The platform provides a single interface for users to search, access and manage their digital resources from educational publisher courseware, OERs, licensed libraries, uploaded videos, Google Drive, and more. SAFARI Montage is interoperable with nearly all major LMS’s and Google Classroom.

Andrew Schlessinger, CEO and Co-Founder of SAFARI Montage, lauded the relationship, “ClassLink is committed to improving access for teachers and students and has been a leading advocate for collaboration. Classlink is focused on helping schools and their providers make strong and reliable connections, and we look forward to deepening our integrations with them.

ClassLink CEO, Berj Akian, echoed the sentiments of Schlessinger, “SAFARI Montage is one of the most powerful instructional platforms in K-12 today, so it stands to reason that schools want their teachers and students to have unencumbered access. We’re pleased to engage with SAFARI Montage because it means that, together, we can help schools engage with digital learning.”

“ClassLink and SAFARI Montage demonstrate why it is so important for education technology providers to come together,” said Orange County Public Schools (Florida). “We’re big fans of both companies working together, which should be a sounding call for others providers to follow suit because schools demand better, secure access to the resources they need to be successful.”

For single sign-on, ClassLink and SAFARI Montage are leveraging LTI to provide a rich integration of two world-class providers. To enable schools to securely and seamlessly provisions rosters, the companies are utilizing OneRoster, an open technology standard from IMS Global Learning Consortium.
