Create Course Assignments on the Android Mobile App (Instructors)


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

Within your Android mobile app, you can add an assignment from one of two places: within a course or the Recent Activity area.

Note: For devices on Android 11, see this article for a recent update on the Android Camera app.
