Clever’s single sign-on capabilities will provide educators and students easy access to EXO U’s operating-neutral platform

exo-digitalEXO U Inc., developer of the newly launched EXO U Digital Education Platform, announced a partnership agreement with Clever, Inc., a provider of secure single sign-on access for school-based learning software and student information systems.

The company plans to continue to enter into agreements with additional partners and distributors to enhance its product offering and expand its reach into the education sector.

The partnership with Clever enables EXO U users to benefit from Instant Login, a single sign-on feature that delivers seamless, one-click login capabilities and secure data management for teachers and students.

Educators are asking for a secure single sign-on solution that will allow students access to an ecosystem of applications. Currently Clever is used by millions of K-12 students in more than 35,000 schools to improve the login experience.

EXO U joins more than 150 learning applications that currently leverage Clever’s product to make the login process simple and efficient. Additionally, schools that use Clever can securely sync enrollment data from their school information system to EXO U and other applications they use. This partnership can potentially make the integration of EXO U’s Digital Education Platform into K-12 schools easier.

“Clever’s rapid growth and penetration into U.S. K-12 schools in less than three years demonstrates the strong need for educational solutions that can improve access to digital learning. That emphasis matches EXO U’s commitment to providing secure, easy-to-use ecosystems where teachers can manage all their digital tools in one place and engage with their students instantly on any device. Clever is a natural fit for the EXO U platform,” said Shan Ahdoot, CEO and co-founder of EXO U.

“Partnering with innovative companies like EXO U that empower teachers and enhance learning is Clever’s goal. With Instant Login, great companies like EXO U are saving teachers significant time so they can focus on what they do best: improving learning outcomes,” said Dan Carroll, CPO and co-founder of Clever.
