New York, NY, November 6, 2017—Infobase, the award-winning provider of digital reference content to the school and library community, has announced a partnership with Clever, a leading educational technology platform.
This partnership integration offers a powerful new single sign-on option for subscribers to Infobase’s Learn360 and Classroom Video On Demand in schools and districts using Clever—providing a seamless online experience where users log in only once with their Clever credentials to access all parts of Learn360 and Classroom Video On Demand. Users can choose to sign in with the “Log in with Clever” button on the Learn360 or Classroom Video platform or use the Learn360 or Classroom Video app inside the Clever Portal.
Clever is a no-charge solution that provides a convenient way for districts and schools to organize, access, and manage their online resources. District account administrators can control whether this option is “on” or “off” for all users in their district.
Learn360 is Infobase’s premier multimedia resource for K–12 districts, containing thousands of videos, interactives, images, student activities, timelines, and other assets. Classroom Video On Demand is the company’s dedicated high school streaming video subscription, with thousands of full-length videos and video clips across a range of curricular subjects. New content is added daily to both resources. Infobase’s other partner integrations include Schoology, Google Classroom, Moodle, Blackboard, Clever, ClassLink, Canvas, D2L (Desire2Learn), and others.
Infobase, a Veronis Suhler Stevenson portfolio company, is an educational solutions company providing award-winning digital reference content to the school and library community. Under such well-known brands as Facts On File, The World Almanac®, Learn360, and Films Media Group, Infobase provides students, educators, and librarians with a broad range of products that both enhance and enrich the learning experience. For more than 75 years, Infobase has been a reliable, authoritative resource for supporting the needs of schools, colleges and universities, and public libraries, providing flexible options for accessing educational content whether in school, at the library, or at home.
Clever was founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable. Today, half of K–12 schools in the U.S. and more than 300 application partners trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom. In 2014, Clever won the Crystal Clear award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own “Share my Lesson” platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100 employees and is based in San Francisco.
