Schoology, a learning management system, allows teachers to provide online content for students that can be accessed 24/7 moving the classroom beyond traditional school walls. Class discussions, questions, notes, links to articles, assignments, quizzes and tests, and grades can all be delivered via this platform. Combined with our 1:1/Personalized Learning initiative, Schoology makes learning accessible both at home and at school.
Schoology, Learning Management System
As a Learning Management System, Schoology delivers and manages instructional content. Simply put, it is a vehicle for continuing the classroom experience in an online format that simplifies the learning process. Teachers build courses and add course materials, including resources such as course notes, articles, images, and videos, which they enhance through student discussions, assignment submissions, tests, and quizzes. Schoology is a perfect addition to the K12 environment and was created by college students who realized the need for a system that would enhance learning in the formal educational setting as well as online anywhere students choose to work.
Schoology can sync with the EASD Student Information System, allowing the teachers' Sapphire Gradebook to keep courses and rosters updated, automatically providing up-to-date information to students and parents.
Schoology adds many benefits to instruction:
- An easy to learn interface
- One central repository for course materials
- Peer-to-peer and teacher-to-student collaboration and communication in a secure environment
- Easily differentiated instruction
- Accessibility 24/7 from any internet connected device--Mobile app and web browser enabled
