Instructor Q&A

Share link to a course materials?


Is there a way to share a URL to a specific item in course materials? Grabbing the URL from the address bar in my browser sends students to the general Schoology page and asks them to log in again. We're an enterprise school so they log in with their Google accounts through our domain-specific address. 

Thank you!

    Hi Paige, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    Here are some things to check to ensure your students are receiving the appropriate URL:

    • Are you logged in through your custom domain? If so, the URL should use your domain-specific address (rather than and the students shouldn't be rerouted to login through
    • Are you using linked sections? If so, the "child" sections would have a different URL than the "master" section. Students might not be able to access the URL if they're in a different section. 
    • The URL for a specific material may be different for students and teachers. For example, when a teacher views a test/quiz, they might see the URL end in "assignment/[unique id number]/assessment_results" but the student would need the URL to read "assignment/[unique id number]/assessment" because the Assessment Results view is unavailable to them.

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if this does not resolve the issue you're experiencing.

    OMD, I was logging into the wrong URL! I'll test that and see if that was the issue. Thank you!
