Schoology Expands Partner Ecosystem With BrainPOP Integration
NEW YORK (March 22, 2017) – Schoology, Inc., the leader in learning management systems (LMS) for education, understands that educator and student success requires an ecosystem of content partners and learning tools. Schoology’s integration with BrainPOP makes it easier to access BrainPOP content with single sign-on and embed links to content within individual educators’ curriculum.
BrainPOP’s digital, cross-curricular content is used by many Schoology Enterprise customers. The integration unifies the user experience for both students and educators. To raise awareness of the integration, BrainPOP is offering an extended free trial to all Schoology Enterprise users for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year.
“Educational institutions expect all of their tools and service providers to work together,” said Jeremy Friedman, Schoology CEO. “We believe the best way to make that possible for our customers is through open, industry-wide interoperability standards. We worked closely with the BrainPOP team to create a seamless user experience that makes learning accessible for all our users.”
“Whether students are creating their own BrainPOP movies, designing concept maps, or writing reflections on key moments in game play, teachers will be thrilled at the level of engagement and uniquely personalized experience the Schoology integration facilitates,” said Din Heiman, BrainPOP’s COO and General Manager.
Schoology Enterprise customers may sign up for and take advantage of the free BrainPOP trial for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year. The trial is available exclusively to Schoology Enterprise customers, and includes BrainPOP Jr. (K-3), BrainPOP, BrainPOP ESL, and BrainPOP Español. It also includes access to My BrainPOP and its individual account system, which help educators keep track of learning. Teachers will be able to see quiz results and class-wide analysis; review and provide feedback on learning artifacts; assign work; explore student creation tools like the brand-new Make-a-Movie, and much more. After a simple, one-time setup process, students and educators can leverage single sign-on when logging into their BrainPOP accounts.
