Schoology Access Transition 2020 FAQs

Follow

If our district/school uses our own district-purchased Schoology, do we have to move to a vhlcentral Supersite? No.

 

How do I access my old courses in Schoology?

If Schoology was provided to your school district by Santillana USA, your old courses will not be available beginning July 1, 2020.

 

What is going to happen with my custom resources in Schoology? Can I download or transfer my custom resources to a vhlcentral Supersite?

If Schoology was provided to your school district by Santillana USA, you will no longer have access to any custom resources in Schoology, so you should download them before July 1, 2020. Teachers may add custom resources to vhlcentral Supersite courses including images, text documents, presentation slides, and custom activities (video, composition, student recording, partner chat).
