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

  • Assignments

  • Announcements

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

Clever

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.
