Personalize and Organize your Schoology courses




TECH TIP OF THE WEEK: Personalize and Organize your Schoology courses


Now that students have Chromebooks in hand every day, take a moment to personalize and organize your Schoology courses so you and your students can easily interact online. Here are three quick tips you follow in ten minutes or less:

  • Personalize your Schoology courses with a unique icon. By default, all courses have the same icon, making it difficult for students to quickly jump to your course from their course list. Some of the course names that are imported from Infinite Campus can be confusing, so a unique icon for each course makes it easy to identify. Here’s how you can change your course icon in a minute or less. Pro Tip: Download icons from flaticon.com, or create your own using Google Drawing.

  • Reorder your Schoology courses in a logical order. Click Courses>See All, then click the up/down arrows to rearrange your courses so you have the most important ones at the top of your list. Here’s how.

  • Link your sections so when you post something to one section, students in all sections of the same course can see it. For example, if you teach four sections of English 1, you can link those sections so you just have to post an assignment once, and all of your English 1 students can see it. You can still customize due dates for each section if they meet on different days. Here’s how.
