Partnership will help ensure secure data integration between LMS, SIS

data-integrationitslearning has announced a new relationship with Clever to provide seamless and secure data integration between the learning management system and a school’s or district’s student information system (SIS).

Specifically, schools and districts using itslearning can now use the Clever platform to ensure that student enrollment records, staff accounts, and class rosters are quickly integrated and automatically updated. Furthermore, with Clever Instant Login, students can now more easily access the itslearning platform with one click from a secure, individual portal without having to manage multiple usernames and passwords.

Designed specifically for the K-12 sector, itslearning is a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that enables teachers to more effectively engage today’s “digitally wired” students anytime, anywhere and on any device.

“The purpose of educational technology is all about its ability to enhance the instructional experience for students and teachers,” said itslearning vice president of sales and marketing, Matt Dobosh. “But if students and teachers aren’t able to easily access software programs and digital curriculum then we are keeping them from their respective missions – of differentiated and personalized teaching and learning.”

As a student-centered learning environment, itslearning gives teachers, students and parents access, as appropriate, to course materials, assignments, communities for collaboration, professional development tools and student progress reports. The platform’s seamless integration with existing systems via Clever creates a user-friendly interface that gives teachers a way to share instructional resources, assignments and activities, and assessments with students and parents via personalized dashboards.

At the same time, students have the power to decide how they learn as the solution automatically adapts to support learning styles that offer the best opportunities for success. A proprietary “standards mastery and recommendation engine” facilitates remediation, acceleration and review by automating the recommendation of resources and activities based upon standards mastery assessments. The recommendations are also tailored specifically to the individual learning styles of each student – regardless of age, ability level, interests or special requirements.

“Partnering with exciting and innovative companies like itslearning that empower teachers and enhance learning is Clever’s goal,” said Dan Carroll, chief product officer and co-founder of Clever. “Today, Clever is used by more than a third of K-12 schools in America. Together with itslearning, we can extend the reach of our platforms and improve learning outcomes in even more schools across the country.”
