Schoology Homepage for Instructors

Follow

Your homepage is the first place you'll land every time you log in to Schoology. Every aspect of the platform can be accessed directly from this location. Your homepage is where you'll be briefed on all events and activity. It also keeps you organized by highlighting important events. The Recent Activity feed on the right displays aggregated activity across your courses, groups and organizations, along with a running list of Reminders and Upcoming events. You can also view the Course Dashboard for a tiled list of courses in which you're enrolled. You can always return to the homepage from anywhere in Schoology by clicking the Schoology logo, or your school logo, in the top left corner.

Use the links below to jump to a specific section of the guide:

Recent Activity

Your homepage is the first page you’ll see after logging into Schoology. Here you can find the Recent Activity feed. This feed shows all the comments, updates, and events pertaining to your connections, courses, and groups.

Use the menu in the top-center of the page to post Updates, Polls, Assignments, Events, or Blog Posts directly from your Recent Activity page. You can also choose where in Schoology the post is visible, and who is able to view the post.

Finally, you can filter the Recent Activity feed by clicking the Most Recent drop-down menu on the right side of the center column.

Note: You can post assignments, updates, and events to any or all courses and groups at once using the Post: function.
