How I Use It
Schoology is a virtual classroom and collaborative learning platform. Schoology can be used for all your classroom needs. You can use it as little or as much as you want. At a very basic level you can post assignment due dates for students. You can go a step further and post guidelines for the assignment. Take it even further and attach resources, videos and other support materials to the assignment. Then create a test and have Schoology grade it for you. It is a great repository for all your materials, and you can easily share your materials with other Schoology users. Schoology allows you to post announcements and events. The gradebook is comprehensive and easy to use. You can track mastery of standards and differentiate assignments easily. If you are looking to "flip" your class, implement a blended learning model, or simply have a place to store resources, Schoology can do as little or as much as you want.
Schoology is amazing! There is really nothing "bad" I can say about Schoology, other than you "may" get overwhelmed with all Schoology has to offer, but there are numerous tutorials available in the Schoology help center and on YouTube. You will not need any other management system. Schoology allows students to access class resources and materials, anywhere, anytime, as long as they have an internet connection. It gives teachers an area for communication and resource sharing. Schoology has it all.
