ClassLink, the leader in single sign-on and rostering solutions for education, announced an important new relationship with Istation, an award-winning comprehensive e-learning program used by more than 4 million students across the world. This relationship will provide millions of educators and students with secure OneClick access to Istation, enabling faster, easier access to one of education’s most trusted providers.

ClassLink OneClick technology enables access to web, Windows, and Google applications, and instant access to files at school and in the cloud. With more than 5,000 single sign-on connectors and comprehensive use of open technology standards, ClassLink is the most inclusive single sign-on platform in education today.

Istation is a global leader among comprehensive e-learning programs, helping pre-K – 8th grade students with accurate assessments, engaging curriculum, and trusted teacher tools. Along with Istation’s highly interactive digital curriculum, teachers also have access to a library of thousands of lessons perfect for instructing small groups or an entire class. Comprehensive reports are immediately available for educators, administrators, and parents.

ClassLink CEO Berj Akian praised the relationship: “Providers like Istation are exactly why we want to streamline access for teachers and students. Schools benefit immensely when we can eliminate barriers to adoption.” Akian continued, “Meantime, providers shouldn’t have to worry about paying third-party single sign-on providers for the right to connect with schools. We are creating a rising tide that lifts everyone: students, teachers, ed tech leaders, and the providers that serve them.”

Istation’s Chief Technology Officer, Bill Lowrey, echoed Akian’s sentiments, saying, “ClassLink and Istation are doing important work together by making it easier for students and teachers to access the resources they need. Both organizations are working on making technology integration easier. Our hope is that by reducing the time and effort necessary to implement critical technology, we are freeing up more time for educators to spend with students and in the learning environment.”

Together, the companies are leveraging LTI to provide a rich integration of two world-class providers. Additionally, both companies are certified by IMS Global Learning Consortium for OneRoster™ Conformance, which means schools can securely and seamlessly update and integrate student rosters.

Pat Abbott, IT Special Projects Coordinator for Richardson Independent School District (Texas), shared her support for this collaboration, saying, “It was incredible to see two companies work together for us to improve technology access. We are so pleased that ClassLink and Istation have this proactive approach – it allows us to better serve teachers and students, which is what we’re all about.”

Upon hearing that the two firms are working together around OneRoster, IMS Global Learning CEO Rob Abel lauded the joint effort. “We are thrilled with progress that companies ClassLink and Istation are making with IMS Global Learning standards,” he said. “Educators everywhere benefit when their industry partners collaborate for the greater good of students and teachers.”
