    GoGuardian Teacher

    GoGuardian Teacher is great for a teacher who needs a way to monitor student activities and work time on a laptop. It is easy to set up, simple to use and helps to keep students accountable when online in class. It integrates with Google Classroom which is a big help. It is more powerful for teachers experienced in using tech in the classroom. The archiving ability is great but the UX needs to improve.

    Schoology Learning

    Schoology does the job well enough, but there are enough areas of contention that make advanced use of the system unwieldy. District staff does not have easy reporting ability to determine adoption and use of the platform without having to export to another program for analysis. The reliability of the system is a huge pain point as we need to deliver the curriculum but cannot count on it being available when we need to use it.

    Pros

    GoGuardian Teacher

    • Cloud-based. Teachers do not have to monitor from just one device - they can do it from any device.
    • GoGuardian allows teachers to lock a student's screen when he/she needs the students attention.
    • GoGuardian allows the teacher to view all students' devices simultaneously.
    Rebecca Vold Preston | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Schoology Learning

    • Assessments - Much more interactive and have more grading options than Google Forms
    • Auto-rostering - We are able to use Infinite Campus to automatically roster classes and there are no extra steps
    • Family/Guardian access - Schoology allows families to have a sign in and see student grades & work.
    Tiffany LoSasso | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    GoGuardian Teacher

    • Students sometimes do not show up in the software despite being logged on to a Chromebook.
    • A Chromebook coming in and out of a sleep state can cause the user to not show up correctly.
    Brandon Burch | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Schoology Learning

    • Schoology is great when you are managing individual courses, but for our fully online and blended programming, it really lacked the back end administrator capabilities to be scaling up well - lack of a template/blueprint feature was really disappointing.
    • Third-party Integrations were few and often did not work well.
    • As a higher education institution, we saw very little responsiveness to our needs up against K-12. Although promises were made early on, they never came to fruition. Some faculty also felt the platform looked a bit 'juvenile' for higher ed.

    For a technology-heavy school, it is a necessary and good tool for managing classroom use of laptops. It is easy to set up and use. Helps track time on task and internet usage. Another source of data when speaking to parents about student work and activity. Can help plan and manage work time when you have limited devices.

    While we have taken time to re-evaluate our selected 1:1 devices, Schoology's impact on student learning is unquestioned. Students are able to connect with other learners, create and share products of their learning, and develop their digital fluency through their use of Schoology.

    It's very easy to use Schoology. As with any LMS, it helps to learn some tips and tricks prior to getting started. But, each item is clearly indicated within the platform. If I want to add materials, it is right at the top of my screen. If I want to view the calendar, it is indicated to the right of my screen. Navigating a course and the platform is quite straightforward. Additionally, the benefit of Schoology's help center and user community makes asking and answering questions quick and easy.

    They have been great to work with while piloting and implementing the program. They are quick to answer our faculty's questions and provide solutions to the problems. They are also open to feedback and suggestions concerning the program to help improve the platform. Our teachers have felt at ease with the implementation and are happy with the progress.

    Schoology has worked very closely with our school system to meet our specific needs. The Schoology team goes further than just working with the district staff. Any educator can ask questions, or provide feedback and the company acknowledges it. This company truly cares about each users' experience

    Alternatives Considered

    GoGuardian Teacher

    At the time we purchased GoGuardian there were no other alternatives that came even close to the functionality of this product. Over time I'm sure that some new products have been released. We, however, have not explored any other software suites for classroom management. We may in the future but for now, we are locked into GoGuardian Teacher.

    Schoology Learning

    I have taught using both Edmodo and Google Classroom. While both were easier than Schoology was to get in the beginning, Schoology is infinitely more powerful than either of them was. I can do so much more, and differentiate so much easier using Schoology than I could with either of my previous LMSs.

    Return on Investment

    GoGuardian Teacher

    • District invested a large sum into the program - but it has increased student engagement in the district.
    • Teachers are more aware of how on-task students are in the classroom.
    • Teachers are able to track sessions with the ease of scheduling before-hand.
    Rebecca Vold Preston | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Schoology Learning

    • Using Schoology to build a foundation for a blended learning model has helped increase my students ABC rate between 15-20% in all classes!
    • Using Schoology is forcing my students to become responsible for their own learning!
    • The only negative thing I have encountered is the students resistance to change!
