Learning Management System: Schoology



For teachers, a learning management system provides a way to create and deliver a variety of digital content, individualize resources for specific student needs, monitor student participation, and assess student performance. For students, a learning management system provides one, streamlined place where course and customized materials, assignments, and communications can be accessed and submitted. Teachers can assign, grade, comment on students' work, and return it to students all within Schoology. Since the system is cloud based it allows students to access materials from anywhere with internet access and easily collaborate on projects without needing specific software.
