Table of Contents

Notes:
  • If you do not see the Elementary experience in your course, reach out to your teacher with any questions.
  • To take advantage of all Schoology features, it is strongly recommended that users upgrade to the latest version of the iOS app. Schoology only supports the latest 3 versions of iOS. Whenever Apple releases a new version of iOS, Schoology will drop support for the oldest version it previously supported.
  • You will be prompted to allow access to the camera, microphone, and files on your device when you access any Elementary-themed course for the first time on the mobile app. You must enable these in order to submit an assignment. If you initially disable access, search for the Schoology app on your device settings and manually allow access. You will not be prompted to allow access again unless you uninstall the app.
  • Audio assignment submissions are supported on devices running iOS 14.3 and later only.
  • For more information on using Schoology on the iOS mobile app, see this article.

Elementary Experience Course View

You can find all your elementary courses from the Courses area on the mobile app.

To get started, tap Courses from the main menu and tap the name of your choice to continue to that class.

The Elementary experience offers a more simplified version of your class. Once you enter, you will see all the course content your teacher has made available to you on the Materials screen.

Folders and materials are displayed as single cards on the screen. Instead of the traditional course menu navigation on the left and Upcoming items on the right, you will see the most important content all at once.

Your teacher can add Featured Images for each folder and material type to help you navigate through the course and identify different tasks for you to complete.

Course Materials

The Materials area in your course lists all the assignments, assessments, tests/quizzes, files/links, discussions, and pages your teacher has made available to you.

Your teacher may organize the content differently in each of your classes, so the course materials might be listed as soon as you open your course or organized into folders.
