bad system, terribly organized
Schoology seems like a great app to use for school & everything going on this year especially with COVID-19, but is it really? All the students are having a hard time trying to figure out everything with it. The due dates are too small, you can’t delete submissions you didn’t mean to send, very unorganized, and doesn’t say the assignment are done even after you submit your response. This is a terrible way to have many students focus on school. The courses you are in show up alphabetically and not in order, which can be very stressful and hard on students who like to be organized or have OCD and need to have it a specific way. The notifications are on the home screen of the app, instead they should have each class, like google classroom, with the due date and time, so you can click the assignment and it’s easy. The folders in the course class are also very hard to understand. Instead of all the assignments popping up you should just be able to click a certain folder and open it and get what you need. Also, when submitting a Google Document or a Word assignment, the assignment gets all messed up when submitted, which can ruin your students grade. This school year, needs to be organized & easy, for all our online, in school, & hybrid students. This is not an organized app for any school to use. Too messy for anyone. Even the teachers are confused on everything. Terrible app. Not recommended.

Good app, but a few bugs
The website of Schoology is very good. It is useful for school, especially during coronavirus quarantine because we have to learn from home. However, the app is not as good as the website. When I check the notifications, it doesn’t show me the new ones. Even after refreshing, it still just shows the old notifications. Then, after it finally shows me the new ones, the “notifications” section still has a red dot on it. (Even after the most recent update) When I close the app, it still says that there are a bunch of notifications. I also have trouble accessing links sometimes. Also, when a link actually works, the website it goes to always shows up in a pop-up. It never shows up in an actual browser. Another problem is that it takes forever to upload a video, which is a problem when I’m trying to submit a recorded project. A summary of my review: The website is great, but the app needs some bug fixes. Edit: Most of the links work, but there are still a few that don’t work. I’m still having problems with the notifications. When I checked the app this morning, it said that I had over 50 notifications. I did the same things: open notifications, refresh, go back to home page, refresh, go back to notifications, refresh. I repeated this process several times and I think I refreshed the page about 10 times, but there were still 50. I had to restart my iPad and then refresh 3 more times to get rid of that 50. There is still 1.

Not sure…
I’m a student and we use schoology in class. Schoology does good things like keep all of our work together but it has SO SO SO many bugs, malfunctions (we’ve had times where the app was down for a day so we couldn’t access our work) and I can tell it really stresses out the teachers and my fellow classmates. There’s always something wrong. There was once an entire week when the app didn’t work so we would have to use the website which is laggy. Schoology has good intentions, but mixed with the lags it depends what type of person you are. It’s not my schools choice to use schoology and even our principal doesn’t really like it. I don’t know how the elementarys in our district use this. It’s too complicated sometimes. I understand the developers probably spent a lot of work on this and I respect that because I’m not very good at coding myself and it has soOOOO many features on this app… when there’s not bugs this app can make my work a lot easier to access. I will say though, when I was forced to be virtual during quarantine and all we had besides zoom and email was schoology, it was very stressful for me (it makes me very scared that we might have to go back virtual and I’m going have to rely on schoology again..) But other than that id say that if schoology just worked on it’s bugs a little bit this app could be great for districts. :)

Bad system, worse app
Schoology itself is a poorly designed system that attempts to turn what ought to be like a project management system into a friendly Facebook like interface, resulting in a system that is bad at being either. It is confusing and difficult for students and parents to navigate and actually know what needs to be done when. This is largely because it doesn’t enforce any standardized input from teachers, because it isolated courses from each other too much, and for parents, because they have to navigate to each student and then within each student to each course in a way that far too often requires two steps. For example, clicking on “courses” seems to open a page, but it’s really just a modal. So the user thinks that after selecting a course, they can click back to get to the courses list. Instead, you go back to the page before. The iOS app makes all this worse because it’s not a true native app, it’s a custom web browser that wraps the website. It cannot, however, display certain kinds of content internally like the website can. It tells you the content is unavailable. Most of it you can actually get to if you zoom in and find the external link, but this is very poor UI design. I would recommend school systems not spend the enormous amount of money this system must cost. As for the rest of us - we’re stuck with the schools’ bad decision, but you’re slightly better off going to a computer and avoiding the app whenever possible.

So many things need to change
Now I know kids are rating this app 1 start so they don’t have to use it anymore but I really don’t like the website/app. 1 for your school to have schoology you have to pay, when you could use google classroom for free. 2 website is always crashing, no matter how good my WiFi is or how many People are trying to get on at one time we have all experienced schoology to not load and not work. 3 although it is nice that you can organize with folder and folders in folders it takes way to long to get to something if you do that, I suggest that after the assignment has been completed it goes away and there should be a tap under all classes saying “all materials” and change the one that is all materials now to “assigned” it would be so much easier to get to things. 4 when you open an assignment and hit “my document” it is sooo small, I don’t know if I’m typing correctly and I can’t see what the question is asking it is so annoying. 5 overdue/missing assignments needs to get better, if something is overdue or almost overdue and I haven’t turned it in of course I like to get an email saying “THIS IS ALMOST DUE” instead of “mr. _____ has updated schoology. Also, sometimes I have something overdue and I know I do, and it’s not even on the “overdue”board. Very poor way to have missing assignments. There are many more reasons, schoology please look at these reviews and try and fix it because if you didn’t already know the app only has 1 star.

An “app”, ha ha
I used all of my dang right information in this app. I double checked it to see any mistakes or errors, and saw none. So then I did all the other information stuff to get in to Schoology, but I come to a glitchy white screen that doesn’t take me anywhere. I needed the app for an assignment on my phone, because I tried to get an example of something so I could get help with my assignment. But I clicked example, and it said I needed to download the schoology app. I went to the App Store. When I saw schoology it had a 1.4 rating. I just downloaded this app without seeing any reviews. So I did my right information, then went back to the schoology place and it said I still needed to get the app. I wouldn’t actually call this a “learning material”, or an “app”. I would call it a trashy scam that needs to be fixed. Just make a HUGE update, like fixing how glitchy the app is, and etc. I un-downloaded the app, and so it was very hard to do my assignment. I had to have two computers in my face looking at a different one about every couple seconds. If the schoology app works, my assignment would’ve been a breeze. So don’t download this app. It’s a waist of you’re phone storage. So just use a, computer because it’s a million times better than the app. And it’s confusing to get on to. Probably we should create a new app that has a big similarity to schoology. But in the mean time, I’m going to call this app a piece of hot garbage, crap, and a scam.

It’s okay I guess but has a lot of bugs and issues…
I’m a student that uses this app to access schoolwork and school related things, but sometimes this app can be very stressful to access. I am trying to access this at home to try to catch up on any missing work and assignments that I have to finish or am trying to complete, and this app is giving me a hard time trying to log into my Schoology account from home. I’m trying to finish an assignment but I can’t seem to log into my Schoology account, so this means my work is going to have to be late. I’m already having a tough time trying to figure this app how and how it works and it’s not giving me the best time. This needs to be easier to access not for just me but for Parents, Teachers, and for just other students I can’t log into my account and that is a very big problem. Not just this the app has just other issues in general, this app has so many different kinds of bugs and other things. One time my class could not do their work and the app just would not work, this was not just stressing to me this was also stressing to other students, and teachers. The teachers were getting very stressed and worried because on this same day the printers were not working, so this caused us to be behind on a lesson and students weren’t able to complete their work. This app needs some fixing, not in a rude way but this app could be so much better.

Really isn’t that bad at all!
As a student I use Schoology ALL the time. Sure, it’s not the BEST. But I simply disagree with all the one star ratings. It is so helpful, I will tell you how, If a student is ever falling behind they can just check into Schoology and they can see what they might need to ask for help with and what not. It also helps with getting things turned so they aren’t overdue and then you get a zero. But I do see why people may disagree but, I have reasons why it’s not that bad as people are saying it is. Heres why: First, you may not be able to do a lot on an iPhone because it isn’t really programmed for iPhones to do like assignments and stuff so that could be part of the glitches and stuff. Second, you may not get any like assignments if your school doesn’t use it, so don’t even bother trying to get this app. Third, it is AWESOME because I don’t get notifications on my school laptop, so I can just turn on my notifications for my phone and I will get everything I need to know such as: sports, assignments, and even announcements from the head school boarder! Well I hope after reading this I changed your perspective just a little bit! - a formal 6th grader who uses Schoology

Might be biased, but...
Aside from how unorganized the app is, the features it lacks, and how the Home Screen resembles Facebook, I want to talk about “bugs.” Are they bugs? I don’t know. So, I don’t get email if I get a missing assignment, nor is there a menu to see any missing assignments, which needs to be added. However, my parents get an email pretty much right after the assignment is declared late. And here’s another thing: the way schoology counts missing assignments is weird. If an assignment hasn’t been graded EVEN IF THE ASSIGNMENT ISN’T DUE YET, my parents get an email about it, and it adds all sorts of confusion. And in a time where I have to work pretty much exclusively using schoology during the pandemic, it adds all sorts of unnecessary stress. Another thing with the app, when you open another page, like a course, calendar, etc. That’s like opening a new tab in a browser. So if I accidentally miss click, there’s another 30 seconds of waiting because even though I have pretty decent WiFi, schoology servers are being overloaded because of terrible optimization for students. Definitely nitpicking on that, but it needs to be overstated. I know this review will get another automated response and the devs will do nothing about it, but maybe if we spam the app with bad reviews, it will hopefully be removed, and that’s what I’m going for. I hate this app, I have no idea why my school district adopted it. Thank you for listening to my Ted Talk.

Perfect for its intended purpose
I think that many of the reviews were written by misinformed individuals thinking that this app should be their sole tool to help them work through the semester. This is a fantastic app. It is NOT an app where you should be completing and turning in every assignment, and expecting it to work flawlessly. It is meant to be a helpful mobile tool to help find out what due dates are coming up, introduce you to newly posted assignments, and submit documents in a pinch. And for those purposes the app works fantastic. If you need to see the due dates neatly lined out for you, this is perfect. You would not expect to transfer money to a relative through your simple mobile banking app, but you may need to quickly check your bank balance, in which case a mobile app is perfect. This is not a full Schoology interface. You will need to have a laptop or desktop where you are working through the vast majority of your assignments, and this can be accomplished simply with a 100$ chrome book. Do not be misinformed this is by no means a full computer software, and the developers surely know this. This is a fantastic app, and it is even easier than the full website for many purposes. 5 stars.

Terribly unorganized
I know that a lot of kids have rated apps like these with bad reviews and 1 star because they don’t like school, but trust me I’m being serious schoology is so much worse then google classroom. If you are a school district reading this and considering getting this, DONT it is such a hassle. There are so many reasons not to get schoology so I’m only going to list a few of them. First of all, you cannot unsubmit anything. Once you submit it’s in there for good and you can’t change it. You can submit another attachment but that’s still confusing for the teachers when they are grading. Anyways it’s super annoying. Next, school districts have to pay for this while they can just use google classroom instead. It’s not worth the money. Do not make the same mistake my school district did: sign a THREE YEAR contract with schoology. Not to mention all of the teachers hate it as well. Lastly, it has SO. MANY. BUGS. it can barely load. And if your school has a lot of kids in it like mine does (3000 to be exact) then it will take forever to load because so many of us are on it all at the same time. I hope you take my advise and not get schoology. I definitely recommend google classroom instead and sorry this was so long. Thank you for reading what I have to say about schoology if you made it this far. 😁✌️

good but some issues
I’m a student, I’m not giving this app 3 stars because I hate school, I’m giving this app 3 stars because it makes it difficult to do school. First off, the amount of times that I have submitted pictures of assignments through the Schoology app and they just VANISH is unacceptable and shows me this app is dysfunctional. There have been too many occasions when this happens (like every couple of days) and I end up getting marked down for “not turning in everything” when really it’s the app glitching. Second, this is not necessarily a problem with the app but with the website. In the create tab, there has been a couple of instances where I’m typing something long or detailed and I mis-click ONE KEY and all my work is gone. There’s no back button and if you use that key board shortcut (I forgot what it is) and you have pressed another key, say goodbye to your work, it’s not coming back. Lastly, while this isn’t a huge problem for me, I know it’s a problem for the teachers. On your website, Schoology goes down way too many times. While us students are excited to not do work for a bit, it messes up the teachers schedule and puts us behind. Thank you for reading my review and I hope that these problems get fixed ASAP.

Terrible version of Schoology
I’m not writing this because I hate school or whatever. This is genuinely a terrible app. My reasoning? Well for starters half of the stuff on the web browser isn’t even on this app. I had to join a meeting for school because ✨covid✨ and I couldn’t join. I was 5 minutes late thanks to your app because apparently links don’t show up so after trying to figure that out I had to go to the web browser and get on from there. I blame that on y’all. The link was there and working but not on this app. My computer has issues all the time so I have to use my phone and iPad to do schoolwork and I downloaded the app to try and speed stuff up. Terrible mistake on my end. More things. Submitting stuff is a joke to be honest. It takes like 14 hours to submit anything (if it does submit) and it’s so finicky. With google docs it is terrible because if you don’t submit it one of two ways no one can see it or access it. It is terrible with transferring links/pictures especially from other apps and the bugs are ridiculous. It is sooooo unorganized and I have to go back and forth to find one class. The only good thing about this app is that I can get onto Schoology immediately vs using the web browser, and I’d almost rather do that. FIX THE APP OR TAKE IT OFF ITS PRACTICALLY USELESS

Terrible design
My teacher assigned me this at the start of this school year and it’s to say the least, terrible. Last year we used google classroom and everything was so easily accessible and you could see anything, and it would be displayed in a simple and understandable manner. Schoology on the other hand is a true hassle. If you submit an assignment it still displays it in your To Do list so it’s always confusing and hard to know whether I turned something in or not. Submitting assignments is so annoying and arguous as well. It always requires you to submit something online even if the assignment is done and turned in by hand. It should allow you to submit an assignment whether or not you have a document uploaded, not all assignments are done online. Also, to upload a document you have to go through so much work, on google classroom you would just have to choose whether it was a doc or another type of file, on this you have to go through several screens just to access google drive. In conclusion, the design is terrible. It’s so hard to access and upload documents, and it’s not very versatile, the only type of assignments you can somewhat submit with it is something from google docs. A lousy step backwards from google classroom is all this thing is.

Terrible for students and parents
This app is not a solution. It is just another hurdle, difficult to use, and that is not what parents need most during a frickin pandemic. THIS IS NOT A SOLUTION. It’s a hot mess. It’s seemingly based on the Facebook wall, which works when people are posting puppies and food pics, but not for students and something as basic as having a single place to see all assignments due and upcoming tests. We already have something that works the way we need: a grid. With columns. Radical, right? A page that is just a grid of what’s due and when. No, instead we get a wall where everything is poured in, kitchen sink and all, and we have to scroll and pick and hunt and search for something we should see on a macro level. If the teacher isn’t great updating, then parents are really hosed. Each time I open this stupid app (which requires parent’s to sign a Terms of Service akin to Facebook, where they are CLEARLY sharing or selling student data... and the argument that there is such a thing an NII is laughable these days) I am frustrated. This app is frustrating. It’s poorly designed, it is a whole new way for kids to get lost and fall behind... and for parents trying to help and keep up? it offers no help. This is a bad app. This is a company with a questionable TOS regarding children’s privacy. It’s the wrong choice. Period.

A Decent App
I am a teacher and have been using the schoology app with my classroom set of iPads for several years now. Overall I have to say it has done a good job. I love the test/quiz feature, which allows me to get instant data on student learning so I can then take action armed with realtime knowledge of where the gaps are in student learning. My only complaints are with the updates. Most of the time I don’t even notice the updates because they make improvements. However, there have been a few instances where an app update felt more like a downgrade. One such update just came out. In the previous version when you opened links within a course, the link would open in a full page window. With the latest update the links are now loading in a mini window about half the size of the screen. So far, I have been unsuccessful in finding a way to make them full screen. This mini window makes viewing materials linked in schoology much more cumbersome as you are forced scroll to see different parts of the page. In addition, if you try to move the window around the screen it often triggers a refresh, which can erase work. I am not a fan of the update, but the overall app I really appreciate.

Yeah drunk elephant would have much to do maybe too much for the brand drunk elephant buy some today and you’ll get a free car anyway I was just telling my Besty, so Janeiro and I was just like what is this apps deal cause they’re like baddies first of all and then they’re like really really not good so I was like that’s that’s not good but it’s not good and then she was like well girl I think you’re kind of a baddie too and I was like I am not your body and then we got a big argument and then she left and then I was talking to my friend Brianna and I was like have you seen this app? It’s so bad, and she was like yeah just like your bad dragon breath and then I was like well. Your breath is kind of stinky as is and then she was like I don’t know anyway, I’m glad I really I’m glad I gave you another review and you’re my besties so like bye see ya!

From a parents point of view.
As a parent, I am so disappointed by this app. The concept of this app is unacceptable. It’s unreliable and extremely unorganized. First off, the layout and organization of the app is just terrible. It makes it extremely difficult to read and understand the material given. It’s always such a hassle to first find the things I’m looking for. To add on to this, the app is constantly down. Whenever I go into the app, it always has nice some sort of issue going on. The content never loads and the app itself crashes when being in the app for short periods of time. I wanted to let you know it isn’t my WiFi nor do device I’m using it on. My phone is in very good condition and I’ve only had it for a couple months now. Im for-sure it has no bugs or viruses, and my WiFi is very strong and reliable. I’ve talked to professionals about this topic and they’ve always replied with, “it’s the app, not your WiFi”. To add on, my kids have had much trouble with this app. This includes posting, viewing, and finding information posted by their teachers. I’ve tried google classroom and it’s so much more organized and overall a better app. Once again i am extremely disappointed in this app. Do better next time. You’re truly, Debbie Miller

Bad app overall
Hello, I am an 11th grader. I have been using Schoology for school for probably about 2 1/2 years now. Last year, my school made it mandatory that my teacher give tests and quizzes and some assignments from here. With COVID, we have been using it more than ever. Although it is amazing we are able to do this, this app is messed up. First of all, some assignments for me my teachers can’t see, back in 9th grade when I had to redo a whole week long lab, and my AP US History binder check for a unit. Furthermore, sometimes Schoology crashes. Last week for my AP Bio class, we were supposed to have a test on Wednesday. Guess what??? She couldn’t post it and it was delayed to Monday. Instead of what I was hoping to be a chill break turned into me studying for my test. This is not my teachers fault. It is not my fault. We, especially the teachers who are doing so much already with reinventing learning, are sick of this. I hope Schoology improves A LOT because if it doesn’t, Canva, which has WAY better ratings, is right next door. This application isn’t the worst thing and I understand how so many people are suffering way worse than me right now, but I thought I’d add to your pile of rotten reviews. I’ll give you a 2 because you aren’t the worst thing in the world.

New update broke the app
I mainly use Schoology on mobile since my iPad is lighter than my school computer and I can’t carry too much weight on my back and it was working great for the two years I’ve used it until the newest update. The Google drive resource app is completely busted on mobile and wouldn’t let me submit any other file since it “couldn’t read the file” but worked fine on the computer (even tho I triple checked that my Google account was synced on mobile). The Google assignments feature also got destroyed in the update, pulling up a broken web version of Schoology that says “access denied” even though once again, I am fully signed into my Google account. I am essentially forced to use my bulky and heavy school computer because they made the app unusable. Schoology, fix this. You have so many students that rely on this app to do their schoolwork and this new “bug fixing” update is preventing them from doing that. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because there are already so many troll accounts trying to get the app deleted from the App Store just cuz they don’t want to do their work but I genuinely need this app to change.

Disappointed!
Im a student and my school requires Schoology to be used as the main program for distance learning. The website is always down or crashed for hours a day and am unable to access a lot of my work in the meantime. Also notifications from Schoology come way later than the posted time by the teacher. For example my teacher will post an assignment at 1pm but I won’t get the notification for it till 5pm. Good thing I check it every hour to avoid this, but most kids won’t. Update: I get no notifications at all from the Schoology app. Also, something I discovered is that I am not able to remove submissions from being submitted. Sometimes, my assignment does not import properly and it shows “revision 1” and I have no option to delete it and re-submit. Instead, once I re-submit it shows as “revision 2” and the teacher has to go through revision 1 first to get to revision 2 and see the proper assignment. It wastes time for them and is a inconvenience for me as well. I also do not like that the portfolios are not available in the app. Sometimes I need to check my portfolios and have to long in through safari on my phone. It is time consuming and is stupid if I need to check just one thing in my portfolio....

Terrible for a parent managing multiple children
When my school district had to change to online learning in 2 days last spring thanks to Covid, they quickly switched to google classroom. While it had its learning curve, within just one week I had figured out how to manage my 4 children in 3 different levels (elementary, middle, h.s) via the “to do” page. I could check from my phone or computer and know in a glance whether my kids were staying on track. This year put district switched to Schoology and I’m having a HORRIBLE time. The “feed” clutters out the visibility of any upcoming assignments. Submitting assignments is clunky and not intuitive or flexible (now to submit a photo of a completed paper takes 5 steps instead of 2). Maybe my mind is more traditional— I hate Facebook because it isn’t neat or orderly/you never know when you’re “done.” Modeling a learning management app off of Facebook seems like a mismatch and the messiness of it shows (endless feed of interaction crowding out the “upcoming assignments” section so you can’t even see what’s incomplete.) We should have stuck with google classroom and I’m so angry they messed with a good thing. Any school districts checking this out, take it from a parent and stay away!

Utter garbage. DO NOT USE
This app and the website itself are terrible in terms of interaction and, well, pretty much everything. The website and app can not handle more than 20 people on it without the website running tremendously slow, thus causing problems with online classes, such as not being able to do assignments, turn in work, submitting answers, etc. Not to mention the headache of just looking at the website. If you are a teacher at a school, wondering if you should use this for your class, DO NOT. The interface is not user friendly, and is clustered with random things when in reality students will not spend much time on this website at all, if any. And when they do, they are only in maybe two tabs, the courses dashboard, and recent activity tab. You’d think it could do at least one thing right, like sending out notifications that your teachers have sent a message, or something along those lines. Nope. Often times it does not send notifications at all, causing confusion, and when it does, it tends to do it 5-10 minutes after the message was originally sent. All in all, if I worked at Apple and could remove this from the App Store, I would.

point of view from a student
Everyday I go to log into my schoology account it takes me a good ten minutes to load, and then I have to wait for the home screen to load, and after that I have to wait for my class to load so. A good 30 minutes later i'm finally able to start my first assignment of the day, I have around 8-10 assignments every day so waiting 30 minutes for a screen to load isn’t necessarily efficient. Not to mention but our education system put all of our work on this terrible app that glitches out, un-submits half of my assignments, glitches me out of tests and then I'm not able to get back into them. Schoology is the reason i'm doing so bad over distance learning, all of the teachers just think I flunked the test and want to retake it when I email them all because this terrible app keeps glitching. The saddest part about this review is that I put everything very lightly, this app is actually so bad I'm having trouble putting it into words. Also i just want to add after reading other people’s reviews I don't want schoology to get taken down but my experience with this app is very bad but that’s just my experience and you might have a better one than me!

Bad app, worse organization.
Hello, my school has been using Schoology for years, and every year it has been the same problems. An app like Facebook attempting to be “Educational.” This causes many problems because Facebook was made for talking, and getting together, not uploading assignments for students. So combining the two ideas would be a mess. One example of this is the “courses.” Tab. The courses tab is hard to navigate through unless you change the order of the icons, and if you don’t know how to do that you’re gonna have a hard time getting around, and get this, close to no instructions are given on how to do that. Another reason I gave this app one star is the group feature, it’s just plain useless. Nobody really uses it besides clubs, and even then it’s just a mini course. Another problem I have with this app, is the lack of dark mode. A lot of students have to stay up late and having a blaring white light in your eyes when you try to do literally anything. It might just be mine and my friends opinions but the interface hurts, no exaggeration. I hope this will help the app improve somewhat, and give some guidance for adding or removing features.

Schoology is fine.
That’s about the best praise I can give it. My public school system switched from Google Classroom to this platform for hybrid learning this year because of the feature where they can track users’ exact time and activity on the app (a bit Big Brother-y for me, but okay). The web version works. The design overall is terrible, but it does what it needs to. This app, however, not so much. My teachers have regularly added embedded slides and documents to the updates section of the program, which just simply don’t show up on the app. The video conferencing is another big issue - we use it regularly, and it’s nowhere to be seen on the app. Honestly, don’t even waste your time downloading and setting this up when it works perfectly fine on Safari. To the developers of Schoology: make the web version and the iOS app the same. It’s extremely frustrating to not be able to see conferences and certain updates on my iPad that my classmates are seeing on their laptops, and I’ve been late to classes and missing assignments because of it.

Cant even log in
I tried both ways to log in and it never worked. Since it automatically signed me in on my school chromebook I can review the website on computers. First of all it looks kind of boring. I’m not saying google classroom looked more interesting, but this one is so boring. If this is going to be used for kids they should make it look at least a little more colorful or something! My school just started using this so no one really knows how it works yet, we still need practice, but there were no instructions for how it worked. If I’m going to have to press so many buttons just to turn in a single assignment, there should be atleast some tutorial or guide or something. Google classroom was straightforward and everything was right there. You didn’t have to click so many buttons just to get to one thing. Most of my teachers have already had problems with it. Some of them haven’t been able to put in assignments, haven’t been able to grade assignments, and some haven’t been able to view assignments at all! I don’t understand why we ever switched to schoology. Google classroom worked just fine

Dear Schoology and WCS board
A year ago, a review was written that shows up in the forefront when viewing this app on the appstore. It is a one star review and brings up so many relevant criticisms. However, this review was written an entire YEAR ago and we still experience the exact same problems with the system as a whole. Williamson County Schools, like many counties, have chosen to rely on Schoology and Zoom in combination in order to teach us remotely. Why is it that- even after being provided so much responsibility and opportunity- Schoology still refuses to rework the clunky and outdated formatting? Us students need a reliable and easy to maneuver system in order to cause the least amount of issues during an already stressful and issue-ridden time. So- to Schoology- listen to what your users have to say, we didn’t choose to use your system, but you can choose to make it easier; and to WCS, stop trying to force us to go back in person when there is no reason to. If the need is due to counseling, keep the counseling open for in person- which would allow for a better focus on assistance over education anyways. Sincerely, a distressed student and citizen.

George
I was using this app because my school forces me too, I went to the bathroom and the intercom announced that "he's back" and I was scared and I started to shake because I knew who "he" was, "he" is George Floyd. I heard screaming within a moments notice and then complete silence like George wiped out an entire classroom all on his own. The sounds were becoming louder and louder, drawing closer every second until... I heard a foot enter the restroom and a voice saying "momma... I can't breathe" at this point I was fearing for my life and I was violently shaking. I put my legs up so hopefully he wouldn't see me, but I was too late George Floyd found me and started banging on the bathroom door screaming "Momma!!" | started praying for my safety and all of a sudden Derek Chauvin came into the bathroom and wrestled George Floyd and after a long struggle finally got his knee on George's neck, George started screaming hysterically saying "momma. J I can't breathe, momma" and finally after a minute or so, George was defeated. I was finaly able to go back to class with a traumatic event. Stay safe out there guys.

Suggestions
The overall app is okay. It’s a bit disorganized, however it is understand due to the fact that if has a lot all on one website/app. However there are a few suggestions I would like to make. For starters when a student submits their assignment in stead of just have the “on time” there should be a green check or a little symbol to represent that it has been submitted. As a student myself I get a lot of anxiety when handing in work and a symbol would be reassuring. Secondly, when a student is done with an assignment, it should be removed from the upcoming area. It could be externally confusing. Either take it out or put a check showing that it has been done. Lastly (this more or person suggestions) even though it may seem like it’s not a big deal, but allowing students to customize it seem pretty cool. No offense to the designers but it’s kinda ugly, which might make some students unmotivated. The option to make is cool, might make us students like to website more. And yeah, that about it.

Google Classroom is 1000% better.
Majority of the time I can’t even do work without a school issued laptop because of this app/site. I’ve gotten help countless times but no matter what I can never log in through the app. It takes forever to load the site and when it does load, I have to wait again for my login to be accepted in order to enter Schoology. Why can’t schools switch back to Google Classroom? Schoology overall is limited for the dumbest reasons. You can’t take back your assignments and the PDF’s have to be downloaded but if you’re using an issued laptop then 90% of the time you should give up. The laptops given have their disk full which makes me unable to download any PDF but if this were google classroom, I’d be able to create a document through the “Create a document” area. On random days Schoology will decide to not let me in. It continues to say error and failed to connect when nothing’s wrong. The site overall is hard to track and the design is flawed. If I could give 0 stars, I would. Schools just want to give their students a harder time, I suppose.

Disappointed in this app.
This app is one of the worst school based apps I have ever experienced. As a student, I dread logging on to this website everyday. First of all, this app is poorly organized. I can never find any of my work though all of the folders you provide. Even my teachers have told me they hated the program and can’t put in grades. Specifically, I can never find my assignments, or attach anything. It can be very frustrating when you still can’t find anything after 3 quarters of school. I still can’t get my way around Schoology. Secondly, your app always has technical difficulties. For example, I can never see my grades. When I look through them, an asterisk comes up. Imagine waiting weeks for your grade to come up. I am always so frustrated and it makes school so much harder. This is unacceptable. Third of all, the app is always down. I can never get my assignments done in time because I can’t even get onto Schoology. Theses three problems are just a few of all of the flaws you have. Major improvements need to be added onto Schoology. I have never encountered an app through school as poorly as this one.

Garbage of an “app”
This “app” has some of the most bugs I’ve ever experienced and to get schoolwork turned in is even a question. I’m a student in Texas and we use this dumb app for school especially right now during coronavirus and it doesn’t know wether I turned it an assignment in or not. I will click submit and it won’t even submit it even after it says that it has been submitted so I end up redoing the entire assignment and getting stupid zeros in the grade book because they can’t even submit a dumb assignment. And another thing, there is a toolbar at the side with three lines and every time I scroll DOWN (not to the SIDE) on an assigned that thing pulls up and takes over the whole screen so I have to go all the way back to the assignment because there is no way to go from that toolbar thing back to the assignment. Simple bug fixes people. I’m not sorry to say that you should tell your teachers to get some other app that has some kind of simple bug fix and also tell them not to get this app if I haven’t said that already.

Absolute trash
My school switched from google classroom to Schoology and it is the most unconventional website/app I have ever chosen. The design of it is almost archaic and it is very difficult to navigate. Some problems: turning in assignments are very difficult. The process of importing files is extremely annoying, and many google form assignments do not mark the assignment as done so it looks like we didn’t do the assignment. Additionally, during class many teachers require us to have multiple tabs with several assignments at the same time. Unlike google classroom, it does not automatically open assignments in new tabs so I find myself constantly clicking back and forth between pages. Finding assignments and resources is also very difficult. Unless I know the exact folder or tab it is in, I end up needing to spend a long time just navigating assignments. The app itself won’t even let me log in even if I have my log in information but even then it’s very deification for me to stay updated with assignments and notifications from teachers. I have nothing positive to say... :(

Not my favorite
I use schoology at my school over Google classroom. I like schoology a lot because I can access my grades easily and it’s really nice to see if I miss any assignments. The website on my Chromebook is nicely organized. It’s a great site to use. Though I like schoology a lot, it could improve. For example, I’ve been trying to log in on mobile for a while but cannot because there is no SSO for mobile and that’s an inconvenience. I would enjoy schoology even more if it had an SSO method with Google on mobile. Otherwise, schoology is a Great Site. It’s user friendly, grades are accessed easily, classes are nice and organized (I love how you can reorder them!) and all in all I really like schoology. I just with it would sync better to Powerschool though :( Schoology is Great! I Like using this platform a lot. It’s helped me be more productive as a student and helps my parents access my grades easier. I hope it improves even more!

Useful but so bad
Because this is where almost all of my school stuff is, I do have to use this app. And I am able to find most of my assignments here, so thats why the two stars are there. I just hate how you can’t edit notification settings! Add a system where you can turn off notifications for certain types of things, like student responses on certain posts or specific posts from other classes. Additionally, there are some things that deserve notifications! I only get a notification from a teacher if they post something on the main page, which none of them do (also that would be so disorganized because of the current pandemic going on), so I always have to check everything to see if there’s something new in every folder. I use this app A LOT, so this takes up so much time for me. Aside from that though, this app is mediocre. Some things feel clunky when going through the app, but I don’t really care about that. It’s just the loading issues that everyone here is complaining about. Just stop being your own browser.

Clean things up and improve
Clean things up, have an icon or text that says turned in or not turned in so it can be easier, organize things and make it more kid friendly, and also make it simpler for example how is someone supposed to know to press the blue text at the top when there something you have to open or there is like a link and for the different things teacher assign to you in this app you could have little text saying what course or class it’s from and when you open course make it so it only shows the assignments from it and not from other courses. Then show all the assignments on the main page. Also sometimes when o ha e something overdue it doesn’t even pop up on the thing where overdue stuff is. The website crashes a lot as well and the emails are pointless like I don’t care if they updated Schoology U could just tell me when something is overdue, when something is turned in, and what the teacher actually posted on there. Aight I said what needed to be said

It gets the job done, but not well
It is ok when looking at it without actually using it. When you are an actual student using this it is horrible. I have not met a student that uses this that enjoys it. Pros: It shows all of you let assignments and when they are due. It puts all of said assignments on a calendar. Cons: Just about everything else. Including but not limited to: It doesn’t actually show you overdue work unless you change that in the settings. The amount of digging you have to do to find some things in the grade book is crazy. There are many aspects of the app that are never used. If the work assigned wasn’t put as an assignment it won’t show up on overdue or the calendar making it impossible to know when it has been graded, not to mention if you forgot the due date you have to learn the due date the hard way: by turning it in late. And when looking at a teachers prospective it is very overwhelming, even if they only assign 1 thing to all of their students it shows it as 160 ungraded assignments. It is so confusing that in my school district that 2nd grade and below teachers are barred from even using it with their students. If it is too confusing for second graders, then it shouldn’t be used at all. That is barely even a scratch at the surface. I might be a little biased but still, this is an app that has a confusing interface with some weird aspects overall. Not putting this on the devs, they obviously worked very hard. But there is just a lot to fix.

Honest feedback?
So my school switched from Blackboard to Schoology this year for the hybrid learning option; two school days and three online days. I’ve always liked Blackboard better because the layout is very simple and it’s easy to access/find things. The theme colors are also very pleasing to the eye. White is a very bright color and I wish Schoology had a dark mode option. The layout is also quite messy and hard to organize things. I do like how you can submit assignments directly through Schoology though. I wish there was a function where when you submit an assignment it has a check mark next to it and when you submit the assignment it checks it off. This would save a lot of time because I have to frequently check which assignments I did. I guess it takes time to get used ton things so overall it’s a pretty good platform. Remember that this feedback is coming from a 7th grade middle school student so I’m trying to be as honest as possible.

Horrible
My school decided to use Schoology for homeschool this year and they made a horrible mistake. Most of the homeschool are having this problem: we would turn in work and the teacher would not get it. It would say completed with a check mark and everything and the teacher would only get a few assignments. Almost all of the homeschool students are getting the same problem with different subjects. My problem particularly is in Literature. I always double and sometimes triple check that I have done EVERYTHING in that week on Friday and somehow the teacher does not get it. If you are a school, DO NOT put your students through this stress. I am getting bad grades due to this stupid app. And to you, Schoology creators, you should be ashamed of putting students, parents, and teachers through this stress. I am honestly surprised at how horrible this app is. How could anybody give this app any stars? If I could, I would give this app ZERO stars. Yes, I am only twelve in 7th grade, but I am extremely disappointed, and so are my classmates and family.

Not truly functional
This app is a piece of crap compared to the website. Once in a while it logs me out and I have to move heaven and earth to log back in again. It is RIDICULOUS. Nobody should have to open their bulky laptop everytime they want to check their grades for two minutes. Nobldy wants to spend half an hour re-logging back in every few months. I have no idea why the “Stay logged-in” function even exists if after a few months you are going to be logged out. I mean, come on, this app has ONE (point 6) stars. Its CLEAR no one is trying to improve it. Everybody just give it a bad rating and delete it so that MAYBE someone will notice. I was trying to respond to the discussion boards as my schools “attendance” during this quarantine. I was not able to because the app kept saying I am not connected to the internet (I have 3 bars LTE, so that was wrong) and would take 5 times as long to load everything. It would crash every time I wanted to see my grades for any class, and would not display new information posted that day. Already deleted the app. Unacceptable.

A headache to try to use
I took me 2 days to figure out how to switch between my students. Oh, it's not under the 'my children' tab. There isn't anything under there, actually. Nothing is found easily. My son is at the high school now & I haven't figured out how to add the new campus to my 'buildings' list. Nope, it doesn't automatically happen. I have all notifications set to 'on' for email & app notifications & I have yet to receive one. There is no 'parent view' to be able to see what is going on in chronological order. You have to view each item as your student. So you have to check each class, for each student. And the 'courses' tab does not scroll down so you can actually only see the top 5 courses. So I hope you don't need those other 2 for anything!! I hated this app last year & now that my kids are at different campuses I hate it even more!! The website is less ridiculous, but seriously, why have an app at all if it's such a pile of 💩?? I'm on an iPhone X with the latest operating system & my app is updated. Stick with the website if you must use Schoology.

upset
I’m going to try to be as constructive as possible but to be honestly I’m very frustrated with both the app and the website in general. There is no way to un-submit assignments unless your teacher attaches a student template of a document for you- for example I had to turn in a video that I had supposedly cropped to exclude me turning the camera on and off, but it didn’t show up cropped in the video and there’s no going back. The second issue I have is the upcoming or to-do list. It never removes assignments when you submit them and I have to go back and click through the millions of folders to check whether I’ve done it, and this costs me a lot of time that I don’t have. Additionally, it leads to me forgetting about things that I do need to do. The third thing is that it’s not very reliable. When the servers crash, I can’t work because all my Zoom links (which are my only way of accessing the meetings, we don’t have meeting IDs and passcodes) and assignments are on there. Please fix these things. If you did this would be a much more pleasant to use app.

Very efficient
This app actually helps me so much especially when I do not have access to my computer to get on the website and when I need to submit a photo or video. I have noticed that a lot of kids are giving this app one star reviews so that it will be taken off the AppStore which will not even solve anything so I don’t know why they are doing that. They will still have to use the website for school work. And honestly it is just very inconsiderate because many other people including me find it very useful. It is so much easier to upload photos and videos to the app rather than the website because computer image quality is horrible and transferring a photo from my phone to my computer is a hassle. Kids need to stop doing this. It is a great app and really helpful.

Schoology is the best!
I can honestly say that Schoology is the best online program for schools to have. I love how I get notifications on Schoology when a teacher posts, comments, or sends a message. I love how easy it makes things, such as if you forget to write an assignment in your agenda book- it’s most likely already posted in the Schoology calendar. With the app, you don’t need to log in to your laptop and get to schoology- all you do is turn on your phone. How easy is that? I also love how Schoology can be accessed from computers too! This is a great app for all your school needs. Schoology is a great way to communicate with classmates and teachers, even take a quiz on here and get your grade instantly! It’s also a way to get students excited about participating in discussions with other classmates in the social-media platform. I would definitely recommend this for ALL schools!!

If you are a district, DONT use this!
This app is very bad in pretty much every way. I’m saying this as a student, who experiences crashes and bugs daily. My peers and I, who normally are ok with doing schoolwork, are now struggling to keep up in the muddy sea that is this app. It has a very clunky design, and takes you back to 2014 when you get into it (it has very outdated software). Schools are always like “Kids should like going to school, what if we add some technology element”. I get it, I honestly really like technology, but this app isn’t the way to go. I would much prefer google classroom since it is more reliable and user-friendly. It takes more than one try to even edit a discussion comment! I answered a discussion question, found that I needed to add 1 sentence, and then I get an error! Come on! Everything says “Sorry for the Inconvenience”, but sorry isn’t going to cut it for all of these school districts that are relying on your website. All in all, please go for a better option like google classroom. This website is not worth the time and effort just for it to crash.

all my homies hate schoology
honestly, though? The interface could be SO MUCH BETTER. The potential was THERE but the servers are crappy a lot of times and videos won’t play in the app on many occasions. the web version is much better than the app, which is a problem, since most kids (at least in my district) are using the app because iPads are provided by the school. Schoology is hard to navigate for parents and first-time students. One of its biggest flaws is tracking the assignments - it doesn’t show missing assignments in the overdue section of the upcoming tab, meaning that missing assignments stay missing for days, as I am unaware that they *are* missing, as checking missing assignments requires you to go through the grades of your classes one by one. In summary, the potential is there, it really is. Upgrading the app to have the same capabilities as the web browser would go a long way, as well as having a tab itself for missing assignments and a way to contact your teachers quickly and easily.

Not at all user friendly
My sons school district has used Schoology for quite a few years now. One would think that over time, it would developed a more user friendly interface. It clunky to find assignments, notes from teachers, etc. it requires going under several different menus to find anything. With the update this year, it’s more like they took the webpage and shrunk it slightly and called it an app. The whole page doesn’t fit into the phone screen, she if I am reading grades or a post by a teacher, I have to pull the page left and right, to read each line. Even the My children screen when grades are posted is like this. I have to drag the page across my phone screen to the left to see a grade that posted. This used to fit in the screen so I didn’t need to figure out which line the grade belonged on. It’s like it’s getting less user friendly as it goes along. Since most people are using an app on a phone, one would think the app would be designed for a phone screen.

Let Us Delete Assignments
I think this is a great platform for learning especially during the Coronavirus outbreak. From a student who has only been using this app for around two years, I do not have many complaints. The biggest one is how we are not allowed to un submit an assignment once we turn it in. I personally have had multiple problems with having to submit an updated version or submitting the wrong assignment and confusing my teachers. Since there is coronavirus and most kids are learning online I also feel that we should be able to use the conference feature through the app instead of going on a third party search engine. For my school I use Zoom and Schoology Conferences. I feel that for many other students and I would have an easier time on this app during such a rough time if you made these feature available. Thank you.
