Reports of Schoology crash as school districts transition to online learning

Connectivity is a top priority for students, as many school districts began official distance learning on Monday.

Amid the transition, one learning management system, Schoology, experienced server issues, kicking students out of online classrooms and producing load errors.

“We are aware some users are experiencing degraded service when accessing Schoology. We’re reviewing this now and will provide further updates,” the service said in message on its official page designated to monitoring server functionality.

Throughout the day, across the country, the site recorded issues with slow loading times, delayed messaging, auto-imports and document conversion. Most of the issues were reportedly resolved before the school day’s end.

Several area school districts use Schoology to distribute assignments and communicate with students and families. It is unclear whether any districts in Western Pennsylvania experienced server issues. The Allegheny Intermediate Unit could not confirm if any of the region’s districts reported problems.
