As smart board technology continues to be integrated into classrooms, teachers are faced with the challenge of logging into all the tools they need to effectively teach their class. One such tool is ClassLink, a comprehensive teaching software that simplifies the login process for teachers and students. ClassLink has become an essential tool for schools that want curriculum flexibility and identity management. In this article, we will explore how it can integrate directly into the identity management system used in the BenQ Board to enable teachers to access everything they need to start teaching with a single tap.
ClassLink is a cloud-based teaching software platform that can simplify the login process for teachers and students to access their online teaching software. Using Single Sign-On (SSO) technology, teachers and students can access all their web applications and files with a single login. Additionally, teachers can create custom groups of students and assign them specific applications and resources based on their needs. This allows teachers to tailor their lessons to individual students or groups of students, ensuring that they receive the support they need to succeed.
In 2023, every BenQ Board is equipped single sign on technology that enables instant teacher personalization from any connected board. One of the main benefits of this single sign on technology is that teachers can spend less time logging into different applications and resources and more time focusing on teaching.
With its advanced Identity and Access Management software, any BenQ Board can enable the teacher to access their programs using ClassLink with a single tap of an NFC card on the board or via a mobile device. The BenQ Board will not only instantly log into the teacher’s ClassLink account, but it will also login to their network drives, cloud drives, and personalize the board with the teachers apps and wallpaper so they can start teaching in seconds.
While many brands of smart boards are built around proprietary curriculum software programs, a BenQ Board equipped with ClassLink facilitates curriculum flexibility by allowing curriculum directors a wider choice of applications and resources – without worrying about losing valuable classroom teaching time. Additionally, ClassLink’s customizable portal allows teachers to organize their resources and applications in a way that suits their teaching style, further enhancing flexibility for both the curriculum director and teacher.
Identity management is a crucial aspect of technology integration in schools, and using a BenQ Board set up with ClassLink is a simple and secure way to ensure teachers have what they need to do their best. Every BenQ Board can be integrated into Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Azure, or Google Workspace systems. Then using BenQ’s Single Sign-On (SSO) technology, administrators simply link ClassLink’s SSO directly to the teachers BenQ Board account so they can immediately access all their web applications and files with a single tap. This eliminates the need for multiple usernames and passwords, saving teachers valuable time. This also ensures the security of sensitive information stored on network and cloud drives.
As smart board technology continues to be integrated into classrooms, the role of identity management software such as IAM and ClassLink will only become more important. When a BenQ Board is setup with ClassLink, school administrators can save valuable teaching time, facilitate curriculum flexibility, and provide valuable insights into student performance.
