Cons

I find it difficult to navigate sometimes, as the user interface is confusing.

Christine G.

Only complaint is to incorporate email into the software.

LI

Linda I.

This made it difficult to switch back and forth while taking a quiz. Also sometimes there is a delay in updating when a task has been completed so I had to refresh the page a few times.

MD

Melanie D.

Cons

Does not work as well with Microsoft Office ans it does Google.

SM

Susan M.

It was difficult for students to find the materials they needed and it was difficult to post assignments.

CL

Cassandra L.

Students also struggled with how to turn in assignments and would do it differently.

Schoology

Practical and Parent-friendly

Reviewed 2 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.
