As a tech integrator, my work during the first week of school fell into two categories. The first was helping last year’s Schoology converts to load courses and materials into their new live courses. And, the second category was helping teachers who are starting to convert materials.
Clearly, everyone’s realizing that Schoology is here to stay at CA and that it’s a powerful tool for managing courses.
As teachers become more comfortable with this tool, they inevitably start looking for greater customization.
My tech tip this week helped to show some features–both old and new–in Schoology that would help with how their Schoology home-pages look.
I forget to mention in the video that a great strategy for customization comes in changing the course profile picture. Schoology is offering us a greater range of choice, but I like finding something custom to my class that gives us our own brand identity.
