Initial System Build

  • The Schoology platform is a fully built, commercial off the shelf Learning Management System.  Schoology is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, 100% cloud-based learning management solution offering browser support for Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Firefox 3.5+ and Microsoft Edge Browser.

    By deploying a cloud-based SaaS system, Schoology does not have to build out heavy infrastructure to support new institutional implementations.  Once a district signs with Schoology, the district will be assigned an onboarding team. This team will develop a plan that includes technical integrations, roles and permission set up, and system admin training to ensure the district is set up for a successful roll out of the platform.

Content

  • Schoology adheres to all major interoperability standards and enables a district to leverage third-party applications within the platform, either through our API or by conforming to IMS Global Standards. Schoology is compliant with the following standards: IMS, IMS Enterprise, Common Cartridge, OneRoster, QTI (Question Test Interoperability), LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability), OSID (Open Service Interface Definition), LDAP Authentication, SCORM, XML and Web Services (i.e. SOA – Service Oriented Architecture).

    Schoology also provides over 200 pre-built integrations in our App center. Our extensible platform can support the district’s needs today and in the future.

    Schoology also allows instructors to include multimedia resources and to easily access third-party and OER content within the platform. Integrations with such vendors as Nearpod, CK-12 and more allow instructors to add content to their course with a click.

    Schoology Learning offers a true Learning Object Repository (Resources). The Resources area is divided into Personal, Public and Group, giving users the ability to organize, collect and store all the materials they have created throughout the school year and the flexibility to share those materials with others. Schoology Learning actively promotes the ability to share these resources with peers, the school, the district at large, and even with the global Schoology Learning community. All types of content, including audio and video files, images, interactive materials and more can be stored in the Resources area.

Google and Microsoft Integration

  • Schoology integrates with both Google and Microsoft.  Courses may not be directly imported into Schoology from Google Classroom or Microsoft TEAMS.

    Schoology Learning’s integration with GSuite and Office 365 gives your educators and students all the benefits of Google and Microsoft within a powerful learning management system.  Schoology Learning’s integration allows users to easily access Google Drive and OneDrive Documents.

    Schoology Learning has an enhanced Google and Microsoft integration, ncluding Google Drive and OneDrive assingment apps, that enables a seamless workflow that that allows instructors to assign and distribute copies of Google and Microsoft Documents for students to fill out as their assignment submissions.

Schoology also provides active community support within the Help Center, with discussions and responses moderated by Schoology employees, and regular announcements of new Schoology features.

Course Duplicating and Sharing

  • Schoology understands that dynamic and engaging materials are the heart of a teacher’s course. We also understand that having the ability to store and easily reuse those materials is important and can save a teacher valuable time that can then be dedicated to working with students. Some learning management systems force an “archive” process at the end of a term. With Schoology, since storage is not limited, instead of an “archive” process that removes old material, Schoology allows for content to be kept online indefinitely, moving inactive courses into an “Inactive” view so that it doesn’t clutter the interface. If the division allows, teachers can always find courses they used in prior years and copy material from those into new courses.

    With that said, we have worked hard to make it even easier for teachers to reuse content from year to year. For this reason, Schoology offers a true Learning Object Repository (Resources). The Resources area is divided into Personal, Public and Group, giving users the ability to organize, collect and store all the materials they have created throughout the school year and the flexibility to share those materials with others. 

    In additon, Schoology’s Rich Text Editor allows instructors to easily edit and modify content at any time.  As soon as you make an update to a course or multiple section-linked courses that update will be posted.

Student/Teacher Communication

  • Our solution was specifically designed to foster a sense of community and increase collaboration. Schoology reaches users through familiar social networking communication, group functionality that encourages users to collaboratively design and create materials, and a number of in platform tools to increase student engagement.

    When users log in, they can choose between a course dashboard view or a recent activity feed. The recent activity feed displays all of the announcements and updates across the courses and groups in which the user is enrolled, making it easy to stay up to date on course and co-curricular activity. Users can reply to posts with comments, audio or video and can even “like” one another’s posts.

    In addition, Schoology offers the following tools:

    Web conferencing & Whiteboard - Schoology Conferences allows course and group admins to create, plan and hold live audio and video conferences.

    Chat - Chat functionality is provided through Schoology Conferences as well as an integration with Backchannel Chat

    Messages - Schoology provides a secure and configurable messaging engine that can connect to external email systems (e.g. Google, Outlook, etc.)

    Announcements - Directly from the homepage users can post announcements to specific users, courses, groups or to the institution as a whole.

    Surveys and Polls - Schoology offers a native polling tool that allows users to poll Courses, Groups and the entire institution or system.

    Audio and Video - Users can upload prerecorded videos and audio files. In addition, users can record videos and audio files directly within the platform as submissions to assignments, posts to discussions and as feedback to students.

    Discussions - Instructors can easily create an interactive course or group Discussion which can be graded and linked to learning objects, and aligned to learning outcomes and resources.

    Groups - Schoology Groups provide unique functionality for collaboration outside of the course environment.

    Collaborative Documents - The Schoology platform offers deep integrations with enhanced collaborative tools such as Google Drive, which allows users to share and build content in a manner similar to Wikis.

Project Based Learning

  •  Schoology offers a number of ways to support project/problem-based learning. With grading groups, instructors can group students together and assign each group a set of materials, a problem set and a discussion thread. Using the discussion thread, the group members can collaborate on the project, share materials and discuss their approach to solving the problem presented by the instructor.

    Schoology also allows instructors to easily create cross-curricular projects. Within a course, instructors can create a shared discussion that allows other instructors to join their classes into the same discussion. In this way, a history course and an English course can join together to discuss a novel and the historical context of the novel. The shared discussion enables collaboration beyond the confines of a class.

    Using Schoology’s Groups, instructors are also able to create cross-curricular collaborative environments for students to work on projects with other students who may be outside of their course.

    For example, if the history and English teachers wanted their ninth-grade students to complete a project in which the students would read a novel and do research on historical events during the novel's writing, the English and history instructors can create a group for all of the students in all of the courses.

    Students can then work together using discussions and sharing materials.

Badging

  • Teachers and administrators can create badges to reward learners and reinforce positive behavior. Custom badges can be created using a choice of shapes, colors, and any image or animated gif.

Usable on Multiple Devices

  • Schoology is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, 100% cloud-based learning management solution offering browser support for Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Firefox 3.5+ and Microsoft Edge Browser. Native mobile apps extend Schoology’s functionality to iOS, Android and Kindle Fire Devices.

    Unlike other Learning Management Systems, Schoology provides a single app to access all aspects of the platform.  Schoology Learning’s mobile app extend Blended Learning beyond the traditional classroom. They transform learning into a collaborative experience on any device anytime, anywhere.
