As an app developer, you will want to test your application in a variety of different contexts – including, but not limited to:
- as a course/group admin
- as a course/group member
- on a student's homepage
- on a teacher's homepage
- on a parent's homepage
Of course, the contexts that will apply depend on what your application does.
You have access to your own Schoology installation where you can create roles, users, courses, or groups like a regular Schoology administrator.
- Click on the Edit Users tab on the left side of the homepage. From there, you can create/edit users, add roles, and set permissions for each role.
- On the top navigation bar, click on Courses, and then click on Create. To see a full list of previously created courses, click on See All or Browse Courses. From within a course profile, you can add users to the course or promote users to be course administrators (teachers) by clicking on the Members tab.
- On the top navigation bar, click on Groups, and then click on Create. To see a full list of previously created groups, click on See All. From within a group profile, you can add users to the group or promote users to be group administrators by clicking on the Members tab.
Once you have created test users, courses, and/or groups, you can install any application you have created to those areas. To do so, navigate to a user/course/group profile and click on the Test app here button. You can then choose to install or uninstall any of your apps. Please note that even though you push applications by looking at a user's profile, that user will see and open the application from their homepage.
