A few of our LMS integration partners are listed on this page. If you don’t see your LMS provider, contact us for more info—we probably integrate with them.
Why do I need SoftChalk if I already have an LMS?
Learning Management Systems are designed to help educators manage student coursework, assignments and evaluations. Yet they offer very limited content authoring features. Content authoring is where SoftChalk Cloud shines and what makes it the perfect companion product for your LMS. With SoftChalk, you can create media-rich, interactive, awesome content for all your LMS courses.
How does SoftChalk integrate with my LMS?
We understand that the content you create has to work seamlessly with your learning management system. And sometimes it needs to work simultaneously with more than one LMS.
So how does that work? It’s easy. Create a lesson in SoftChalk Cloud. Put the lesson link into as many courses in your LMS as you wish (you can even link a lesson into multiple courses in multiple LMSs simultaneously). That’s it.
Updating content is also quick and easy. Simply modify your content in SoftChalk Cloud and every course in every LMS that uses that lesson is updated with one click!
Do students need a SoftChalk account to access my content?
No—students simply login to their LMS course and click your SoftChalk lesson links to view your content. To the student, your content looks like it is part of the native LMS course. The students never leave the native course environment.
What if I change Learning Management Systems?
No problem! No need to export and import or convert your content. Simply link your SoftChalk Cloud content into your new LMS—your lessons can be linked into both your old and your new LMS at the same time!
Can I track student scores into my LMS gradebook?
Absolutely! SoftChalk Cloud allows you to track detailed student score results for your SoftChalk lessons and in many cases, student grades can be sent directly into your LMS gradebook.
Does SoftChalk use LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability)?
LTI is an interoperability standard developed by the education community, in cooperation with IMS Global. SoftChalk uses the LTI standards and api to integrate seamlessly with many Learning Management Systems. Typically, the setup takes less than 15 minutes.
In addition, SoftChalk also supports SCORM and Common Cartridge interoperability standards.
