Edlink is proud to announce a new client partnership with SchoolRunner.
About SchoolRunner: Schoolrunner is a comprehensive management system that provides a solution for educators’ evidence-based teaching and learning needs. Schoolrunner supports thousands of students in over 100 schools across the United States. Our mission is to help schools make better use of their data and to support schools in driving student success with actionable analytics and powerful management tools.
About the partnership:
SchoolRunner is utilizing Edlink's User Data API to add additional SSO options for users to connect their LMS account. Consequently, the Edlink API will also allow the Schoolrunner platform to work seamlessly with Canvas courses, assignments, and assessments.
Once a user (a student or a teacher) is signed in with their LMS, SchoolRunner can access their courses, assignments, and assessments. Depending on the LMS, SchoolRunner will also be able to access assessment questions and individual student responses to these questions. This makes it easy for to continue providing powerful analysis tools to their customer schools so leadership in those schools can in turn can keep making data‑informed decisions.
Although SchoolRunner was initially interested in utilizing the Canvas portion of the Edlink API, they technically have access to the full reach of the Edlink API and will be ready to say "yes" at the drop of a hat in response to a customer request or an RFP requiring any other systems the Edlink API supports.
"Schools were asking us to help them get data out of their Learning Management System and into SchoolRunner for reporting and gradebook purposes. Edlink saved us a ton of time and money and allowed us to roll out support for more LMS’s in a shorter period of time than we’d ever have been able to do on our own. Their support has been super-responsive and our team has loved working with them."
