Edsby®, the most comprehensive learning and analytics platform available for K-12 education, now connects to a variety of popular educational technology systems.
Regions, districts and individual private schools that have adopted the Edsby digital learning environment can now verify online submissions for originality using the popular Turnitin and Unicheck plagiarism checking systems. Edsby educators can find open educational resources using Knovation’s netTrekker. Additional Edsby integrations include Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook and connections between Edsby’s calendars, Google Calendar and other popular calendaring programs such as Microsoft Outlook.
Many of the latest integrations come courtesy of Edsby’s support for open standards including the IMS Global Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) protocol, version 2.0.
“Open standards are now becoming robust enough to enable meaningful connections between individual learning applications and platforms like Edsby,” said John Myers, Edsby co-founder and President. “With gradebook write-back now supported by LTI, applications configured by system administrators in Edsby can share student assessment results into Edsby gradebooks without requiring setup by individual teachers. Edsby gives districts, or whole regions, a centralized way to easily deploy edtech apps to the benefit of every educator and student.”
A list of supported applications and instructions on how to connect Edsby to even more edtech applications using LTI can be found at https://www.edsby.com/integrations.
