## eMATH Is Now a ClassLink Partner!

eMATH is thrilled to now be a Certified ClassLink Partner, making eMATHinstruction even easier for teachers with ClassLink accounts to use! Scroll down for FAQs!

This partnership will support over 19 million students by combining eMATHinstruction with ClassLink’s widely adopted access, analytics, and identity management platform. It furthers the goals of eMATH to make teaching math a whole lot easier. It also helps ClassLink’s mission of empowering educators to improve learning through innovative systems, services, and tools like eMATH.

What is ClassLink and how does it work?
ClassLink is a service that your schools subscribe to make tech application access a bit easier and more streamlined.  eMATH being a ClassLink partner simply means that you can now access your eMATHinstruction account and memberships through the ClassLink portal if your school subscribes to ClassLink.  If your school does not subscribe to ClassLink there is no impact to how you interact with eMATHinstruction.

How does this impact current memberships?
There is no impact to your current eMATH memberships.  Memberships will continue as they always have.  If your school is a ClassLink school you can now access your eMATHinstruction account through your ClassLink Portal.  Of course you do not need to access eMATH though ClassLink but the option is there if you would like.

If your school subscribes to ClassLink you can now access your eMATH account and memberships in the same place as your other tech resources.  It just helps to keep everything in one place.

2. Find eMATHinstruction in the ClassLink Global App Library and add it to your school’s Local App Library. Here is a screenshot of what our app looks like:
• Once added to the local library be sure to use the Global App version and do not make a copy of the app.  If you do you will not see any future updates.
• Assign the eMATHinstruction app to the teachers you would like to access eMATH through their ClassLink portal.
• Once you have the eMATHinstruction icon on your ClassLink portal click into it and it will bring you to the eMATH website.  You will need to log into your eMATHinstruction account just as you normally would.  You only need to do this one time.  Each subsequent time you access eMATH through ClassLink you will automatically be logged in.

Does eMATH have Rostering with ClassLink?
eMATHinstruction does not currently do rostering in ClassLink.  There is no need for student rostering as eMATH does not collect student information or create student accounts.  We currently do not do teacher rostering but may in the future.

Still have questions?
