Clifton, NJ – December 9, 2020 - As easy access to digital resources grows increasingly critical to learning, the new ClassLink and Scrible partnership demonstrates how interoperability and open standards support remote and hybrid learning.
ClassLink, the leading single sign-on platform for education, and Scrible, an advanced research and writing platform, now integrate using open standards. This partnership makes adopting and using Scrible seamless for students and schools that use ClassLink.
“The pandemic demands that technology be easier to use for educators and students. So, we’re excited to work closely with ClassLink during this trying time to help students easily access Scrible, particularly from home during distance learning. Integrating with ClassLink’s rostering solution also helps teachers get their classes up and running in Scrible faster, which is vital since teachers now face unprecedented time constraints.”
Easy adoption and use are paramount right now as Scrible strives to support the 50% of secondary students who struggle with research and aren’t ready for college writing. Scrible centralizes and simplifies the work so teachers can continue doing valuable research and writing papers and projects with their students from any location despite school closures.
As Christina Iremonger, Chief Digital Officer of Vancouver Public Schools in Washington, explains, this new partnership perfectly demonstrates how interoperable technology simplifies digital learning throughout a school system. Students and teachers stay focused on learning—not logging in or setting up classes—and tech teams can support students and families rather than troubleshooting new tech.
“It’s exciting to see Scrible partnered with ClassLink,” says Iremonger, whose district uses both platforms. “Their close working relationship creates synergy for school districts like us because they can work together to quickly resolve issues and improve the experience for teachers and students without requiring time and attention from district staff. This is a great example of districts benefiting from their solution providers being integrated and working well together.”
“This partnership exemplifies the benefits to an entire district when their vendor partners are working together. Tech teams aren’t overburdened with integration snags, students have instant access to learning resources, and educators don’t lose teaching time to log in and access issues.”
