Not at all user friendly
My sons school district has used Schoology for quite a few years now. One would think that over time, it would developed a more user friendly interface. It clunky to find assignments, notes from teachers, etc. it requires going under several different menus to find anything. With the update this year, it’s more like they took the webpage and shrunk it slightly and called it an app. The whole page doesn’t fit into the phone screen, she if I am reading grades or a post by a teacher, I have to pull the page left and right, to read each line. Even the My children screen when grades are posted is like this. I have to drag the page across my phone screen to the left to see a grade that posted. This used to fit in the screen so I didn’t need to figure out which line the grade belonged on. It’s like it’s getting less user friendly as it goes along. Since most people are using an app on a phone, one would think the app would be designed for a phone screen.

Hi there, we're sorry for the inconvenience with the parent view in the mobile app. This issue has been escalated to our Engineering team, with a priority of Moderate Impact. This means that we understand this area of the app is not working fully as intended, but prioritization of this issue is weighted against more urgent issues and other features we are developing. In the meantime, we recommend trying a mobile browser to switch between multiple children in this view. Thank you for your feedback and your patience.
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.

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.
