Individually Assign Folders

Follow

|

It would be nice to be able to assign folders of information to certain grading groups.

Sometimes it is important to limit documents, files, links and resources to a smaller group and NOT overwhelm other groups with that information.

    Hi, all -

    I'm happy to announce that the ability to Individually Assign Folders is now In Research on our Product Roadmap! That means it's not in development yet, but our team is researching this as a part of our larger efforts to improve differentiation in Schoology. There are other related features in that section that may interest you as well: Assign Materials to Groups of Students Based on Performance and Student Choice Activities.

    In order to follow the progress of items on our roadmap, click Follow on each section of the roadmap: 

    Check the Product Roadmap for any updates about this feature. Please note that the development, release, and timing of any products, features, or functionality remains at the sole discretion of Schoology and is subject to change.

    Best,

    It would be terrific to assign information to smaller groups/grading groups to allow them to work collaboratively on certain content or projects.  This is a feature found in other LMS products.

    I agree! This would be very helpful for projects with my small groups of students, both for the classroom and extracurricular clubs.

    Definitely! Sometimes I would like to make a KEY available to students who had completed the work but not to others.

    Definitely need this feature. Also like reminders, fee payments or any broadcast item that will appear when the open the course just above the Materials Index. These need to be student specific. I would like to assign a specific resource to specific set of students based on the completion of other things using a password. The opportunity to add them based on a timed event will be great.

    I agree. Also what would be good is that any new assignment or activity etc placed in the particular folder would also get assigned.

    It would be great to assign each material individually or to a smaller grading group. Please addd this feature!

    Yes! This would save me so much time. Currently, I have to individually assign every single assignment, so I usually just label the folders to tell which students to go where, but it would be so much nicer (and cleaner looking for the students) if I could just assign the whole folder to certain students.

    Thanks for sharing that, Warren! This will save me a little bit of time, but it would still be nice to be able to just assign the whole folder to the group at once and not have to go in and assign each individual assignment within the folder. Hope they can add that feature soon!

    PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE! It would really save me hours of time to differentiate projects! Individually assigning assignments or quizzes isn't enough.

    I would have to agree as well. We need to be able to assign folders to individual students or a group of individual students. Schoolboy needs to go beyond assignments by focusing on folders.

    Yes, please!  This feature would simplify so much of our curriculum building.  We can put everything for a certain group in one folder and not have to assign each item individually.

    At the Schoology conference, it was said that this feature would be out before the end of 2017. Hey Schoology, when will this be available?

    This feature needs to be available as soon as possible.  Being able to assign a specific folder would make differentiation so much easier.  You would have to go through every assignment and assign any more.  It would also be beneficial for gamifying your class.  You could make different team folders and give each team different tasks to complete.
