ClassLink Suite - ClassLink

ClassLink makes it easy for entire school systems to implement, access, and use all their digital resources—whether students are in-class or learning remotely. ClassLink’s platform includes tools for secure single sign-on, automated rostering and provisioning, as well as robust usage analytics school systems can use to guide instruction, engagement support, purchasing, and professional development. 

ClassLink creates an environment where plug-and-play and interchanging apps aren’t just possible—they’re seamless. That approach is consistent with an educator’s mindset. As they learn, grow, and try new things, there is always opportunity for new technologies to come into play - all while making everything accessible from any device. 

Furthermore, in an era of remote learning, school leaders need access to analytics that paint a clear picture of student engagement with digital learning resources. Without that data, it’s difficult to know whether students are engaged and learning or struggling and in need of support. Districts using ClassLink have access to an abundance of data points they could use to find answers to questions that would drive decisions. On top of that, ClassLink is committed to protecting student data and privacy with AES-256 bit encryption, multi-factor authentication, and serves as your own private cloud. 

You can see examples of how ClassLink supported school systems through remote and hybrid learning in several of our recent case studies, including Fulton County Schools, School District of Janesville, and North Penn School District.

ClassLink connects educators and students with their classroom, curriculum, and each other in richer, more powerful ways. As leading advocates for open data standards, ClassLink offers instant access to apps and files with single sign-on, streamlines class rostering, automates account provisioning, and provides actionable analytics.

ClassLink empowers 14 million students and staff in over 1,800 school systems.

  • ManagedMethods - ManagedMethods

    ManagedMethods is the leading Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity, student safety, and compliance platform for K-12 school districts. The platform monitors district Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 email, file sharing, chat, and video apps 24/7/365 and empowers district IT admins with full visibility and control of their cloud environment.

    ManagedMethods uses cloud-native API integrations to help district IT admins secure sensitive data on any device, from any location. The platform uses artificial intelligence-powered malware and phishing threat protection, detects and remediates account takeovers, and secures data from malicious and accidental breaches. Out-of-the-box and customizable data loss prevention policies allow IT admins to automate enforcement, including notifications, password resets, revoke sharing, and other tasks without the need for custom coding or switching to different tools.

    IT and student resource teams also use ManagedMethods to monitor student safety signals in district Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 apps. Turnkey and customizable policies detect signals such as cyberbullying, self-harm, discrimination, threats of violence, explicit content, and domestic abuse in both text and image content. ManagedMethods does not collect or store any student information, nor do company employees view any information without the explicit request of district administrators in the context of a product support ticket.

    View examples of how ManagedMethods helps give Lenoir City Schools, New Albany-Floyd County School Corporation, and Warrior Run School District visibility and control into their Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 domains.

    ManagedMethods makes Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 security easy for K-12 IT teams—no proxy, no agent, no extension, and no special training needed.
