Managing assignments in a digital, now virtual, classroom is essential for success. Use these steps to assign and manage Wixie projects through Schoology.
Teachers assign the project
Start by finding the file you wish to assign to your students. You can choose from over 1500 templates from the Wixie curriculum library. If you created your own Wixie file, locate it inside your My Projects folder.
Select the three dots next to the template and select Share.
A Share dialog will open in Wixie, showing the URL of the project. Select the Copy URL button.
Select Done to close the dialog.
Log into your Schoology Account. Select the class you want to assign the Wixie file to.
Select Add Materials and then select Add Assignment.
Add the Project name, description and other pertinent information.
Select the Link button to add the direct link to the Wixie file.
An Attach Link/Embed window will appear. Paste the link into the Link/Embed field. Add the title, and then select Attach.
When you return to the Edit Assignment dialog, select the Create button. Students will now see this assignment on the selected date in their Schoology account.
Students open and complete the assignment
Now, when students are logged into Schoology, they can select the link to open the file in Wixie and begin working.
When they are finished working in Wixie, students go to the File menu and select Share.
At Wixie's Share dialog, they will see the URL to their project. Students can select the Copy Link button to copy the URL to their project to the device clipboard.

Select Done at the Share dialog.
When students return to Schoology, they open the assignment again and select the Submit Assignment button.
At the Upload dialog, students select the Create tab, add text, and then select Link button to connect to their Wixie Project.
At the Insert/Edit Link dialog, students paste (Ctrl+V or Command +V) the copied URL in the Link/URL box and select the Insert button.
When they return to the Create dialog, students select the Submit button to turn in the assignment.
Teachers grade the assignment
Open the assignment in Schoology. Select the student in the list whose work you want to evaluate.
Their submission will show the link to their work in Wixie.
Select the link to view their work in a new tab.
When you are done, return to Schoology and enter your score in the Grade box at the top.
The grade for the Wixie Project will now appear in your gradebook.
