How to Log In Using the App:
Because we are using Single Sign-On (SSO) as a district to manage usernames & passwords, logging into the app version requires that we choose "Username Login" instead of "Email Login." This is true for all users (parents, staff, & students).
Using the App:
One of the nice things about using the app is that you can upload photos or videos from the Camera Roll (iOS) or Gallery (Android) into assignments & posts and you can also record directly into assignments or posts using the built-in camera. When in a materials area (like Assignments or Discussion Boards), a "+" sign in the upper right hand corner of the screen allows you to upload, take a picture/video, or add items from resources.
Functionality differs slightly between Android & iOS, but students can do most things using the app (including taking assessments). If you're a teacher, it's a great way to post a quick update or add video or photos from a mobile device.
Logging out of the App:
If there are things that don't work the way you need them to work in the app, remember that you can always access COLE 3.0/Schoology on the mobile device browser. Certain things in a course are probably easier to accomplish using the web version, but there are definite benefits to having access on the go.
