What's changing with the new Site Navigation? (System Admins)

Introducing the new Schoology experience

Schoology is updating its interface and workflows to make it even easier to use — with better accessibility and a more modern experience.

As the first step in this process, we're releasing a new and improved Site Navigation this year. System Administrators currently have the ability to opt-in to the new experience on behalf of their Enterprise organization with an option in System Settings. Basic users will have the new experience in mid-July. The full move to the new navigation will be complete by November 19, 2018.

The new experience includes a new top navigation and footer, and removes the left navigation from the homepage, making it:

  • Easier to access all of your tools throughout Schoology.
  • Simpler for instructors and administrators to get things done with a more streamlined workflow.
  • Better for younger learners, with a visual card layout for courses and groups.
Note: The new Schoology experience is not yet supported on our iOS and Android apps. This is currently on our Product Roadmap: New User Experience on the iOS app.

Enable the new Schoology experience for your Enterprise organization

  1. As a System Admin, click System Settings in the left menu of your home page.
  2. Check the box to Enable the new Schoology experience.
  3. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
