ClassLink and Knovation Team Up To Enable Simpler Access to High-Quality Curated OER

ClassLink Designated Preferred Integration Services Partner

Clifton, NJ – October 3, 2018 – ClassLink, the leader in single sign-on, class rostering, and learning resource analytics, announced a strategic partnership with Knovation for improving access to their dynamic collection of professionally-evaluated, standards-aligned online learning resources for K-12 learners. Knovation has designated ClassLink as a Preferred Integration Services partner in K-12 education for its flagship products, icurio and netTrekker.

icurio is a digital curriculum application that leverages the wealth of engaging online resources from the Knovation Content Collection to design and deliver digital lessons. netTrekker is a web application that allows teachers and students to search and share the wealth of reliable online resources from the Knovation Content Collection – hundreds of thousands of professionally-evaluated, standards-aligned, engaging, online resources covering all subject areas, all grade levels, and all learning resource types, ready to be used.

The pairing of the two companies is fitting; both have a charge to unlock student potential. ClassLink empowers students and teachers around the world with instant access to their learning resources. Knovation provides access to high-quality digital content to engage students, add depth and consistency to curriculum, and allow teachers to get back to what they were intended to do: teach.

“Open educational resources, when properly curated and organized, empower teachers and impact teaching and learning”, shared Randy Wilhelm, Knovation’s Chief Executive Officer. Wilhelm continued, “By teaming up with ClassLink, we are able to deliver these resources to students in one simple click, which will translate to better usage of these valuable resources.”

In addition to its award-winning single sign-on solution, school districts and higher education institutions using ClassLink have access to ClassLink Roster Server, a robust class rostering solution that enables fast, secure delivery of rosters directly into digital learning applications, including those products offered by Knovation.

“We’re pleased to build our relationship with Knovation, which was not only an early pioneer in organizing digital resources for teaching and learning but remains a leading innovator, ” said Patrick Devanney ClassLink’s Vice President Interoperability. Devanney continued, “Working together will enable us to fulfill our shared goal of promoting access by putting students and educators in a better position to achieve their goals.”
