Now that you have created a Schoology account, personalized your profile, and customized the settings, it is time to create your first course. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a course in Schoology that fits the specific needs of your class, and obtain an access code to be shared with students.
- I've now created a Schoology account, personalized my profile, customized my settings and learned how to navigate the Schoology site. So I'm now ready to create a course. I'm going to do this by clicking on the Courses button on the navigation bar. You'll see that I don't have any courses created yet. In order to create my first one, I'll click on the Create button. It first asks me for the Course Name. Type in Life Science. Then I can customize the Section number by clicking on the text. Notice you can name it whatever you want. You could have this as a section number, class hour or whatever fits your situation.
In this case, I'm actually going to leave mine as Section one. and then I'll select a subject area, Science. Then I can select the grade. And I do have the ability to select a grade range. If I'm going to click on nine and then off to the right appears Add Range. And I can put that from ninth to tenth grade. So once I have that done, I'm going to click Create and immediately the course is created. We're brought to the course homepage. This will be an important page for our course because this is the page that we can deliver resources, provide instruction, post course updates, communicate, assess and provide feedback to students.
At the bottom of the page on the left hand side, notice the box that says Access Code. In this case the Access Code is B - B - B - M - T dash three D - Z - X - M. Now this code is important as it will be the code that you share with people who you would like to join the course. In the next video, we'll take a look at how to begin customizing this course to fit the specific needs of your class.
