Clever, Inc.

Matt Pasternack

    Student mobility in schools presents a challenge for online learning, since vendors are unable to keep up with rapidly changing student roster data. Students wait days to get accounts. Teachers think that online learning products "don't work." Districts spend months implementing methods to exchange enrollment data with their vendors. Clever helps 3,000 schools and districts sync student accounts between their student information systems and their online learning providers. Set-up takes less than five minutes and is non-technical. Clever uses bank-level security and is Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant. Best of all, districts are not charged directly for this service.
