Who knew single sign-on (SSO) would spread so quickly in education? The Clever portal was introduced three years ago to simplify access to digital learning. Today, almost 30% of K-12 students in the US use Clever for a simple and delightful login experience. We’ve been blown away by all of the innovative ways that schools […]

While the goal of education technology is to improve the classroom experience, in so many cases, software is purchased without ever being tested in the classroom.

And we’ve heard from some districts that they’d like to standardize on OneRoster as their single CSV export, whether it’s for Clever or otherwise. Since we’re always looking to make districts’ lives easier, we’re doing the obvious thing.
