How I Use It
I have used Schoology to distribute electronic lesson materials to a large groups of students. Students can also use Schoology to participate in discussions as well as submit work. For students to join your course - they must log in using the course code which can only be provided by the teacher. This will require a degree of supervision of the students to make sure that everyone is able to log-in and find materials. Once students become comfortable with Schoology, lesson implementation using the app becomes pretty seamless.
My Take
Overall Schoology is a great Educational Tool. It really serves students by being a way to connect school and home using technology. Students are no longer bound to carrying a backpack full of books to class or to home. Everything can be available to them using Schoology. I highly recommend it.
