About Ellipsis Education:
Ellipsis Education (Ellipsis) is one of the top computer science curriculums to build educator confidence and capacity. It helps educators of all experience levels get started and be effective with computer science instruction. Ellipsis courses come with everything educators need to get students going: detailed lesson plans (beyond just coding), pacing guides, standards maps, and ongoing support.
About the relationship:
Ellipsis was in a transition period. The team moved onto its own platform to gain the flexibility to build out their user experience for IT admins and educators. Part of this flexibility included adding single sign-on (SSO) for users – a top request from learning institutions looking to adopt Ellipsis.
Without previous integration experience, it wasn’t clear how much time and effort the development team would have to dedicate to build these integrations – but the team knew it wasn’t going to be easy. That is until Ellipsis’s Gerrit VanderLugt received a cold (but tailored) email from Edlink offering a solution to Ellipsis’s interoperability problem.
After a few conversations, it was clear how Ellipsis could benefit from working with Edlink. With one integration to Edlink, Ellipsis could host dozens of SSO LMS and IAM provider connections, like Google Classroom, Clever, and Canvas (to name a few). To make its user experiences even more seamless, the Ellipsis team could use the 5-minute IT Admin Onboarding Flow (part of Edlink’s out-of-the-box integration toolset) so that new learning institutions can self-onboard easily. Plus with the Edlink Dashboard, the Ellipsis team could use powerful data management tools to enrich, transform, or limit data sharing as needed. With Edlink’s support, Ellipsis is ready to grow and manage interoperability at scale.
Edlink is the fastest and easiest way to integrate your learning platform with school data systems. Working with Edlink's Unified API saves development teams headaches, gets operational teams to-market faster, and helps sales teams win more deals.
Edlink currently supports 90+ edtech companies and is currently working behind the scenes to help over 35 million students use their edtech products seamlessly with their school’s LMS, SIS, and identity management platform (like Clever, or ClassLink). We’re trusted to exchange sensitive data securely by edtech companies, school IT administrators, and district leaders in over 2,500 educational institutions, and growing.
