Technology is no longer a prodigy in today’s education system. As students of this age are the children of digital natives, teachers and educational institutions are finding advanced ways to teach them through tech platforms that can engage and create an interactive classroom reflecting their thought. Schoology offers an innovative solution combining dynamic learning management, an easy-to-use collaborative interface, and next-generation API integration. The NY based firm connects everyone on the same network through their Learning Management System (LMS) to boost communication and sharing in the classroom, across the institution, and around the world. Collaboration is the core of what Schoology is all about.

Schoology has all the tools that an institution needs to create engaging content, design lessons, and assess student understanding. The LMS platform incorporates the best of modern interfaces to facilitate easy learning and the accessibility of relevant information on any device. Students not only benefit from enhanced learning situations but are also prepared for an increasingly tech-centric world that they already inhabit. The firm gives students and faculty a centralized place to interact with their ongoing discussions even outside the class.

Furthermore, Schoology has a built-in professional learning community and is the apt vehicle for faculty to share ideas and resources with others around the world. This allows the faculty to build and join learning groups to promote a sense of community and increase collaboration across the institution. Group content libraries simplify the sharing of instructional resources and enable faculty to add them to their courses instantly.

Schoology is continuously working to make its education cloud the most inclusive learning management system. To its credit, Schoology is user-centric and adaptable for any kind of learning environment as it is available in the form of a free stand-alone product and as a fee-based integrated enterprise-class solution.

It transforms learning into a media-rich interactive experience where students, teachers, parents and administrators can work together to enhance student achievement.

Schoology is used by millions of students and educators in K-12 schools and universities round the globe. In an instance, the firm assisted Palo Alto, a unified school district with their legacy LMS. They ran into roadblocks and witnessed that the previous LMS that they were working with had a server crash that resulted in loss of data. The school district decided that it was the right time to adopt a new LMS to enhance the functionality of their system. The client wanted a cloud-based system that was user friendly, facilitating online discussions, and which allows teachers to push resources—from links and PDF documents to videos and photos—to students. With Schoology’s LMS, the implementation process and the import of data ran smoothly from the district’s student information system. Teachers also found that Schoology has significantly increased their ability to be effective in the classroom and has improved communication between students, teachers, and parents.

Riding on such success stories, Schoology solutions will further be committed to K-12 education, assisting educators in the classrooms, and helping students reach their full potential. The success of the company has been dictated by their customer base and they stand willing to bring any additional concepts to life for the benefit of the education community. For its next step, Schoology envisages to improve education outcomes in each and every effort to help students learn and achieve in tomorrow’s world.
