New York (May 10, 2017) SAFARI Montage and Schoology have partnered to enable mutual K-12 clients to seamlessly integrate the SAFARI Montage LOR within Schoology’s award-winning LMS. The enhanced integration enables teachers to leverage SAFARI Montage LOR’s rich resources as well as district-curated learning objects while building engaging lessons and curriculum within Schoology.

“We are pleased to partner with Schoology to allow our co-customers to combine our refined LOR with Schoology’s user-friendly LMS tools. Every district needs a place to store all of their content in one place to be searched and accessed by all,” said Andrew Schlessinger, CEO and Co-Founder, SAFARI Montage.

SAFARI Montage LOR users will now have Single Sign-On access to Schoology from their dashboard along with the ability to easily add SAFARI Montage learning objects, segments, playlists or lessons to Schoology courses. The integration will also enable co-customers to launch a federated search of the SAFARI Montage LOR directly from within the Schoology interface and embed LOR resources directly within a Schoology course.

The partnership was implemented using industry-wide interoperability standards. Both Schoology and SAFARI Montage support and promote IMS Global LTI and OneRoster standards. Support for standards is critical to districts that expect all of their learning tools to work together.

“The reality of education today is that teachers are busy and require simple ways to build curriculum, combined with a structured, managed way to deploy assignments to students. Schoology and SAFARI Montage mutual clients can leverage integration to pull together resources from multiple sources and better engage students with the best possible content,” said Ryan Hwang, VP of Product from Schoology. “The partnership between Schoology and SAFARI Montage will be a valuable asset to our mutual school district clients that want to advance their personalized learning and competency based education programs.”

To promote the partnership, Schoology and SAFARI Montage will run demonstrations of the SAFARI Montage LOR in Schoology in both of their respective booths at the upcoming ISTE event in San Antonio on June 26-28. SAFARI Montage’s Dr. Tim Clark will also be presenting the new integration at Schoology NEXT, the Schoology user conference to be held in Chicago on July 23-26.
