Copia and Clever Partner to Create Seamless Digital Classrooms
Combining Copia's Digital Learning Tools and Clever’s Seamless SIS Integration Platform Will Make Digital Learning a Reality

NEW YORK, NY NOVEMBER 13, 2013  –  Copia, a company that specializes in providing customized digital solutions to the education marketplace, and Clever, a SIS integration provider, have announced a partnership to deliver seamless digital solutions to schools around the country. 

Schools interested in using Copia's host of interactive e-reading, social media and assessment tools, can now do so under the umbrella of the seamless SIS integration that Clever has championed.  A school can securely sync their data systems to Copia – through Clever’s platform – and ensure that teachers and students will always have accounts that reflect updated course enrollments, a big step forward in optimizing how technology works in K-12 classrooms.

"This partnership is truly a watershed moment for Copia and the schools we partner with," said Ben Lowinger, EVP of Copia. "Copia’s suite of interactive digital tools, now enhanced by Clever’s integration, creates the ultimate digital classroom experience. Sometimes schools dream about digitizing their classrooms, but don’t fully understand the challenges in doing so. Copia, buttressed by Clever, has the ability to actualize this transformation. Once in place, the opportunities are truly endless and we’re excited about exploring them."

Supported by Clever, schools are now able to securely sync their student data with the Copia platform, ensuring ease of use and real-time student data for every teacher using Copia. Administrators can easily set up the sync, and having done so, they always maintain complete control over what data is shared with Copia.

"Clever’s simplicity and ease of use belies its incredibly innovative digital platform and its remarkable contribution to the educational-technology industry," explained Nathan Cayzer, Platform Services and Development Director at Copia. 

"Given Copia’s dramatic success in Australia’s K-12 schools, we were honored and pleased that the Copia team immediately realized the importance of offering SIS integration to US schools and understood how that would benefit the teacher and student experience," said Matt Pasternack, VP of Business Development at Clever. "Schools across the country are seeing products such as Copia that have the ability to truly revolutionize student learning.  We’re excited to make the deployment of Copia in those schools as seamless as possible."
