How I Use It
We use Schoology as our primary LMS (Learning Management System). All assignments, courses, clubs and information is shared between students, staff and faculty on Schoology. From a teacher's point of view, Schoology allows for a variety of different tools. For example, quizzes can be administered and graded by Schoology immediately. Organization is easy with the ability to create folders, pages, assignments, discussions, galleries and more. Schoology allows for embedding which gives teachers the opportunity to bring all information into one location rather than scattering over the web. Schoology also provides an opportunity for a "student completion" mode. This mode requires students to work in a specific order in a self-paced lesson.
My Take
Schoology is a tool that is bigger than I have used. It seems that I am always finding new ways to use Schoology. There are many different ways to give student feedback, a diverse set of assessment tools, and an excellent, easy to use social network to communicate with students and parents. This is a valuable LMS that I highly recommend.
