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:
