ITS TIP of the Month:

Clever

Do you keep seeing this pop up every time your students open up a chromebook?


  • Once students log in to CLEVER, they will have access to online learning applications they use every day in a single location. This single sign on (SSO) platform is meant to make your life easier!
  • When the white authentication box appears, students will enter their lunch number and normal password.
  • Students then can click on any apps on the main page and be directed to program without having to log in multiple times.
  • There is application gallery available with more than 200 applications that support Clever. Email the ITS team if you would like to check availability of an app your students use every day!
  • Apps already available: AR Star testing, Typing Club, Code.org, Khan Academy, & more
