Learning Management Systems (LMS)
LMSs are the backbone of how we conduct classes. Your LMS is accessible by you, your students, and their caretakers. An LMS can contain:
Class Information such as contact methods , course schedules, classroom policies, syllabi, event calendars, and attendance
Course readings and videos
Temple ISD uses the following LMSs:
SeeSaw - for Early Childhood and some primary classes
Google Classroom - for Grades K-8
Schoology - for Grades 9-12
Edgenuity - for some Secondary and Alternative Clases
Setting Up Schoology (Grades 9-12)

You can create one course and add sections for each class period.
Click link and scroll to section “Add Members Button”
You can add your Co-Teacher using this method. Then you can change their permission to admin level once added.
Adding links, creating assignments and creating assessments

Clever is our landing page for most all digital content. When you or a student accesses a digital tool by clicking on its icon, the sign in credentials (User Name and Password) will flow through to the application and students will not need to sign in again. You can add your own icons to your classroom for students to click and that way they won't need to know the exact web address. However, this is only a pass-through and most of the time the students will need to enter their credentials.
Clever Badges for Students
Teachers print Clever QR Code Badges and send digitally to parents (K-8)
