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.

Important Notes:
  • Depending on the settings in place at your school, you may see the new experience upon logging into Schoology. Reach out to your instructor with any questions.
  • 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.

Here's a high-level overview of the changes Students can expect from the new Schoology experience:

New Site Header

All of the items previously accessible from the left-hand menu of the homepage are now accessible from the top navigation of the site. Click Schoology in the top left corner to return to the homepage at any time.

Note: If your school shows their own logo in the top left corner, click the logo to return to the homepage.
