PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) September 18, 2017 -- Alma Technologies, Inc. today announces it has integrated its innovative and intuitive K-12 student information system (SIS) with the widely used learning management system (LMS) from Schoology. The new partnership enables schools and districts to customize a solution that supports their unique teaching and learning needs and helps them achieve their progressive educational goals.
Alma’s award-winning SIS is a comprehensive data management solution that offers tight integration with other best-in-class software for a seamless user experience. Schoology is the latest addition to Alma’s network of partners.
“We’ve developed an SIS that’s as easy and enjoyable for educators and students to use as the apps they’re accustomed to at home,” said Andrew Herman, CEO and Co-Founder of Alma. “Schools and districts are freed from the challenges of legacy technologies and empowered to combine the software they need to realize their visions. Together with Schoology, we are providing a complete educator- and learner-centered workflow that allows schools and districts to embrace personalized learning for every student.”
Schools and districts are increasingly making pedagogical and technological shifts to ensure they are future ready. Their success depends on having real-time visibility and clarity of the teaching and learning process provided by integrated SIS and LMS software.
“Alma offers an impressive SIS solution with a wide array of functionality and responsive support that’s captured the attention of a growing segment of the K-12 market,” said Jeremy Friedman, CEO and Co-Founder of Schoology. “We are proud to partner with them to help schools bring all the people, content, and data together to prepare students for the future.”
Across the United States and the world, K-12 institutions are implementing Alma because it provides the reliable, mission-critical data infrastructure they need in a streamlined, modern platform their educators want. The robust solution unites SIS and LMS capabilities along with reporting and analytics, grades and assessment tracking, scheduling, enrollment, school-to-home communications, and more to support the entire learning community. Schools could opt to use Alma for all their student and learning management needs or combine Schoology with Alma’s SIS and other functionality.
Schoology is a popular LMS that provides tools to create engaging content, design lessons, and assess student understanding. The integration improves interoperability between the technology systems for greater convenience, ease-of-use, and time savings for educators, students, and parents while also minimizing IT administration. Users can access both systems with a single sign-on and move seamlessly between them.
With Schoology, Alma customers can:
- Automatically synchronize rosters from the SIS to the LMS through IMS Global One Roster
- Eliminate double data entry such as adding assignment grades from the LMS to the gradebook
- Quickly and easily access homework, files and assignments in the LMS from the SIS
By providing a unified, comprehensive platform and the ability to closely integrate with top third-party applications, Alma offers a flexible solution that addresses the needs of schools and districts across the education landscape—small to large, rural to urban, public to private.
