Live integration between Atlas and Schoolbox aims to streamline workflow and simplify data sharing for teachers and K-12 schools

LMS-integrationRubicon International, the creator of the curriculum management software platform Atlas, has announced a partnership with the learning management system (LMS) Schoolbox, created by Alaress.

The collaboration will enable a bilateral approach to developing an integration between Atlas and the LMS/virtual learning environment (VLE) provided by Schoolbox.

This live integration will share planned and taught curriculum information designed in Atlas with the LMS system, which delivers the curriculum resources and assessments through to students.

Further, the integration will see that both Alaress and Rubicon International provide a single sign on (SSO) approach to seamlessly move users between the two software products.

This agreement will allow schools to take advantage of tools for curriculum design and planning with the confidence that the information will flow into their learning management system, providing the opportunity for further connections.

Janet Burreson, Partner at Rubicon International stated, “The Rubicon team is always looking for ways to innovate around strong teaching and learning practices, and views partnerships like these fundamental to our organizational mission of improving learning for all students.“

“Having an effective curriculum directly connected to individual student outcomes is critical to improving teaching and learning. For schools looking for continuity between their curriculum and their instruction, this type of integration just makes sense.” said Jason Mendenhall, Partner at Rubicon International.

“By working closely across both the technical and management teams of our respective organizations, we aim to create workflow improvements for shared customers that have never been available before” said Sean Richards, Co-Founder and Director of Alaress.

James Leckie, Co-Founder and product manager for Schoolbox said, “Our mutual clients will benefit from higher quality data, minimized data-duplication, improved workflows and a better overall user experience from this agreement”.

This integration will see both products focus on their strengths while providing a live integration for the data to move between the two platforms.
