OpenClass and IAM training at NCCAT in Cullowhee

The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching was happy to host educators from several school districts at the OpenClass and IAM training in Cullowhee this week. We appreciate educators from ArtSpace Charter School, Buncombe County,Charlotte Choice Charter School, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Clay County Schools, Jackson County Schools, and Madison County Schools for joining us.

OpenClass is a platform for students and teachers that allows 24-hour access to assignments, chat boards, collaborative spaces, and more. In the OpenClass campus, students can see and complete coursework, communicate about assignments, and complete homework and assessments. This OpenClass training is a train-the-trainer intensive designed for district level IIS/OpenClass training teams, Instructional Technology Facilitators, Curriculum Specialists, Lead Classroom Teachers, and other teachers and central office staff who will be training and supporting OpenClass as a district level learning management platform. (OpenClass is available to all districts as a part of the additional opt-in services related to the HomeBase portal).

The IAM Service is based on the principle that strong identity management is a foundational component for the accelerating IT shift toward cloud technologies. As more services move to the cloud, a centralized and standard way to manage accounts, roles, and permissions for these technologies is required for the successful deployment and ongoing management. The goal of the IAM Service is for every student, teacher, staff member, parent or guardian, and school community member to have a single, unique username and password to access cloud-based learning resources in North Carolina.

This program was conducted by the NCEdCloud/DPI team and hosted by NCCAT.
