Create Course Assignments (iOS for Instructors)


Use assignments to enter tasks for students, which they can review, download, and submit, directly from within the Schoology mobile app on your iPad or iPhone, or in tandem with other resources and applications.

You can add an assignment from one of two places: the Recent Activity area, or one of your courses.

To create an assignment:

  1. Tap  and then tap Recent Activity or Courses.
    If creating from a course, tap one in the list to add the assignment in that course.
  2. Tap + and then tap Add Assignment.
  3. Add assignment details in the Create Assignment pane.
