Communicate the Pace of Course Materials in Schoology


Many teachers establish a pace for the units they will cover in a year via their class syllabus. You can communicate when or how long a certain unit will take by assigning date(s) to a folder. A folder that has a date or dates will appear in the Calendar, although it will not appear in the Upcoming list; you will need to communicate that you have added or changed these dates via the Updates menu or Messages.

  1. Navigate to the folder you would like to assign.
  2. Click on the gear icon to the right of the folder name. Choose Edit.Select_Unit_Folder.png
  3. In the Date field, choose the date you’d like for that group of activities. You can also assign a date range by clicking Add End Date.


Your folder will appear in the Calendar (for both teacher and students) but will not appear in the list of Upcoming events.


Alternatively, you can create a new folder, and assign a date or date range to it while you create it. You can then drag and drop activities into it.
