ClassLink and Classworks®, a leader in digital instruction, announced their official partnership for single sign-on and rostering. Classworks utilizes both the convenience of ClassLink OneClick for single sign-on and OneRoster–the class rostering solution IT departments around the country are raving about–for class rostering across all technology in a district. With more than 3,000 single sign-on connectors, ClassLink has brought together more resources than all other single sign-on platforms combined.
Jerry Henley, Sr. Vice President, Classworks Technology and Development, praised the partnership, “We consider ourselves a dedicated partner to open education standards that support improved student learning. Our goal is to give schools everything they need to succeed. We consider ClassLink a true partner to providers like Classworks by making the sign-on and class rostering process for our schools easy, fast and free.”
“In the School District of Pickens County, we are 1:1 in grades 6 through 12 with BYOD at the elementary grades,” explains Barbara Nesbitt, Ph.D., Director of Instructional Technology, Pickens County School District. “We are truly excited about the new OneRoster initiative, as well as the partnership between ClassLink and Classworks. We’ve had Classworks in our district for nearly ten years. With single sign-on between ClassLink and Classworks along with automated rostering, our students and teachers can easily access their digital instruction without wasting valuable instructional time.”
ClassLink CEO, Berj Akian, echoed the sentiments, “A rising tide of partners in education view ClassLink as the best path forward when it comes to single sign-on and class rostering. The relationship with Classworks is emblematic of a partnership model that benefits everyone. This model is made possible by ClassLink’s ability to leverage open technology standards, avoid unnecessary fees to partners, and focus on doing what’s in the best interest of educators.”
ClassLink provides OneClick and OneRoster. OneClick enables single sign-on access to web and Windows applications, and instant access to files at school and in the cloud. OneRoster easily and securely delivers class rosters to any publisher using open technology standards. Accessible from any computer, tablet or smartphone, ClassLink is ideal for 1to1 and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. ClassLink adoptions continue to accelerate across the US, as does its roster of partners. ClassLink OneClick is now the preferred single sign-on platform for thousands of schools and districts around the world and for an increasing number of publishers and platform providers.
