I didn’t have a teacher accept an e-mailed assignment from me until my Senior year in high school. When I went to college all of my classes were supposed to be on Blackboard, but most of the professors didn’t use it because it was a terrible piece of software. Even by the time I graduated, most of my professors weren’t using much technology beyond e-mail to communicate and interact with students. I hear that’s changing, and I’ll bet that a lot of it has to do with how far technology has come over the last decade. We’ve all seen teachers try to get a video to play in class. When classroom technology doesn’t work, it brings learning to a screeching halt. Schoology is a New York, NY based company that does the opposite–they provide teachers with “the tools and connections to engage students more efficiently and improve educational effectiveness on both a large and small scale.”
Learning management systems are hot right now. From elementary education all the way up to corporate training (Schoology serves three distinct markets: K-12, Higher Education, and Corporate), people are realizing that technology can make learning happen faster. Schoology offers a wide range of solutions that are designed to make teaching easier. You can learn how they do that by reading some of Schoology’s Case Studies and Success Stories. Schoology’s business model is all about enterprise sales. They offer teachers a “Basic Package” for free, but if an entire school or other organization wants to be on the platform, they have to pony up. The product looks pretty awesome, so I bet it’s well worth it. If you want to be part of the future of education, take a look at Schoology’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a UI/UX Designer, an Account Executive – Inside Sales, and a Community Manager.
