Edsby Announces Integration with Microsoft Office 365
– New capabilities enable single sign on and more for K-12 schools and districts using the popular Edsby and Microsoft cloud-based solutions –
ONTARIO, Canada (June 9, 2015) – Edsby®, developers of an innovative learning management system built for K-12 school districts that engages teachers, parents and students using modern technologies, now integrates with Microsoft Office 365.
“Using Microsoft Office in the classroom provides students with the tried and tested tools they need to help be successful today and in the future,” said Marc Seaman, VP of Education with Microsoft Canada. “This is just one example of Microsoft’s commitment to helping our youth and educators do more and achieve more.”
One aspect of the integration is in the area of single sign-on support. Edsby users can now authenticate via Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory and the OAuth2 protocol. This enables a convenient one-click login for Edsby users already authenticated with Office 365.
“Many of our K-12 education customers are moving to the cloud for more and more of their operations and are using Microsoft Azure and Office 365-based platforms as a strategic part of this move,” said John Myers, President of Edsby. “We’re delighted to have Edsby closely integrated with these key Microsoft technologies and the exciting benefits this brings to the educators and students at organizations using Edsby.”
In addition, this new integration enables Edsby users to select documents from their Microsoft OneDrive file store as teachers and students collaborate within Edsby classes and groups and as students submit work digitally to teachers for assessment.
