Product Details

What is Schoology Learning?

Schoology, now a PowerSchool Unified Classroom product, is a learning management system (LMS). Schoology’s platform is built specifically for the needs of K-12 students, teachers, and administrators. Schoology aims to combine as many parts of the learning process as possible into a single platform. By doing this they aim to simplify the learning experience for students, parents, and teachers.

The Basic Package is free for instructors and includes features such as an Academic Activity Dashboard, Instructional Tools, and a Native Document Grader. The Enterprise Package includes the Basic Package and additional features such as Systemwide Administration, User Management, and Workload Planning.

PowerSchool acquired Schoology in late 2019.


Overview of Schoology Features

Schoology focuses on student mastery of learning objectives by offering a proficiency model of grading and traditional numeric grades. Through their online platform, it is simple to deliver assessments to students regardless of their location. Assessments are flexible and can be quick quizzes, locally-created benchmarks, or district-wide assessments.


Through Schoology’s built-in data and analytics, educators can determine what is working and what is not at several different levels. The reports generated give information at both the class and school level and can be used by teachers to determine how their students are doing, as well as administrators to ensure that all students school-wide are on track. Reports can be shared via a secure URL, and access is filtered based on staff permissions

Schoology aims to ensure effective communication between parents and educators. Teachers can send weekly digests about classroom activities. Parents can instantly access their students' grades to get an idea of their child’s full learning experience.

Per the vendor, Schoology is easy to use in combination with other learning tools and comes with over 200 native integrations. Educators can use said tools to quickly create assignments. Courses can be built from scratch, or educators can use Schoology’s content library that contains over 300 applications. Courses can be easily shared with other teachers or can be re-used across multiple academic years.

Collaboration is encouraged between teachers through the Public Groups pages on Schoology. These are community pages where educators can share ideas, ask questions and learn from each other.


Tailored Education Solutions

Schoology aims to create a highly tailored educational experience for students that ensures that they meet learning objectives in the way that works best for them. By offering personalized pacing, students can work through the material at the speed that suits their individual needs.

Educators also have the option of creating lessons that give students a choice in how they learn the material. Students can select the tasks that suit their learning style, and a grade for that lesson appears in the grade book, regardless of which task was selected.

Schoology also emphasizes the importance of collaboration between students, even in a remote learning environment. The Groups feature allows students to communicate and store resources about sports, clubs, etc. outside of their course modules.

I love using Schoology because it does help students with learning their assigned subjects. I have used this program and it is comparable to Google Classroom but what sets it apart, in my opinion, is the way that the lessons and visuals are laid out which makes it easier for the students to get on the same page as the teacher. It is a great program to use and the New York City Department of Education uses it widely in their remote learning package available to students.

Schoology is used as a platform for giving assignments, scoring them, and providing feedback to students. All teachers in my school district are mandated to use it to keep track of student grades. There are benefits in general to electronic gradebooks over paper ones, of course, but that said, this system has so many problems it's hard to know where to begin.

We are using Schoology Learning as our primary means of educational delivery to both on-site and virtual students throughout the course of the pandemic. Using it has allowed us to keep some sense of instructional delivery intact while some students are at the school and some are not. Additionally, it will be able to be supplemental training material in the future when we do return to full-time attendance.

Schoology is used across the district as an online learning platform that is used for both synchronous and asynchronous learning. It allows us to use less paper by having assignments online, which also mitigates challenges with students losing paper copies. Additionally, it allows for linked assignments with Google Drive for easy storage, real time viewing for feedback, and rubrics attached to assignments for easy grading.

Schoology is being utilized in St. Mary's County Public Schools as our primary Learning Management System. It helps us to reach both in-person and virtual students through the organization of materials and the implementation of blended teaching strategies embedded with technology. We have users Pre-K through 12 grade using this as a primary source of curriculum materials and grading.

We used Schoology to manage "supplemental" sites for all on campus courses, as well as fully online and blended programs. We found Schoology's niche was in the supplemental role, acting as an excellent platform for flipping the classroom and managing supplemental online activity managed by individual faculty members. This was used across the organization and also became useful for faculty groups, departments, and other interest groups in a social-networking manner.

We use Schoology district wide for our students. All students and staff use this and we have found it to be a powerful tool especially during these remote learning months. The teachers have adopted it and are happy to have a product that works well. Without Schoology, I'm not sure how we would have successfully gotten through the distance learning process.

I use Schoology as a learning management tool where students review assignments, resources and submit assignments online. It allows students to access their assignments and resources at home or away from the classroom and it makes learning management more convenient for the instructor and the students. My school uses Google products for learning and able to use link resources from the google drive for my students makes it easy for them to access all materials.

Our whole organization is driven by Schoology Learning, a PowerSchool Unified Classroom. All interdepartmental communication is conducted through Schoology Learning, a PowerSchool Unified Classroom, as well as the bulk of instruction for this hybrid school year. When it comes to addressing business problems, at this point it seems that Schoology Learning, a PowerSchool Unified Classroom is our business. We as teachers spend five to six hours a day using it, as do our students.

Fieldcrest currently uses Schoology as a district wide Learning Management System (LMS). We switched to Schoology last year and I use Schoology for almost all of my course work. I teach using the flipped classroom model and Schoology's platform allows me to share my lecture videos, conduct assessments of student knowledge and understanding, to give assignments, and to provide communication with students and parents. All of my content is available to my students through Schoology 24/7, I can make it available in a variety of ways, and I can make updates in real time. Recently, Schoology's introduction of the Google Assignment App has me excited about our switch to Chromebooks. This app allows you to attach a Google Doc (say a study guide) as part of an assignment. When students open the assignment the document is copied, renamed, and added to their Google Drive. No more students opening or copying a new version of the document each time they go back to the assignment instead of to the copy they made but didn't actually rename like the directions stated. The document is 'tied' to the assignment and updates no matter where they work on it from (inside the assignment or through their Google Drive.)

Still to come, a cleaner looking interface with differentiation for elementary students!

Our school uses Schoology as a Learning Management System. As teachers we submit our lesson plans on there. We use the resources to store our units and assignments. We post our assignments for students. Students retrieve assignments, videos and use subscriptions with SSOs. They can also take assessments, have discussions and answer polls in their class.

Parents can monitor their students assignments and keep track of what is due and when.

Our school system adopted Schoology as our Learning Management System a few years ago. At first, it was piloted at a few select schools, then all schools were encouraged to adopt the platform. Now, it is the preferred LMS for our very large school system. It is used in a K-12 public education setting in more than 100 schools.

I have used Schoology in my classroom for several years and my county/district recently purchased the enterprise edition which offers much more for the user. While a few teachers are using it in classrooms during the early adoption, we are using Schoology to provide professional learning for our teachers which has increased teacher interest and use.

Schoology is used by many teachers in our unit. Even though there is a problem with regards to some videos during assessments, we managed and found ways how to help our students play the videos. Schoology has helped many teachers in managing the time of the whole class by giving timed assessments. The type of assessments we have in Schoology has been a big help in coping up with the variety of students we have in the Philippines. I highly recommend the use of Schoology as a learning management system in every school. Give it a chance in your schools, for there will be a lot of updates that they are always doing. This will help you in updating the students on what to do next. It could also be their social media while they are studying. This will be a perfect teacher’s companion in managing student’s assignments and projects.

Our entire district is using Schoology to deliver content and engage students, teachers, and parents. Our administrators are leveraging the platform to make our school calendar visible, disseminate information during PDs, update announcements, and other important information. Teachers are beginning to use Schoology to upload lessons and activities for their students and make announcements for parents.

We are a two high school district that uses Schoology as our LMS. Currently, teachers utilize Schoology to house all of their classrooms needs digitally, as well as design and develop more engaging blended learning scenarios. Students use Schoology to access their classroom and homework, complete assignments beyond the normal school hours, collaborate and share. Administratively, we also use Schoology to send out notices and reminders and keep staff and students in the loop. Schoology has helped us in a number of key areas as we continue to shift the educational paradigm and create more personalized learning situations.

Schoology is being used as our LMS (Learning Management System) of choice. We use Schoology in order to provide virtual spaces for students to learn and engage in very personalized settings. Schoology becomes very useful when used in very tech-rich environments, as it helps educators keep all online tools in one place, and helps manage student resources, work, and data in one place. Furthermore, Schoology has allowed our district to provide classes for not just students, but also other teachers to provide enriching professional development. It has also encouraged many of our educators to connect via the available professional learning networks (pln's) available in the open groups.

Four years ago our District was in search of a single Learning Management System to use. At that point in time, our teachers were using whatever LMS they preferred. During this time we noticed that our student needed consistency. Talking with one student, he had to work with 7 different LMS's to get class information or turn in assignments. Through a year of research, our team (admin, teachers, and students) decided on Schoology as our main LMS. Schoology offers us an easy way to deploy information to students in a variety of methods. It allows our students to turn in homework one way. Schoology had an app that works well with our 1:1 iPad environment. Schoology just fits with everything we wanted to do. We are in year 3 and can say that 100% of our Secondary teachers and 90% of our Primary teachers use Schoology on a daily basis.

My campus opened this year using Schoology. For many of us, this was our first time using an LMS to include most of the features. We are all at different places with our understanding. Our media specialist established a Schoology Squad to assist in training, modeling, and encouraging others to use Schoology to its fullest extent. Our students and parents love Schoology. As a teacher, I love the ease of access for everyone and the simplicity of organizing materials for students to access both at home and at school.

Our campus is new this year and falls under the STEAM umbrella of education. Given the High level of technology use by both faculty and students, we realized that an LMS is vital to our success. We use Schoology in many ways, including;
  1. Platform to communicate updates and announcements to all stakeholders in our school community.
  2. Repository to house all professional development resources and courses for faculty.
  3. A collaborative platform for curriculum writing. Our content teams have all developed a collaborative Group to discuss, collaborate, and house resources to be used in the classes.
  4. A virtual classroom for all courses-- embedded interactive activities, assignments, due dates, calendar events, discussions.
  5. Gradebook-- while not the official gradebook, we use the gradebook feature for effective feedback. Our gradebook is set up to sync with our official district-wide gradebook.

Schoology is used across my district in all schools from k-12th grade. Teachers across the district use this to address equity and student choice. They also have student groups to foster communication between admin/counselors and their students, and for clubs & Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to share resources!
