Joining a Schoology Group
Groups – Groups are casual, un-moderated collections of topic specific materials. Groups can be used to connect with colleagues, collaborate, share materials, and more. The two primary methods the State Office uses Groups are:
- To archive technical assistance resources such as webinar recordings, transcripts of recordings, handouts or briefs;
- For discussion among Group participants. Not all Group discussions are moderated.
Each Group opens up to a discussion board where the creator of the Group has provided a welcome message. Resources and materials are located in the Resources folder accessible in the menu on the left side of your screen.
Please note that participation in a Group does not afford you CEHs unless it has been explicitly outlined in a Group invitation.

Looking to join a Course?
In this context, Courses are the structure for an online unit of study on a specific topic and led by an instructor/facilitator. Courses are generally used for professional development topics such as instructional practice or unpacking the standards, and not for technical assistance.
Access codes to Courses will only be made available to those individuals who register for a Professional Development Course through the Maine PD Portal. CEHs are awarded to those who participate and complete course activities.
