Schoology Release Notes: June 2015

Web

New Feature: Portfolios (Enterprise)

Students and Instructors can now create and share ePortfolios. Add files, links to external web pages, course assignment submissions, or create a rich-text web page from directly in Schoology to exhibit work.

System Administrators enable permission in an account for users to add portfolios, and also manage privacy permissions from their System Settings area. Review the Help Center article for more information.

Support Chat (Enterprise)

Enterprise Support Contacts can contact the Schoology support team from a new chat interface. Click the Help Center link from the menu in the upper-right corner of any page in Schoology and then select the Live Chat option to start a chat with one of our Client Advisors.
