Have spent some time with schoology and my frustration level has come down. I actually like it much better and think it is better than the other systems. It is set out just like a facebook page which means that it is easier to navigate for those who are already familiar with facebook.

A teacher at my daughter's school told me the district is getting rid of InClass.

From what I learned last night at Back to School Night, Infinite Campus is still the place to find grades, etc. but to find out homework and get homework help, Schoology is the place to go. In fact, we were shown a conversation between students on schoology helping each other with a homework problem (names hidden).
The usual issue with new technology is that they haven't yet figured out the parent part yet so as yet we can't log in to find out about it unless our kids let us in on their account.
And one thing more, the kids have all been issued temporary passwords which are their initials and dates of birth which means that they can probably hack into each other's accounts. Therefore it is a must for them to load in their own passwords. The other thing to remind them is that their teachers and also the JLS admin are monitoring everything so personal and private stuff should not be discussed or entered.
I think this is one that I will like and will work.
