ONTARIO, Canada (June 18, 2015) – Edsby, an innovative learning management system built for K-12 school districts that engages teachers, parents and students using modern technologies, now integrates with Google Apps for Education.

“Google Apps provides us with many useful capabilities, but Google by itself only offers limited learning management features,” said Ally Wenzel, Director of Technology for Stevenson School, a private school in Pebble Beach, California. “Connecting Google Apps for Education with Edsby gives our students, teachers and administrators a robust digital teaching and learning experience.”

Google Apps for Education provides students and teachers with a popular way to author, collaborate on and store documents. When combined with Edsby, schools and districts enjoy a comprehensive set of capabilities that include familiar social feed-like features for every class taught by every teacher, group discussions, school news, attendance, course planning, timetables, grade books, report cards, in-depth analytics, parent engagement and more—all with convenient single sign-on and tight integration between the two cloud-based solutions.

“We integrated Edsby with Google Apps for Education at the request of many of our K-12 education customers who are strategically moving to the cloud,” said John Myers, president of Edsby. “This integration provides new and innovative benefits to teachers and students through convenient single sign-on and one-click Google Drive access.”

Edsby and Google Apps have little overlap. Features of both platforms complement each other. Students can work in Google Drive and share documents in Edsby groups and classes and submit work to teachers privately and securely. Teachers using Google Apps can easily use Edsby to share work, engage with parents and view student schedules, attendance, grades and overall progress against local, state/provincial or federal standards, and more, with no additional login.

Edsby also recently announced integration with Microsoft Office 365, enabling Edsby users to authenticate via Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory and access documents from their Microsoft OneDrive file storage. Edsby’s Google Apps integration and Office 365 integration can be used simultaneously by the many education organizations that make both solutions available to their staff.
