Dear District 49 Educator,


Great news from Schoology, our award-winning learning management system! Schoology is updating its interface and workflows to make it even easier to use — with better accessibility and a more modern experience. The new experience includes a new top navigation and footer, and removes the left navigation from the homepage, making it:


  • Easier to access all of your tools throughout Schoology

  • Simpler for instructors and administrators to get things done with a more streamlined workflow

  • Better for younger learners, with a visual card layout for courses and groups


If you would like to get a sneak peak of the changes you can expect from the new site navigation and user experience, please read the “What’s Changing with Schoology’s New Site Navigation” article!

So you are aware, District 49 will officially enable the New Site Navigation on July 9, 2018. Since Schoology is already available to all District 49 teachers and students, you will benefit from this updated user experience when utilizing Schoology with your students in the 2018-19 school year!


We think you will find that Schoology’s new interface is intuitive and user-friendly. The full move to the new navigation will be complete by November 19, 2018. Let’s advance what’s possible at D49 with the new and improved Schoology platform!


D49 Schoology Team
