    Hi, all -

    I'm thrilled to announce that we’ve built a new way to differentiate instruction with assigned folders! This has been the Schoology Community's #1 request for a long time, so we greatly appreciate your patience while we worked to find the right solution. You asked, and we listened!

    Teachers can now individually assign folders to specific students and grading groups so that only the assignees can view the folder and its contents. Any materials added to the folder are automatically updated to be available to the assigned student(s).

    Additionally, this new workflow for individually assigning folders includes the ability to "Select All" student in a course section. This should reduce the clicks needed to exclude specific students without needing to build a grading group. For example, you can now assign the folder to all students except one who was absent.

    This would be fabulous.  I currently have independent work at three differentiation levels.  In each folder is 24 assignments.  I have 6 sections, so without this feature I must individually assign 432 assignments--Yikes!

    I can't agree with this enough!!! This would make differentiation within a class so much easier!

    I keep seeing this feature being requested (since 2013 it looks like), so what's the deal? Is this being worked on? What's the hold up? Even in one of your own webinars on gamification your speakers mentioned how much they wanted this feature.

    I was so happy to see the increased ability to assign all course materials ... you are so close!  As others have mentioned, in some cases we are talking about tens or even hundreds of individual materials that need to be uniquely assigned.  I would love to have individually assigned folders that only they can see, and that any materials and assignments placed in the folder is automatically assigned to whichever individual or group is assigned to the folder. This would not just be a little better, it would be a game changer!
