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.

Pros

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.
*I also used Schoology for my students to have online discussions, which they greatly enjoyed.

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.

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.

This software probably accomplishes what it is supposed to do, but I just found it annoying. I used it for a post-grad education program for a group size of about 100 and my email was blown up with notifications and I just never found the software functional.

Pros

Schoology has a wide function of features, they are just hard to use and figure out. I ended up not really taking advantage of the software's features due to my frustration with its lack of ease of use. Too many terms for everything!

Cons

Not easy to use; there's a different term for everything; too many links to get where you want to go; too many emails and notifications from other users.

Pros

Schoology is the principle tool for me to organize my class curriculum and communicate it to my students 24/7.

Cons

When I double click a line of text it automatically modifies the next line as well (irritating). The way to avoid this is to manually highlight up to the end of the last word instead of the double click option.

Schoology is a great organization tool for students as it displays all their classes and has each classes' contents inside the group. This allows for teachers to easily make assignments and information available to students digitally. Schoology also has a built-in calendar and notification system to make sure students turn in assignments on time. It has a very intuitive interface and it is easy to access for both administration, teachers, and students from both the mobile app and the web.

Cons

Schoology can sometimes have bugs which makes it frustrating in a classroom setting. Bugs can take time to fix and can delay important teaching material. The settings can be confusing at times and the mobile app can crash at times. Schoology support also takes some time to implement essential features which can be quite annoying at times.

It's the most popular application at my school. It's a great way for teachers and students to work at home using WiFi and leaving textbooks at home. I'm not a big fan because I prefer my classes to use a pen, paper, and textbooks primarily for the purpose it's designed for. It's a terrific app that connects teacher and student away from the classroom. I recommend this product without hesitation.

Pros

It has a ton of space for students and teachers to work with. It will grade work for teachers. It allows students to not have to take a textbook home every night.

Cons

It has too many options for technology limited instructors. Yes it's simple, but it does require some basic tech know how.

The software is central to our curriculum delivery in our 1:1 blended learning classrooms. It is a core app that we use daily and streamlines communication, assessment, and assignments.

Pros

Schoology is intuitive for both teachers and students. I love that Schoology is specifically designed for K-12 and has a simple interface for primary students. Schoology provides students one place to access curriculum content, collaborate with peers, and receive immediate feedback from assessments. Our teachers leverage several features in Schoology including grading groups and completion rules. Teachers can privately differentiate curriculum materials to individual students or groups with just a click using grading groups. Teachers can also design lessons that utilize completion rules which forces students to complete on activity with a certain degree of accuracy before moving on to the next activity. Teachers can also provide students feedback in a variety of formats which can include audio, video, drawings or written. The feedback is available to students as soon as it is graded. In addition to courses, Schoology also has a group feature which is one place for teachers to share curriculum materials with one another. The content in the group is shared with just a click to any course. This makes it very easy to move materials from teachers to students without the need to download or upload files, creating a smooth digital workflow.

Cons

None. The Schoology team is responsive to feedback and the team is constantly striving to make improvements.

Being able to collaborate and communicate with teachers in my department is fast and easy. Collaborative projects with students across all class periods has been very productive in my classes. Being able to sync to the gradebook is fast and efficient.

Pros

Ease in posting resources to keep students in Schoology for research projects and assignments. The ability to assess student learning in multiple formats. Being able to use the Google Drive link to create collaborative assignments across class periods for students to participate in allows all students to participate in one big project.

Cons

Schoology needs to solve the problem of students being able to copy and paste into Schoology. It's too easy for students to plagiarize when they can go outside of Schoology and copy and paste information to answer questions. I can tell students not to do that and remove grade points when they do, but if Schoology could find a way to not allow student accounts to copy and paste, there would be more original work done by students in the platform.

This makes grading and administering tests easy. Also it keeps your work saved in one place so you can use it year after year.

Pros

Once set up schoology allows teachers to administer tests via digitally and have the results graded instantly. It also is a great way to make class announcements at any time of the day and give students feedback and reminders with the messaging feature. Lastly I have really enjoyed the ability to create a thread for students to comment. This is very useful for class discussions.

The interface could be better. It is difficult to enter in tests without making mistakes. And saving tests in banks is not user friendly.

I use SChoology for my daughter's school communication and it is simple. i like that i don't have to be in the app and it still sends me the email.

Cons

easier to use the app versus be online. yet i would access it more online then on my phone, but doesn't end up mattering much as i read the emails sent to me.

Pros

It is a user friendly, less expensive but still robust software to use for school lessons, homework, and quizzes.

Cons

I dislike how much it looks like you are using Facebook. The layouts are extremely similar and can be hard to tell if a student is on Facebook or Schoology at first glance.

Not much, Easy Grade Pro is better

Pros

Ability to turn in assignments online, ability to message students. Ability to upload files, but not display.

Cons

So many, can't list them all. No way to set defaults for some features, requiring extra steps for common activities like inputting assignments. Combining classes still requires you to switch between windows of the "combined" classes. Printed progress reports are hard to get to, and not layed out well. Drop down that appears during grading gets on the way of inputting grades. When grading an assignment, each student's assignment causes a new window to open, cluttering the desk top. The graphics are old fashioned looking.

An easy way to manage your classroom and to give feedback to your students about their grades and assignments.

Pros

All the different features that the program provides the educator for feedback. It has literally something for everyone.

Cons

Many features take a while to learn and it could be a lot more intuitive. A tutorial feature integrated into the software would help a lot.

In a 1:1 iPad classroom, Schoology was a lifesaver for assignments, quizzes, and organization!

Pros

The ability to connect assignments with State Standards to create Mastery Grading. Connecting parents with their own log in meant that there were no surprises when it came time for grade reports and when parents were surprised, I could easily see if they had created a parent account. The time/date stamp on assignments was very helpful when a student tried to pit me against their parents. I also appreciated the option to personalize classes with photos, color code folders, and set announcement banners. I can't imagine teaching in today's Ed Tech world without Schoology.

Cons

Some of the features (such as badges) do not show on the IOS app. This was frustrating for me when implementing "gamification". Students needed a laptop or PC to view badges earned.

Pros

I like to use this program because of the design, the platform has an excellent ability to support our useful and new system, and I think this is a better future. Teachers love this service for high-quality work, a modern and simple interface, a lot of interesting and important tools for working and working with different documents. Very strong integration of knowledge. We are working with more confidence. And I am quite sure that this big step in the education system will make great changes. This program allows us to track the progress of students, as well as share them with their parents in real time.

Cons

The platform can be improved with more tools for direct interaction with one person, except sending emails. I think that there are several things that can be improved with regard to this software, such as a mobile application, sometimes there are problems with its failure.
