SAN DIEGO, CA, April 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Wixie is a student publishing and creativity platform. Engrade integrates school and district software and systems into one easy-to-use, cloud-based platform. Schools and districts will be able to manage users in Wixie through their existing Engrade system and provide a single sign-on (SSO) between the two systems.
"We are excited to see two systems that are integral to our digital learning initiative integrate with one another," shared Ryan Imbriale, Executive Director of the Department of Digital Learning at Baltimore County Public Schools.
"Our goal is to make creating with technology a natural part of the learning process. With the Engrade integration, districts can implement Wixie with less effort, and students and staff use an existing log in to access a new learning tool," shares David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.
Once the connection has been made, schools and districts will be able to manage Wixie through their Engrade account and Wixie will automatically keep the data up-to-date. The integration creates efficiencies for schools and districts by only needing to update one system.
Engrade, part of McGraw-Hill Education, unifies the data, curriculum, and tools teachers, schools leaders, and administrators use every day by integrating all of a district's software and systems, including third-party applications and open education resources, into one fully secure and easy-to-use, cloud-based platform. Districts rely on Engrade's powerful single sign-on solution to enhance district-wide communication, plan and evaluate curriculum, manage assessment, and monitor student progress in real time.
