    Hero is a great time saver for any busy school administrator. Students are able to use technology to earn positive points and also track and manage their own discipline. It is user-friendly and adaptable to the specific needs of the school. I love writing my own tracking codes and setting the action thresholds.

    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

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    • Allows ALL students to earn points at the push of a button.
    • Connects with infinite Campus so student schedules and info are always accurate on the Hero site.
    • Allows teachers to create their own groups for after school programs or even small groups in their classrooms.
    Anonymous | 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.

    Cons

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    • Hero had the Hero Homeroom where teachers could collaborate and receive rewards but that was discontinued. I think that a similar reward system for those who are supposed to be inputting information would be helpful, where consistency for the required input is rewarded. For example: teachers were to be recording points for all their students every period every day - if they received points for completing their input & could then choose to spend those points on rewards that would help encourage participation to make it more successful overall.
    • Too hands-off in making sure that implementation is as successful as possible.
    • Too techie for non-tech savvy people.
    Kathleen Hall | 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.

    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.

    again. for the day to day usage, adding points is a bit of a chore but I keep doing it because the students respond

    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.

    Someone is always available. I like being able to call, chat, or email as needed. There are also a lot of tutorials and webinars provided. Hero does a good job of providing tools for onboarding new users and customers as well. It is easy to find whatever information you are looking for.

    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

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    We used a tardy tracking system a couple years ago but it wasn't as efficient as Hero. It did not keep track of any positive behaviors. I don't remember the name of the system but I know it only focused on the negative behaviors and giving out consequences for those negative behaviors.
    LISA JOHNSON | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    Hero, by Schoolmint

    • Definitely worth the money. The kids are happy, they're using the program as often as they can, and they appreciate the opportunity to be rewarded for their good behavior.
    • We've been able to sustain a store, and that's super awesome. I know we wouldn't be able to without the help of Hero and the ways in which we keep the hype.
    • I think I need more help with teacher adoption. We have a lot of initiatives at our school, so we're trying to take on a little more than we can chew at this point. We're getting there though!

    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!
