Session Description:
We’ve rolled out several software applications for our 1:1 Chromebook initiative that we believe are critical in order to become “Digital on Day One". Our most important platform is ClassLink. ClassLink is our single sign-on application. With one login, students, teachers, and staff have one-click access into their web applications. We put links to all of our digital textbooks, online assessments, and other instructional web applications into our ClassLink Launchpad. We are able to assign apps to specific users, grade levels or groups. Students, teachers, and staff may also add links to their own web apps. We also use OneRoster, an open source IMS Global standard, to roster many of our textbooks and applications. With OneRoster we send one set of files to our vendors and textbook publishing companies daily. These companies then use these files to generate the rosters and login credentials our students and teachers need.

Teachers no longer waste valuable time manually maintaining class rosters for these applications. Because of ClassLink, our teachers and students are not wasting time finding URLs to web apps, nor are they struggling to remember their logins and passwords to different sites. They have one login, with one-click access to content.
