WEIA is pleased to partner with Schoology for its Learning Management System (LMS).

Schoology is a virtual learning environment that allows for the delivery of online courses in a way that is user-friendly and secure for teachers, learners and administrators.  Schoology customizes the LMS for each school’s unique needs and provides extensive and immediate technical support as needed.

Some of the specialized features include the capability to provide:  organized lesson and unit plans, descriptions of assessment and evaluation items, assignment submission boxes, discussion boards, real-time video-conferencing and live chat rooms.

At WEIA, teachers – in consultation with the Principal – design and develop the academic content for each course so that it matches and meets the expectations set out in the curriculum documents for the Ontario Ministry of Education.

Once registered for an online course, students will receive their individual, password-protected log-in information for Schoology.  As part of the first lesson, students learn from the teacher how to navigate through the various components of Schoology.  As well, students are made aware of the expectations for work completion and active participation in the course.

Each teacher is highly knowledgeable in the curriculum area and is skilled at delivering online courses.  In this way WEIA creates a virtual and friendly learning community that supports student engagement and attainment of the academic expectations of the course.
