Schoology



What is Schoology?

Schoology is an LMS (Learning Management System) designed specifically for k-12 educators. This is an online platform for educators to post announcements, assignments, discussion boards, media albums, videos, and much more. Students can create digital portfolios, participate in teacher guided online discussions, review blended content, and submit assignments. Collaboration and communication in the platform make it easy to create a "connected class" and build community. Teachers can create online quizzes, post audio and video, give online feedback, join groups and share resources. Parents or guardians can access their child's work. 

For a quick overview of Schoology, review this video:

Logging in to Schoology Enterprise

Educators using the Enterprise Edition should check with their System Administrators for information on teacher and student logins. Each check district with has its own unique URL and procedures for logging in. A free Basic version of Schoology is also available for use by teachers who do not have access to an Enterprise environment. Basic users will be migrated into the Enterprise version of Schoology after district adoption.

PowerSchool Integration

Districts using the Enterprise version of Schoology are supported by MISD with Power School integration, including automatic account creation for students and teachers, automatic class  population of accounts for students and teachers, and grade center transfer from Schoology to the Power Teacher Pro grade book.

Teachers who plan to use the grade transfer feature of Schoology need to set up their Schoology grade center for each class at the start of each term (e.g. semester, quarter, trimester, year). Categories must be established in Schoology and they must be mapped to the categories in Power Teacher Pro prior to using the grade transfer feature. The grade center should be set to calculate by "Total Points." Due dates must be used with all assignments or graded work in Schoology in order for the grades to populate correctly in Power Teacher Pro.

Please review the documentation below for details.
