Pros

I liked how good the UX was, I loved the ease of marking exams and writing reviews to students.
Faculty and students alike can get what they need to be successful. Tech support is wonderful.
This software help me to back on studying and they has good time management that fit on my availability.

Pros

I love that I can save pretty much anything to resources, and share it across my courses (I teach 18 classes as our teacher librarian), as well as share with my colleagues at different schools.
Schoology helps me to keep track of assignments, meetings and readings for the leadership program I am a part of. It helps me keep organized and on top of things.
Overall happy, and on top of being a great tool, the customer service is amazing.

Cons

I find it difficult to navigate sometimes, as the user interface is confusing.
Only complaint is to incorporate email into the software.
There are multiple levels of redundancy that are not kept consistent throughout the interface, so it is often confusing to locate materials. Brightspace is also slow to load.

Cons

Does not work as well with Microsoft Office ans it does Google.
It was difficult for students to find the materials they needed and it was difficult to post assignments.
Students also struggled with how to turn in assignments and would do it differently.

Schoology

Practical and Parent-friendly

Reviewed 3 years ago

Schoology provides an innovative and user-friendly platform for students and teachers alike. It is frequently updated and offers a good support network. The main drawback is that it cannot be integrated or ported to support other LMSs, such as Brightspace. This limitation is a drawback if students are required to use multiple LMSs in their schools.

Pros

User-friendly interface Aesthetically appealing menus Excellent toggling and response times Parents have access

Cons

This is an alternative to Google Classroom, Moodle, and other LMSs. As such, it cannot be easily integrated with LMSs that might be present for other courses, such as concurrent enrollment.
