SCHOOLOGY + TURNITIN.COM
Create a Turnitin assignment in Schoology for students to upload work allowing you to run a similarity report that checks any student submission for plagiarism. You can use all the Turnitin functions just like before, including their rubric maker, within Schoology and have the score automatically populate in your Schoology gradebook. This includes any Google Doc.
KAMI - Annotate PDF Assignments in Schoology
See how students can easily write and annotate PDFs attached to Schoology assignments and turn them in with the click of a button without ever having to leave Schoology, save a file or print anything out. We now have a full access trial until April 30th, 2020.
This is my top pick for teachers. There are many solutions and you should go with the one you are most comfortable with but this is the best for the everyday teacher after using all the rest. I recommend the 3 year $36 plan which includes the video editor. Having the ability to edit your video built into the tool is a must.
For those who just want alternative quick and easy "freemium" recording options:
Scan and Submit Work Directly to Schoology with a Cellphone
It's slightly off because recent updates to iOS but it's pretty much the same. In this video I show you how to scan documents as PDFs using your smart phones and turn them into Schoology.
How to Assign Kahoot Quizzes from Home
Find out how you can use the Kahoot app to assign quizzes for kids to complete at home. Kahoot calls these anytime, anywhere quizzes "challenges" and while you can assign them using the Kahoot website or app, kids can only play them using the new app, available for free on iOS and Android.
Student Paced PearDeck Lesson
Pear Deck is often used to engage students in a lesson in real time. But with Student Paced mode, you can extend any lesson by letting students work through your slides at their own pace, on their own time.
