Chicago, IL (PRWEB) - Britannica® Digital Learning announced today that its popular K-12 classroom products LaunchPacks™: Science and LaunchPacks: Social Studies are now available via the widely used Clever single sign-on solution.

This means that at schools using Clever in the United States, students and teachers can access the Britannica platforms directly whenever they’re logged into Clever. No separate log-in is necessary. Since students and staff at these schools usually carry out classroom work and home assignments within the Clever online learning-management system, now, once there, they will be able to go to the Britannica LaunchPacks sites more easily than ever.

Designed for classroom use and to make lesson planning more efficient, LaunchPacks are aligned with the curriculums of all fifty states. The online science and social studies sites have drawn customer praise for their relevance and trustworthiness and won numerous adoptions around the country.

Both the science and social studies versions include approximately 2,000 current, trustworthy and highly relevant content sets, from magnets to medical imaging, American folk heroes to World War II and many more, offering a full range of articles, images, videos and primary sources presented in an engaging interface and optimized for any size device. Teachers spend less time searching for resources by having what they need in one place.

“LaunchPacks provide a go-to vehicle for teachers to access a plethora of relevant and reliable content, and now, with access through Clever, they and their students can use that content more easily and seamlessly,” said Matthew Krise, senior vice president of sales for Britannica Digital Learning.
