How does ClassLink Single-Sign-On (SSO) work?
Single-sign-on allows your students to only have to remember one login, to access ClassLink’s LaunchPad. Once they have logged into ClassLink, the student can click on any app that is available to them on their LaunchPad and it will redirect them to that app’s page and log them in automatically.
How does ClassLink Rostering work?
Rostering works the same as SSO, except if a student logs into the Type to Learn app and there is no matching User for that student in the program (based on email address), that User is automatically created in the program and then logged in. This means your teachers or admins don’t have to worry about adding new students to the application, only on the ClassLink platform.
What roles are synced between ClassLink and Type to Learn?
|ClassLink Role||Type to Learn Role|
|Account Administrator||Organization Admin|
My students don’t have an email address. Can we still use ClassLink?
Unfortunately, no. In order for ClassLink to work with Type to Learn there needs to be a unique identifier, which is the student’s email address.
Does it cost anything to use ClassLink?
Yes. There is a cost to schools for utilizing the ClassLink platform. Request a demo of ClassLink to talk with their team about pricing and setting up a ClassLink account.
How long does it take to set up the integration?
Once your Type to Learn account is ready to integrate and you’ve added the app to your ClassLink account, activating the integration will only take a few minutes once our support team gets the request. Preparing a Type to Learn account for the integration may take 1-2 business days (if necessary).
How do I request access to Type to Learn in ClassLink?
- Connecting to the Type to Learn App in ClassLink
- Adding App and Modifying Permissions (ClassLink Help Center)
How do my students log in to Type to Learn from ClassLink?
Your students will log into ClassLink using whichever method you have set up for them, this could be through Google or a ClassLink login.
After logging in they should be on the LaunchPad page where all your connected apps will appear. Students simply need to click the Type to Learn icon to be logged into Type to Learn. Once the student is logged in, they will need to click the “Launch Type to Learn” link to open the program.
How do I add students into our ClassLink account?
ClassLink connects directly with your student information system (SIS) and pulls all the data from that software. This means that as your SIS updates, so does ClassLink, and thus, all apps connected to ClassLink. There may be ways to manually add students to your ClassLink account. Check out the ClassLink Help Center for more information.
If I’m already using Type to Learn, can I start using ClassLink for Rostering?
Yes! But it’s very important that you first add your student’s email addresses to Type to Learn before we activate ClassLink and you start using it for rostering. Our Customer Success team will help make sure your account is ready before activating the integration on your account.
Can I use ClassLink for single-sign-on only and not rostering?
Yes! While the Type to Learn app supports both SSO and Rostering, we can activate only SSO if necessary. If Rostering is active, SSO will also be active.
If we start using ClassLink, can students still log in at www.typetolearn.com?
No, they cannot. Once you start using ClassLink, that will be the only method in which students and teachers can log in (Admins can still log in using the login form). This is done for security reasons, and it allows district admins to manage access to the different applications through ClassLink only. If you choose to stop using ClassLink, we can update your account with new usernames and passwords for logging in at www.typetolearn.com.
Who do I contact if I have a problem?
If a student is having trouble logging into ClassLink or there is a problem connecting the Type to Learn app to your district, please contact the ClassLink support team. If you are connected to Type to Learn and there is a problem logging in to the program, please contact our support team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
