App Center (System Administrators)

Follow

Schoology’s App Center provides educators and students access to software developed by other companies from directly within the Schoology website.

System Administrators can install LTI apps and Resource apps at the district level. Depending on the app, System Administrators may install for all courses/groups or specific users only.

Note:
  • Some apps require a subscription or license. They may require you to pay by single-use, subscription per user, or a school-wide subscription.

Configuring Apps at the Building Level

Note: This feature is in Limited Availability. If you’re a System Administrator and interested in configuring LTI apps at the building level, please reach out to your Client Success contact.

Apps featured in the App Center are typically installed and configured in Schoology at the district level and cannot be configured separately for each school building. However, some LTI Apps require each school or building to have their own access credentials when the license is not distributed at the district level. System Administrators can configure LTI Apps for specific schools in their organization with the following steps:

Step 1 — Install the app from the App Center

To install an app as a System Administrator:

  1. Click the App Center icon at the top of Schoology, then click App Center.
  2. Locate the app you wish to install and click the title.
  3. Click Install LTI App.
  4. Click I Agree to the terms to continue with the installation.App_Install_LTI_BL.png
  5. Click Add to Organization.
    App_Install_Org_LTI_BL.png
  6. You will be taken to Organization Apps to continue the installation.
  7. Click Manage Installs.
  8. Depending on the app, you may have the option to install for All Users, All Courses, For Course Admins only or All Course Members and/or All Groups. Check the relevant box(es) for which areas and/or members you wish to install the app.
    Note: If you change the installation settings at the district level, they cannot be changed at the building level. Learn more here.
  9. Click Submit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I install an app for all buildings in my organization and make changes for a specific building?
No, if you are installing an app for all buildings in your organization (from the All Schools view in Organization Apps), no changes can be made at the individual building level. When installing at the district level, the following message is displayed:

If you wish to install an app to all buildings and have different settings for a specific building (for example, install an app for course admins only at the middle school but install for all users at the high school), then you should make those changes within the specific building. Use the All Schools drop-down menu in Organization Apps to switch between different buildings in your organization and make the changes from there:
