Infobase is pleased to announce that two new features have been added to its streaming video services and to selected databases: Google Sign-In and the option to share Infobase content to Google Classroom. These new tools–which are offered at no additional cost to customers–will encourage even greater student engagement by enabling students and faculty to easily access and use Infobase content in reports, projects, and classes.
Google Sign-In can now be turned on to allow users to access these Infobase products with their Google credentials. Google Sign-In provides an easy way for students and faculty at Google Apps for Education (GAFE) schools to link their Google accounts with the accounts for the products. This feature must be turned on by the subscriber’s Infobase product account administrator in order to make it available for users.
These same Infobase products also now include a feature that allows Google Classroom users to incorporate database and video content into Classroom courses with the click of a button. Subscribers to these products can share content through Google Classroom by using the Share link on a record detail page in one of the databases, and on the search results page or on the Video Player page in the On Demand products and Learn360.
