Overall Satisfaction with Schoology

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 organizes resources is an easy-to-understand and design layout. With this, student work and assignments are no longer lost in the "shuffle" of the school day.
  • Schoology works well with many other apps and programs such as Google Docs, and uses an integrated LTI app so that users can embed other programs such as Thinglink, Quizlet, Padlet, Smore, and many more.
  • Schoology is always improving. Since implementing Schoology we have had the benefit to see a number of key new additions be added to the platform including LockDown Quizzes with Respondus, the AMP and Mastery Learning feature, the Portfolio feature, and the upcoming enhanced Google Docs integration.
  • One feature I'd like to see added is the option to individually assign an entire folder of contents to a particular student. As of now, each separate assignment can be individually assigned, but more often than not, teachers need to send multiple materials and it would be easier to open a folder and share.
  • Overall, Schoology has helped our teachers transition their teaching to a more personalized format.
  • Schoology has helped us better integrate technology into the school in a more useful format.
  • It has helped students keep track of their work and manage their assignment in a more collaborative environment.
I think Schoology is the best of the best. This is the all-around LMS in my opinion and offers features that these other platforms do not. The ability to personalize your class and tailor it to your expectations and wants is unparalleled. Schoology does all the little things right while continuing to enhance their features.
Schoology is well suited for blended learning, personalized learning, and gamification in education. With the multitude of features included as well as the various programs that work well within Schoology, teachers and schools have at their disposal a plethora of reliable and engaging tools to increase student engagement and flip education from the traditional format to a seamlessly tech-driven one that students feel comfortable with.
