SAN FRANCISCO, March 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Clever, the most widely used single sign-on (SSO) portal in K–12 school districts, and Nearpod, the award-winning interactive student engagement platform, today announced a new partnership. Now, users can easily access Nearpod products directly from their Clever Portal, saving teachers valuable instructional time.
Over half of U.S. K-12 schools now use Clever to simplify and secure login to digital learning applications for students and teachers. With this partnership, teachers have faster access to Nearpod's thousands of ready-to-run lessons and interactive classroom activities with a simple and secure single sign-on.
"Nearpod excels at creating impactful learning opportunities through innovative content," said Anne Murguia, VP Marketing at Clever. "We're thrilled to partner with Nearpod to deliver a delightful and engaging learning experience in classrooms everywhere."
Nearpod's classroom model promotes a more inclusive, more engaging classroom edtech experience.

By partnering with Clever, Nearpod furthers its mission to provide educators with the resources they can use to immediately impact student engagement in the classroom and transform teaching.
"As more classrooms integrate technology to personalize learning and increase student engagement, it's crucial to provide a simple and secure way to access these resources," said Rajeev Arora, Chief Marketing Officer at Nearpod. "Our partnership with Clever will allow teachers to seamlessly access Nearpod without missing a moment of learning time in the classroom."
