Bad system, worse app
Schoology itself is a poorly designed system that attempts to turn what ought to be like a project management system into a friendly Facebook like interface, resulting in a system that is bad at being either. It is confusing and difficult for students and parents to navigate and actually know what needs to be done when. This is largely because it doesn’t enforce any standardized input from teachers, because it isolated courses from each other too much, and for parents, because they have to navigate to each student and then within each student to each course in a way that far too often requires two steps. For example, clicking on “courses” seems to open a page, but it’s really just a modal. So the user thinks that after selecting a course, they can click back to get to the courses list. Instead, you go back to the page before. The iOS app makes all this worse because it’s not a true native app, it’s a custom web browser that wraps the website. It cannot, however, display certain kinds of content internally like the website can. It tells you the content is unavailable. Most of it you can actually get to if you zoom in and find the external link, but this is very poor UI design. I would recommend school systems not spend the enormous amount of money this system must cost. As for the rest of us - we’re stuck with the schools’ bad decision, but you’re slightly better off going to a computer and avoiding the app whenever possible.

Slow and Unresponsive
Recently my school system has switched from the far superior “Edmodo” to this service “Schoology”. It was issues since day one. I downloaded the mobile app and attempted to log in. It failed. I tried again, still a failure. Again and again, until finally I deleted the app and re-downloaded it. Finally I was able to log in with little trouble. A few days pass and I am required to enter the app for another time. I open the app and the loading screen loads. I sat waiting for several minutes, staring at the name “Schoology” with the loading icon below it. Finally I closed the app and tried again. I got past the loading screen to an unloaded home screen. Becoming frustrated, I blamed my IPad. So I restarted the device and opened the app again. Finally I was able to access the assignments. This type of issue is not uncommon, though the solution is always different. Today (at the time of post) I was assigned to take notes off of Schoology. After school, I opened the app and almost everything loaded fine. Almost. When I went onto the teachers “Course” page. It gave me the error message “Unable to load, please try again later. I became fed up and closed the app, and opened it again. It STILL didn’t work. I have troubleshot this app so many times. I certainly would NOT recommend this to ANYONE. Please fix this app.

Poorly optimized for a phone app
The idea of schoology is great and the website works great on the computer, but this app is not ideal. Thee are some things about it that just don’t make sense. For example the wifi in my school is a bit spotty and when I go in and out of it while opening the app it just logs me out and even if I reopen the app while in the wifi it still makes me login again. Also when I post something in my club’s Schoology group there are formatting issues that don’t appear on the website. It doesn’t register when I make a new line by pressing [enter]. It shows while I’m typing but when I post it there is no mew line. This is really frustrating. I also can’t access my bio where you select type of learner, change name, etc. from the app whereas you can from the website. Also my profile picture shows up upside down for some reason. No idea why since it’s right side up on the computer. I still use the app since it’s better than going on Safari but it’s really a pain.
