As we move into the future of learning, edtech companies are making moves toward greater ease of use within their own platforms and with partner organizations.
Back in November of 2020, just a few short months ago, EdTech Digest featured an interview with Nicholas Svensson, CEO of SMART Technologies, on the integrations that company is involved in.
For the latest example, Discovery Education just announced a series of updates to its flexible, award-winning K-12 learning platform that will keep teachers and students connected to the service’s content, instructional strategies, and professional learning resources wherever learning is taking place.
A leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources and professional learning for K-12 classrooms, they are now providing all educators and students a simple, secure, and reliable user experience. Recognizing that every school system has their own unique technological configuration, the company has architected its K-12 learning platform to maintain maximum flexibility in a variety of areas including:
Login updates and access through website, Clever, Classlink, Google, MS Office 365, SAML/ADFS, and in North Carolina, NCEdCloud.
Learning Management System (LMS) integration into Microsoft Teams, Canvas, Schoology, Google Classroom, Brightspace by D2L, and Infinite Campus.
Rostering – To securely import and manage user and class data, Discovery Education’s services can now roster students and classes using Clever, Classlink, OneRoster, or CSV uploads.
“In today’s classrooms, creating equitable, engaging learning experiences is not only the biggest challenge educators face, but also their most rewarding professional experience,” says CEO Scott Kinney.
“Together, these recent updates to our award-winning K-12 platform empowers educators to more easily integrate the most relevant, authentic, and engaging content, instructional strategies, and professional learning into their work each day, ensuring students the opportunity to continue learning in any environment,” says Kinney.
