Overall Satisfaction with Schoology

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.
  • Customer Service is amazing. If there is something that doesn't see to work, the customer service department is there to help! The help and support page is comprehensive.
  • It is easy to embed various programs, web site and apps into this one LMS platform. This makes if very easy to customize.
  • Improvements and modifications are constantly being made. The company stays ahead of current trends.
  • Organization of courses and groups is easy, with many an endless amount of possibilities available for creation.
  • While this product constantly seeks to make improvements, certain features need tweaking. As educators enroll in various courses, these course tend to accumulate. If the educator is not an administrator of the course, it is next to impossible to get out.
  • Switching from one course/group to another course/group takes several steps. Not always easy to find the course/group needed.
  • When tied to curriculum and objectives, there are many different mastery reports and assessment tools that can be used. These can guide instruction.
I've worked with several different learning management systems. Schoology has more to offer and allows students to work within the LMS. Other apps and programs can be embedded and opened inside the LMS. Educators can create and use great graphics within folders, pages, assignments, and assessments. While the free version has many great features, the enterprise version (for schools and districts) allows teachers to collaborate and share information.
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.

Would you buy Schoology Learning again?

Schoology is a learning management system that is designed for K-12 schools. In my personal experience as an elementary school educator, students in grades 2-5 can easily use this LMS. However, it is not as primary friendly for our young K-1 students, who rarely use the program. At times, the program can be daunting to teaches who do feel as confident in their own tech skills, but with support, it is very usable.
