Schoology LMS Adds Office 365 Integration

Yesterday, Schoology added Microsoft Office 365 integration, allowing individuals to use Microsoft Docs, Slides, Sheets, etc. without leaving the learning management system (LMS).

Within Schoology, users can leverage Microsoft OneDrive to create a copy of a template for each student within a classroom, for example, with a single click thanks to the integration. These students can access their individual submissions directly within the platform, and can view feedback on Office 365 documents within the LMS.

Key enhancements to the Schoology LMS include:

  • Support for Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint;
  • Simple integrated workflow for admin, teachers and students across the platform — from submitting assignments to grading; and
  • Real-time progress monitoring tools.

The announcement comes a month after Schoology’s platform was updated to integrate to Google Drive. Given the frequency of use in classrooms, more LMSs like Canvas and itslearning are adding Microsoft Office 365 and Google Drive integration.

Schoology is hosting a webinar on the integration next Wednesday. Users can also preview the update at the Schoology NEXT user conference, taking place in Chicago, IL, July 24-26.
