WHAT IS SCHOOLOGY?
Schoology,/skoo-luh-jee/: A learning management system (LMS) that connects all the people, content, and systems that fuel education.
Schoology will provide our teachers the power to extend their classrooms into an online platform that will facilitate both scheduled teacher-led and independent at-home learning. Teachers can share announcements, special dates, pictures, newsletters, discussion boards, lessons, videos, and more on Schoology.
HOW CAN I ACCESS SCHOOLOGY?
Students are automatically enrolled in Schoology by their assigned school during the class enrollment process (managed by Synergy).
Students will not have to create an account – they will log into Schoology using their CPS Google accounts.
Parents will have to create an account – parents will receive an alpha-numeric join code that is linked to their child. Multiple parents can use the same join code in order to be connected to their children.
This video shows how to log onto Schoology with your parent account.
WHAT CAN PARENTS SEE ON SCHOOLOGY?
A Schoology Parent account will provide view-access to their student’s activity in Schoology. Parents will be able to monitor upcoming assignments, overdue work, and other course content. In addition, parents will be able to view opportunities offered to their student through the Groups feature. Synergy will remain the gradebook of record. This means you will still access your student’s grades through your ParentVUE account.
CAN STUDENTS ACCESS SCHOOLOGY ON A MOBILE DEVICE?
Schoology can be accessed directly on the web through a browser or on an app installed on your mobile device (phone or tablet). Typically, apps have reduced capabilities or other limitations compared to the full website. While the Schoology app is very robust and students will be able to complete many assignments and assessments using a mobile device, it will not provide the same experience as using the full web-based site. This is particularly true for any assignments students have to submit using Google based products such as Docs, Slides, or Sheets.
