Schoology Overview

Lusk Community College is proud to use Schoology as its virtual learning environment (VLE). Schoology is used by all teachers to share resources with students and communicate. We currently use the Enterprise version of Schoology with the fee included in the student registration fee.

Schoology is a learning management system (LMS) for primary and secondary schools, higher education institutions, and corporations that allows users to create, manage, and share content and resources. Also known as a course management system (CMS) or virtual learning environment (VLE), the cloud-based platform provides tools to manage any classroom or blended learning environment.Some of its many functions are listed below.

  1. Flexible Instructional Tools - allows the teacher to easily differentiate instruction for students of different abilities allowing the material to be done at a student's own pace or as a group depending on preference of teacher/student.
  2. Badges - allows the teacher to create customized badges for incentives and motivation. Badges are similar to trophies they might earn on video games or other social media games.
  3. Online Homework Submissions - in-line grading system allows the teacher to comment, annotate, and grade an assignment without having to download and then upload the grade version.
  4. Assignments and Events - allows the teacher to create a variety of different assignments that include content from a hard-drive or the web.
  5. Tests and Quizzes - allows instructors to create a variety of different types of questions for quizzes and test. These test and quizzes can include a wide variety of media as well, making it easy to personalize and differentiate tests with ease.
  6. Mobile Learning - "Native mobile apps extend our award-winning LMS to all iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire mobile devices for free, enabling cost-effective 1:1 and BYOD initiatives. Everything from assessment creation, submission, and grading to media-rich discussions are easily achieved from a mobile device." (Schoology, 2013)
  7. Online Gradebook and Attendance - allows the teacher to keep grade easily accessible from any internet connection. With the in-program grading features, graded assignments and test are automatically input into the gradebook. This alone can save teachers a huge amount of time.
  8. Customized Grading Options - allows the teacher to grade using a numeric, alphabetic, or rubric system. The rubrics are completely customizable including point value, descriptions, and naming.
  9. Standards and Outcomes Alignments - allows teachers to easily align content, assessments, and rubrics to Common Core, State Standards, or custom learning outcomes.
  10. Discussions - allows the teachers to set up threaded discussion which allow for easy response and organizations. Posts can include a variety of files as well.
