Orange County Uses ClassLink to Deliver Entire Library of Digital Resources

The Challenge

200,000 Students and staff members needed an easy and reliable way to access a variety of digital learning resources.

More and more classrooms were switching from print to digital resources and yet there was no easy one-stop-shop to access it all for the 200,000 students and staff members.

Choosing ClassLink

Choosing ClassLink for Single Sign-On (SSO)
Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) issued an RFP seeking to solidify the usage of a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution to provide easy access to computing resources for students and staff.  ClassLink submitted a proposal and was selected from several vendors.  The implementation of ClassLink was successful with strong collaboration between both OCPS and ClassLink IT teams.  ClassLink’s engineering team quickly enabled single sign-on to the District’s entire library of digital resources and file access with Active Directory integration.

The Outcome

OCPS can now use a variety of single sign-on technologies including LTI (IMS Global), ADFS/LDAP, oAuth, SAML and more.

Any Device, Anywhere Access
OCPS has implemented BYOD and 1:1 initiatives with a plethora of devices and platforms in use throughout the District. ClassLink is accessible on any device by staff and students at school and home.  ClassLink created the OCPS mobile app for the iPhone, iPad, Chrome, and the web.

“ClassLink has been a calming force at the beginning of the school year rush. We have been able to quickly give our students and teachers access to content and move on to other important parts of the work that has to be done to educate students.”
