Introduction
Schoology (pronounced: Skool’uh-jee) is our first ever learning management system in Tomball ISD which offers a platform for organization, collaboration, communication, discussion boards, multimedia lessons, as well as a place to submit assignments and allows for easy teacher feedback/grading. Schoology has a simplified navigation and a similar layout to social media. It is also iPad compatible and fully integrates with Google Apps for Education. Students have been provided instructions on how to gain access to their Courses by logging into ClassLink, and will spend the first week of school learning how to navigate Schoology with teacher assistance.
