ClassLink Announces QuickCard App
Fewer Steps enables quicker access for everyone, especially younger students and students with specialized needs
October 18, 2018 – Clifton, NJ – ClassLink, the leader in single sign-on, class rostering, and learning resource analytics, announced the release of QuickCard available now on the ios app store. QuickCard app is a brand-new and completely simplified version of the original LaunchPad login option.
For schools using ClassLink Launchpad Web Edition, QuickCard app allows users to open the app and immediately scan their QuickCard to begin accessing all of their learning applications. ClassLink, already considered the most expansive and inclusive single sign-on platform in education, has introduced a simple tool that is transforming the way schools manage access. This is especially true for younger students that have yet to master the literacy and typing skills required for manual login, and for students that have unique needs preventing them from typing on a keyboard.
David Schubert, Instructional Technology Teacher at DeSoto Trail Elementary, a school in the Leon County Schools district in Tallahassee FL, applauded ClassLink for creating the new app, “The new QuickCard app is perfect. It allows our kids to have a sense of independence when they use the computer now.”
ClassLink CTO, Stan Watts, cited a review of the company’s analytics, which revealed a rising number of users logging in to LaunchPad via QuickCards. This motivated the ClassLInk team to launch a new streamlined version, sharing, “While QuickCard has always represented a streamlined option for secure login, we knew it was important to enable faster access for students of all ages and needs. By reducing them to just one click and the wave of a card, we are ensuring fast, equitable access for all.”
