Won’t let me log in 1/5
Wish I could give 0 stars. Our school completely switched from infinite campus after years to what ever “this” is. It’s confusing and frankly It won’t even let me into the app. At least I could check my assignments on campus
It doesn’t even let me login! 1/5
Schoology online or on the computer is fine. But, this mobile app is horrible! It literally doesn’t even let me login. I need to use my iPad for schoolwork, so I got this app (bad idea). Because, it doesn’t work, and I’ve tried multiple times, but it never works! If I was actually able to log onto the app, I might have a different review, but if this isn’t fixed it’s pointless to have.
It’s disappointing to see schools spend so much money on such a terrible program. It’s so much more difficult and reliable than their competitors such as pinnacle.
Good app... 4/5
By Guitar Popcorn
This app is great and is always getting better. Using this app keeps us from wasting paper, and helps prepare students for the technology age before them. It works on iPads, Microsoft laptops, and on many devices through web browsers. It automatically grades assignments for teachers, allows many formats for assignments, and more. It allows students to communicate with teachers from at home, and can make it easy to report bullying without the bully knowing about it. Parents can even be connected and hear from teachers how their kids are doing in class, behavior issues, and class trips and activities. However, don’t get the app! The online version is available through multiple web browsers, and it is much better! It is easier to navigate and log in, but that is my opinion. Sorry for the extremely long review. Have a great day!

Worthless app - miss the old way 1/5
The app is impossible to navigate. Whether it be the app, or the school’s use of the same, it is full of problems. I’ll receive a notice saying that my kid has late homework, click on the link, and then be told it can’t be accessed via the app. What’s the point? It’s a good idea but misses the goal. I hope my school district is not eating money to use it.
This app desperately needs Better split screening. When I split screen I am always forced to scroll and hold my finger when i am looking at a page or document because this app isn’t optimized well enough to figure out it’s not in full screen, this makes it very difficult for when I’m trying to multitask and since this is the app I’m forced to use for school it is very frustrating.
School is disgusting 1/5
By school is gross
Ughhh it’s a lot of work:/
Google classroom is better and way easier to use.
By IS THIS AN OK USER YET?!
I honestly only dislike this because it’s for school:)
It’s okay... 3/5
My school personally uses Schoology, it’s not the worse but can be better. It’s design is not the most sleek but it has its functions. With its recent update, it makes thing just a tad more confusing as the older format was different. But as a suggestion, I would recommend a feature where the students have a option to turn off the picture for their profile (but teachers are able to view their picture). Since being a student myself, a bad picture day can lead to some feelings of self consciousness.
Thy app is doodoo
Really good app, but for one major tweak needed 3/5
This is a great companion app to the Schoology website except for one MAJOR glitch.
In the discussion forums for a class, you get notifications that someone replied to your post. However, when you click on the notification it just takes you to the top of the discussion. In my classes, these threads become very long. It is very time consuming and easy to miss the response post.
For my classes, it is essential to be able to quickly find a response to see the context and in turn respond back to the comment.
Please pass this along to your team to see if they can make it so you are linked directly to the post when you click on a notification hyper link in the app and email notifications.
if i could give it a 0 star rating i would 1/5
i had the schoology app on my old phone, and it worked fine, though it’s poorly designed, and i recently upgraded and now i can’t even log in. i’ve looked online to see if there was anything to do to fix it and there wasn’t anything i could do, it works fine on safari, but it’s hard to read it there, that’s why i got the app. but the app just doesn’t work,, very disappointing
Doesn’t work on iPhone XR 1/5
Upgraded iPhone and it won’t let me login, just leaves me on a blank screen after putting in login info...
Printing from Schoology App? 3/5
I hate it how I can’t do my homework on the bus or something thing because I’m offline. Make it for I can do my homework when I’m offline please.
I’ve had nothing but difficulty with this app for the last couple of months. Authentication errors and internet connection fails galore.
Today I was on my phone and I saw that Schoologys logo changed it hanged a while ago ik but I just noticed it and now I’m depressed I agree with Lily change it back man! My tears won’t stop...
Irritating bug issues 2/5
The whole point of having the app is for mobile access to my online grad courses. The app has been continually freezing and kicking me off when I try to open discussion posts. It won’t even load the posts.
By It makes you think a lot
Schoology is great. As a blind person who uses Schoology in a daily bases, I would really appreciate if the Schoology team could fix the VoiceOver labeling issue when you are browsing members from your course, it used to be accessable, but ever since I've updated this app, when I click on members, it just keeps saying loading, and when I double tap on it, it brings the person's name. Before, that, I used to see the person's name without clicking on them
Update, The Schoology team has fixed this issue. Thank you, Schoology!
This app is terrible 1/5
When you try and click on some grades on the notification page it won't do anything and you can keep clicking on it but it won't do anything. This also happens with discussion boards. Another thing about discussion boards is you have to "click to see web version" to see the grade on the discussion board which is annoying. Overall, they don't pay attention to the little things and it's very glitchy. I would just use the app to see when grades are posted or when a teacher posts; other than that, i would just use the desktop version.

The overall Schoology platform is not well constructed, is overly complicated and ultimately misses it mark on meaningful helping to improve education through better communication, collaboration and tracking of progress for students, teachers and parents.
Parent email digest is a great ideas but all it send is a set of links and none of the links actually work. Hence that is worthless.
Courses get auto set up which seems nice, but once you realize that only about 1 or 2 of the 12 listed are actually being used the yer is about half over. And then you can’t remove those other courses not being used. This no way to streamline.
Most assignment and test information seems to be rather limited giving only a high level score or letter grade for it. This no idea where to help my children further at home.
App is simply an interface to access the website vs. actually being a designed experience for mobile. Zero benefit of having the app as most of the information hat gets posted you wouldn’t be able to see or use anyway.
All parties would be better off using good old fashion paper, or even a make shift set of files on a Google Drive along with a messaging board over the convoluted Schoology system.
It is clear that this was a design process that was very enamored with what they thought they COULD do, focusing on adding more and more features that they never stopped to really think about what they SHOULD do. Or to even think about the user experience, if it is this difficult to use as a parent I am distraught to think about the experience the students have to deal with, and certainly the teachers.
School districts need to ditch this platform.
It’s not good, it’s not great..... 1/5

By August Carlson
Ok app needs to be changed 3/5
It’s very annoying how you only display the letter grade in the app...please update it to the actual score (and letter grade). Everyone in my school agrees. Thanks and I’ll update my review once this is fixed! 😎
It doesn’t let me log in to my account and I need to log in ASAP.
Es not dope
I hate this app 1/5
This app is the worst app for school don’t download thank you
So many flaws 1/5
Schoology is low quality compared to most other apps I have seen. The general idea is fine, but there are just way too many flaws. Additionally, there are certain ways that schoology makes me want to not live. For example, I was doing an online assignment for my math class. My connection drops for literally one second and refreshing results in getting kicked out. I messaged the teacher, but it’s due in 30 minutes. I don’t know anything about making a website, but I know that this is a terrible way for it to function. The whole thing just seems a little lazy to me. Usually the app is pretty slow. The viewer is trash, and any image or video you upload is horribly compressed. You clearly do not understand what your main audience wants. As a student using schoology, working with it increases my chance of self harm by 20% or more. Please fix your numerous issues. Using schoology increases my blood pressure and decreases my life span. I hope you can fix many of the frustrations I have encountered during my use of schoology.
Thank you for reading.
Poorly designed and doesn’t work well with split screen 3/5
If you have previously opened the app split screen will not work, super annoying other more general complaints
It’s not the best 1/5
It’s not the best because it’s hard to use and hard to find things for school
doesn’t work, terrible 1/5
can’t open folders... fix it
just bad 1/5
its so broken and insecure. a kid hacked into it within a month at our school and nobody knows how it works
As a parent of a 6th grader, this is my first time using this app. Almost everything my son does in class and assignments for home revolves around Schoology. This is absolutely the most frustrating app I’ve ever used and having to try and navigate it on a daily basis is a nightmare. I can’t tell you how many homework assignments we have missed entirely because we couldn’t find them in all the folders and general disorganization in this app. Why isn’t there a section just for HOMEWORK with each class listed with the homework and due date next to it??? Instead I have to go through each class individually and if the teacher didn’t create an update on the side, I have to try to go through all these folders to try to find it. Using this app on my phone is also useless because most of the files are too big to open in the mobile app, so I have to get on the computer every single time I want to check something. This app definitely needs a lot of work, I’m dreading having to deal with this for another two years. 👎
By joe the mama
I no like too much work
It’s a good app but like school is a blow
it is a terrible app confusing to use and the worst topic ever
Won’t let me do anything it’s terrible I can’t with it it makes me so frustrated it’s very slow and does not work well.
This app has been ignored over time, devs are running it into the ground 2/5
I started using Schoology as a teacher about 5 years ago, and loved it so much that I convinced my entire school to start using it. The grade book on the website and all of the electronic functionality for posting were, and still are, really awesome for blended and electronic learning. The real benefit, though, was the iPad app that let you me grade and annotate right within the app. A great game-changer that separated Schoology from things like Edmodo, and it became an absolute staple for our 1:1 iPad school.
Since then, I'll give them credit for rolling out some awesome and desperately needed gradebook improvements to Schoology.com, but the iPad app has consistently gotten worse. The support team's responsiveness has also tanked since Schoology "blew up" about 2-3 years ago, and support requests for non-enterprise users might as well be disabled. This app is wildly inconsistent, sometimes not notifying or syncing up with resubmitted work, and I have an open support ticket from a year ago to prove it, which has been abandoned by the support team.
There is a new bug with this app that nukes students' submissions and says PDF files can't be displayed, which requires opening in a different app or a resubmission to hopefully even be able to see it. How long will Schoology let this one fester? Who knows, but hey - at least the site and the app look like Facebook now, huh?
Documents can’t open. 1/5
By Silicon FX
I can no longer open documents. They just give a weird informal message.
New update won’t let me open any PDFs 1/5
By Liley lover 9091
From a sad student that can’t do homework as I can’t open any files with the new update.
The loading is bad 2/5
Every time a teacher give me a homework assignment the image or PDF is not loading. Is loading on the computer but is very slow.
