Schoology Corner

It is widely understood that the more attractive something is, the more people will flock to it, and be engaged by it, and this even applies to your Schoology courses! A Schoology course that is aesthetically pleasing to look at is more likely to draw your students in and excite them about the learning associated with it. Mattea Garcia, one of our DPS Schoology gurus, teaches you “How to Make Schoology Pretty” in this month’s edition of Schoology Corner!
