Schoology is a social network for K-12 schools and higher education institutions focused on collaboration, that allows users to create, manage, and share academic content. Also known as a learning management system or course management system, the cloud-based platform provides tools needed to manage an online classroom.
Visually and functionally similar to Facebook, the service includes attendance records, online gradebook, tests and quizzes, and homework dropboxes. The social media features facilitate collaboration among a class, a group, or a school. Schoology can be integrated with existing school reporting and information systems and also provides the added security, filters and support that school districts require.
