How I Use It
I have used Schoology for a couple years now to deliver, receive, collaborate, and guide learning. I teach several digital art/multimedia courses where this tool is ideal for me to deliver assignments and content to students where they are able to submit a finished product back to me which is then easily shared with parents and peers. Schoology has a great test and quiz system which allows scheduled testing and automated grading and has been a time saver for me! I have also used schoology as a flipped classroom learning environment on many occasions where I'll embed a video and students are able to view and submit assignments back to me. The premium version of schoology has powerschool integration as well which makes grading completely automated and seamless. The free version however does not include this feature, but grades can be exported as a CSV then imported into powerschool. My only complaint is that when students submit large videos back to me the file size has to be under 150MB I believe for them to be received through the free version of schoology.
My Take
This is in my opinion the one-stop-shop for learning tools in the classroom. It helps me and my students stay organized whether at school or at home, allows students to collaborate on lessons and share their learning with parents and the world, and has automated a good portion of my grading for me!
