Tech Tip Tuesday: Using the Tool Tip Feature in Schoology

tech-tip-tuesday

There are so many features in Schoology that most of us do not even realize are available. Many of these fly under the radar and we never get a chance to see what they are and how to best utilize them in the classroom. One such feature is the “Tooltip”.

To access the “tooltip”, create a material/assignment as you normally would, then in editing mode –> highlight a word or phrase –> click the “insert content” button –> select “tooltip” –> type what you want your note or information to be –> click the green checkmark –> then save at bottom. Once you are out of the editing mode, the word or phrase you selected will show a light blue line underneath and if you hover over it, a question mark/bubble will appear with your note!

The “tooltip” feature is great if you want to add more information or a definition to your content to better help your students. You can even add a “tooltip” to an image by selecting the image and following the steps noted above. This is great for DI or to help struggling learners and/or ESL students.

Hope this helps!
