Supporting you to deliver a personalized remote learning experience

With the sudden reliance on Learning Management Systems (LMS) to provide instruction, many educators across the globe are now entering a new era for teaching - in some cases overnight. Take one look on social media and you’ll see an influx of questions and comments on how to best operate in this new online world we’re now all living in. The great news is, here at Texthelp, we have lots of  special LMS integrations to allow for a more personalized experience that helps make remote learning a little closer to traditional instruction. 
 


Most LMSs already include many of the things you need to successfully teach from anywhere in the world. And many companies, like Texthelp, offer special LMS integrations to allow for a more personalized experience that helps make remote learning a little closer to traditional instruction. 

Below I’ve listed a few of the integrations that we offer LMS users. And where appropriate, I’ve also listed some of the new features that we’re prioritizing to help educators better navigate through these uncharted waters. 

EquatIO

Canvas Integration
Google Classroom Integration
Google Forms Integration
Brightspace/D2L and Schoology integration

Fluency Tutor

Google Classroom Integration

Read&Write for Google Chrome

Read&Write has always provided powerful supports for reading on the web, and now those tools are more important than ever when it comes to reading inside your LMS. Features like Hover Speech and the Play button can be used to read most content on LMSs, as shown below:

In addition, a recent update to Read&Write now provides improved support for using Prediction and Talk&Type inside many LMSs. With these tools, students can get the writing supports they need when completing assignments or participating in discussion threads. And in the coming weeks, we’ll be working on expanding this support to include even more LMSs.

Read&Write’s PDF Reader

The PDF Reader makes it easy for teachers to create assignments, and for students to complete and submit them. In particular, the PDF Reader offers seamless integration with Google Classroom and now also with Schoology! If you’re using either of those platforms, you can easily create an assignment out of a PDF, assign to your students, and then review the work they’ve completed using the PDF Reader’s annotations, drawing tools, highlights and more.

WriQ

Google Classroom Integration:
Open Docs directly from Classroom Environment - WriQ works directly in the Google Classroom environment.  When students return work in Classroom, WriQ will be active when you open the Doc.  It’s that easy!

Populate Classroom Class Lists in Dashboard - After registering with WriQ, connect your Google Classrooms to the Dashboard by clicking anywhere in the “Import Classrooms” box.  Classes and ists will quickly and automatically load on the page, and you’re all set!

You can also use the PDF Reader within the Canvas LMS (via Google Assignments LTI). Kathleen Coburn of TextHelp shared this video tutorial recently: https://youtu.be/eYIrGBOd1nI

What integrations do you have with Blackboard?

Deena Kimmel 11/9/2020 1:31:13 PM
Hi Casey - At the moment, we don't have any integrations with Blackboard. But, I'll pass your request along to our developers. Thanks!

The highlighting feature is not transferring after the student submits in Schoology assignments. This worked last week.

Deena Kimmel 10/30/2020 1:01:09 PM
Hi Shannon - Sorry to hear that. Can you please email support@texthelp.com? They'll be able to take a look to see what might be going on. Thanks!

Read&Write - Integration with Brightspace - We have recently purchased an institution-wide license for Read&Write and I wanted to know if this can be integrated into our LMS for ease of use and access?

Deena Kimmel 10/6/2020 4:44:43 PM
Hi Michael - Yes, you can use Read&Write within Brightspace!

ANDREW CHLUP 7/17/2020 9:57:19 PM
Are you looking into Canvas LTI option for PDF reviewer?

Deena Kimmel 7/23/2020 6:55:00 PM
Hi Andrew - Yes, it is something we are considering, but at the moment, it is more of a long-term improvement. We've passed along your interest to the Product Management. Thanks!
