UNESCO is reporting 862 million students are out of school due to coronavirus and that COVID-19 has the potential to risk students' "right to education."

As school closures continue, district leaders are working to adopt distance learning as a vehicle to continue teaching and learning. We’ve put together a number of resources to help you keep learning going anywhere, anytime during this unprecedented time.

Distance Learning Resources

Preparing & Planning for Virtual Learning

While you may not feel fully prepared to implement virtual learning right now, use these resources to help guide your planning process for a school closure.


Getting Started with Schoology 

We want to help keep the learning and collaboration continuing with your students and staff. Use the resources on this page to help your teachers learn more about using Schoology for online learning during this time of school closures.


Engaging Students with Virtual Learning

Student engagement can be a challenge in the classroom. With millions of students now learning from home, we wanted to share some resources to help you keep high levels of collaboration and engagement during this unprecedented time.


Connecting with the Schoology Community

Don't go it alone! Connect with other educators in the Schoology Community in the app and on social media. Learn from others' best practices, ask questions to the community, and help out your peers.
