Hello! I'm currently in the process of trying to setup a new instructor account on Schoology as I'm going to be using it heavily at my new school with sharing content from my PLC.
However, when I go to Schoology Learning register and click on instructor it just automatically sends me to the Getting Started Guide for Schoology.
There's no indication anywhere on the page of how to actually create a new account and step one asks me to login to my Schoology account in order to access the Schoology Learning support page. But since I can't create an account that's rather difficult.
Any help with the issue would be greatly appreciated!
If you are looking to create a basic account for an Instructor then, currently, we have discontinued to allow the creation of new basic accounts. And if you are working with a district that has an Enterprise Schoology Account then you would need to connect with your Schoology Admins at your district, who can create a new Instructor account for you.
I'm still in the process of finding out if our district has schoology however, if they do not can individual teachers purchase a schoology account?
Schoology can be purchased at the organization level and is not available at the individual level. I will reach out to you in a case to determine if your school or district is using Schoology.
I have read your post and I am in the same situation (I cannot signo up to a new account as instructor), so the question is when will we be allowed to sign up as an instructor and participate in all on line activities as a teacher? Thank you.
Schoology can be purchased at the organization level and is not available at the individual level. If you are looking to create a new Instructor account as a basic user then we have currently discontinued that option for Schoology and if you are working with a school district and want to use Schoology at the enterprise level then I recommend reaching out to the Schoology administrators in your school who should be able to create an Instructor account for you.
So if we are at a current school, moving to a new one then we lose all of the work we have on Schoology? 5 YEARS OF MY STUFF WILL BE GONE? I need a backup account to move all of my Schoology stuff to. This is unacceptable, Schoology. Way to just go after the money.
How do I save my course so it's viewable until I get another job? I downloaded it but the imscc file doesn't open even when converted to a zip file??

Currently, we do not have any information to share that this is getting re-enabled. If that decision is ever made we will communicate this to you through PowerSchool Community.
What is the purpose of not allowing individual accounts? That really just makes me like Canvas that much more because as an educator, I know that systems come and go. Canvas assured me that my paid educator content that I create will not be lost. I can migrate all of it to my free account.
Looks like just another business decision instead of educational.
I second what CultivateLearn wrote!!! Please give instructions access to a basic free account so that the material I've created through one division could be transferred over to another!
Unfortunately, we no longer support creating basic accounts at the individual level, so there is no option to transfer the materials. You would need to re-create your material.
Agreed - I have been struggling to appreciate Schoology after working at a school that uses Canvas and this news really tops it off. Wherever I have influence I will always tell a company to steer away from Schoology most especially because of the loss of being able to create a personal account. Super disappointing - so much work will be lost because of this and I see no solutions being presented here. Very unfortunate for Schoology as I imagine many companies picked Schoology before this change happened and many will likely release Schoology once they learn about this challenge. I will encourage my company to switch over to Canvas this year.
