Online School Made Simple: K12 Inc. Introduces New Tech Tools for Thousands of Students
K12 has more than 20 years of experience delivering online and in-person instruction. The company leverages its expertise in integrated platforms and technology, which are time-tested and built specifically for online learning, to deliver a personalized learning experience to students across the country.
This fall, the company will begin using its newly redesigned online school (OLS) for kindergarten through fifth grade.
With updated visual designs and improved speed, accessibility, and scalability, the new OLS will provide an even better learning experience for the youngest learners in the K12-powered education ecosystem. In addition, K12’s new fully responsive mobile-friendly platform will allow OLS learners to work from anywhere more independently.
“At K12, we know providing online learning is complex, but we strive to make it simple,” said
Gone are the days when students need to remember multiple usernames and passwords. Included in K12’s new technology is ClassLink LaunchPad—an award-winning platform that gives students single sign-on access to the entire K12 library of apps, links, and school resources from one location and on any device.
ClassLink helps students and educators by eliminating time wasted on login issues. Both students and teachers will also have the ability to track engagement with resources.
“ClassLink’s mission is to remove barriers between students and impactful education content,” said CEO and Founder
The new OLS and ClassLink tools complement K12’s existing technology-rich online platform, experienced online teachers, and interactive, standards-aligned curriculum.
