform. Especially suited to an establishment which intends to develop a blended learning and learning self-paced learning approach outside of the classroom. A school which confidently uses mobile apps and digital technologies will find Schoology a healthy addition to their collection of digital tools.

Pros

+A huge community of teachers and learners looking to sharing their experience and support one another in the usage of the platform.
+A recognisable user interface which makes the learning curve for new users simple and intuitive.
+Superb flexibility to create bespoke learning environments for teachers and learners.

Cons

- Some limitation of iframe embed due to the HTTPS protocol requirement. Use of HTML code editor often strips the inclusion of more advanced features such as Java functions.
- Limitation toe badge and gamification of learning.
- LTI integration not fully functional, relying on apps developers to plug the gaps.

Students and teachers love Schoology. It is a one stop shop for teaching and sharing resources among teachers. In addition, teachers can save their courses and set up templates for the next year.

Pros

Schoology is a great one stop shop for the facilitation of the digital classroom. A great part is that teachers can also share resources and reach out to Schoology through social media for quick support. The Schoology community is very strong in the public groups for additional help when needed.

Cons

I wish there was an automation of badge delivery based on assignment/test score to provide students with badges in an easier way.

As a student, this is a very well thought tool for us to have an overview of how we are doing in a course as well as material but also evaluation is there! and as I said I think for teachers this is also very time saving, as opposed to other tools where not even the home dashboard makes sense and you need 100 clicks to find something

Pros

I used it as a student and it is so much user friendly that the tool we used to have. Also, I have friends teaching who used ir and have shown me the "admin" side of it and it really makes their lives easier!

I use it at least once a week for quick check quizzes for reading comprehension. It allows me to provide instant feedback to my students. Instead of having to grade multiple choice quizzes by hand or through a scan-tron, they are immediately scored.

Pros

The ease of use of the system is a welcome break after attempting to use other programs such as Illuminate, which was not what I would call user friendly.

Cons

When I reuse the course for the next year's student, I have to remove each student one at a time instead of being able to purge all former students from the course.

I would like to be able to transfer the results directly to Progress book.

I have used Schoology as a teacher with students and as a professional development platform with other teachers. I love all the options I have for sharing content of all types and engaging students in many ways. I constantly find new features to try out with my students.

In addition, I am one of the system admins for our school district. I have used both the Basic (free) version and the Enterprise version. Schoology Support is always helpful, and while they cannot always meet my needs right away, they are always working on site improvements and new features.

Pros

•Ease of use - Most teachers, students, and parents learn to navigate the LMS pretty easily.

•Many levels of use - Teachers can begin using the LMS at a simple, basic level with great success, and then progress to use more advanced features that enrich the educational experience of their students. I love incorporating online discussions and media albums in my classes.

•Anywhere, anytime - Teachers can set up their daily classes in Schoology, embedding images, media, discussions, quizzes, and more. This lends itself to all types of teaching experiences from whole class to small group to individual assignments. Assignments can actually be assigned to small groups or individual students, and these will not populate the Schoology feeds of other students. The Schoology course can be used to facilitate the classroom experience, but also allows student access to classroom content 24/7.

•Great integration with G Suite - Schoology plays very well with all things Google. I love the Google Drive Assignments app, which organizes my students’ assignments so beautifully.

Cons

•Cannot create recurring calendar events.
•Badges are only visible on Profile Page. I wish they were more visible on all pages, like they are in Khan Academy. Badges are also not visible on the iOS platform.
•I wish assignments had both “assigned on” dates, as well as “due dates.”

I have been using Schoology as a classroom teacher and teacher trainer for over 3 years now. I am always amazed when I see other LMS and how it compares to Schoology. It is a such a great tool to personalize and enhance learning for both teachers and students. There are wide variety of features that make Schoology the top choice for all different learners- opportunities for enrichment, individually assigned tasks, language translation, and places for students to post and share their work.

Pros

- Customer Service is amazing and quick
- Easily integrates with our SIS
- Ability to share resources with other teachers
- easy interface for secondary students with multiple courses

Schoology changed my classroom experience for the better. It is integral to my classroom and our school district since we are 1:1. Schoology isn't just a tool it creates a culture in your classroom that helps faciliate community in the classroom experience.

Pros

*User Functionality - easy for teachers and students to use!
*Consistency of Updates from Schoology - they are constantly improving the platform whether it be with new app integration or ease of use in design.
*Support - Their support team is amazing, and client services are impeccable.
* Number of Apps that integrate is growing all the time!
*Google Assignment App stepped up the overall experience and use for Teachers.
* Assessment update changed the game - appeals to all different subject areas.

Cons

Honestly none because any issue that has existed Schoology has responded with an update if there was enough need for a change! That is one of their greatest strengths as a company.

Schoology has enabled me to create a digital platform for my students to access whenever and however they need. Being a traveling teacher has its own unique set of obstacles, but Schoology has empowered me to bring my in-person style and flare to the digital space. I no longer feel as I am scatted around multiple classrooms. Each of my digital classrooms are organized in the same manner so there is a sense of structure to my instruction, just like a physical space would allow.

Pros

I love that I can use Schoology as a vehicle to personalization--personalization for student learning and personalization for my instruction. I am able to add/delete assignments for students. I can create assignments for specific groups of students. It is easier to use the same rubric for similar assignments because the rubric is already built and saved. I can deliver lessons in various methods. My instruction and assessment have become more transparent (and more fair!) for students due to these features.

Cons

The features that I most dislike about Schoology revolve around the integrations with Google Drive and TurnItIn. While I have long applauded the Google integration, I detest that the Google assignments (when submitted through this integration) are not time stamped. Also, my colleagues and I have found TurnItIn to be a bit more complicated than necessary to use. It is not intuitive, and rather difficult to explain to students. I often end up not using it.

Pros

Files were easy to upload and submit. There was also space for chat forums that seemed to be useful with some classmates and participants. But overall, I did not think these qualities would have been unique to other similar platforms.

Cons

The whole format was just overly complicated. Perhaps it was the administrators, but I could click through a dozen folders before finding the things I was looking for. Sometimes important announcements were posted and I wouldn't even see them. I used it for a year and I don't think I ever came close to mastering it, and I used both the mobile app and the computer website. Schoology simply isn't your best option out there. There is the possibility that the administrators just didn't set it up wisely, but that could be reflective of the software as well.

I have been using Schoology in my classroom for 4 years in a vocational career and technical education for high school juniors and seniors. By using the free edition of Schoology, our classroom has become more efficient by going mostly all digital through a combination of this platform and Google Drive. Students can access and turn in materials (and I can grade) from anywhere there is internet. It has allowed us to spend more time working with students in the classroom.

Pros

Schoology has a plethora of features for organizing and distributing materials, tracking grades and attendance, and assessment.

Cons

Some great features / functionality is blocked behind their Enterprise (paid) edition.

I love the app because you can send messages to the teachers without disrupting them with telephone calls. Also you can view all of your children’s progress if you have more than one attending that particular school. I like that if your child is having trouble in a subject you will know ahead of time by assessing their grades and averages through this app. Overall, I have had a great experience! I recommend it to parents that want to keep track of how well their children are doing in school.

Pros

I love that it gives you your child’s test grades as soon as the teacher uploads them.

Cons

I wish that you could view your child’s homework assignments.

I can easily toggle between children, and it simplifies the access to grades, homework, and teacher communication.

Cons

Navigation could be more intuitive and I'd like to see it introduce more alerts in the ios app.

Pros

I like the one-stop shopping for students, parents, and teachers to find all the information they need for the school.

Cons

Obviously - everyone in the school need to be on the same page with using it on a daily basis.

Pros

It’s a great way to see homework assignments, grades and to submit assignments.

Cons

It is rather complicated to understand how to use as a teacher, and that gives problems for the students when things aren’t done correctly. Grades were never up to date or correctly submitted.

I spent six years using this program for school.

Pros

I mean, it got the job done, I suppose.

Cons

It's confusing to use and teachers would just upload their documents randomly so it was often difficult to find things. Schoology has a lot of features that are never used that clog up the home screen. I also think it would be much nicer if you were sent to your list of classes as your home screen rather than the feed of comments. Students often just post annoying comments that then you have to look at every time you log in. It's slow, and seems outdated.

Pros

Through Schoology it is easy to manage and design coursework for blended and personalized learning. It is designed to integrate other platforms like Google and NearPod. It can be used with students in K through 12.

Cons

At this time, I do not see any cons with this LMS platform. I was not on the panel that decided to purchase this LMS, so I cannot comment on the price for quality. I will say that I have heard the Schoology team is very receptive to suggestions for improvement.
