Clever Adds New SIS to Data Integration Platform
Clever is now compatible with student information system Administrator’s Plus, allowing the data integration startup to pull enrollment information, like student names and birth dates, from the SIS to the third-party learning applications it connects with.
A free service for schools, Clever connects data that already exists in the SIS with learning programs, like Khan Academy, to reduce manual data entry. In that way, new students can be automatically set up with their own accounts across a number of applications. School administrators still maintain control over what data is shared, and with which programs.
The partnership will also let Administrator’s Plus-enrolled schools take advantage of Clever’s single sign-on tool, letting students or teachers start various pieces of software without having to log in.
Clever also works with a number of other SISs, including Pearson’s PowerSchool, Infinite Campus, Skyward, iPass, STI iNOW, and TEAMS.
