Bay District Schools is always advance when it comes to providing both students and teachers or staff with the technology for learning. This one has a thing known as BDS Launchpad. Do you want is BDs Launchpad? If you are not familiar with it, keep reading the post until the end.
BDS Launchpad is described as a Single Sign-On or SSO that is effective to eliminate the time to log in so that the students and the teachers can use more time to learn instead. If you still do not get it, basically, it is the place where a few things can be included, including some apps such as ABC Mouse, AR, Achieve3000, Brainpop, Canvas, CommonLit, Dreambox, Great Minds/Eureka Math, Fist in Math, FloridaStudents.org, FOCUS, Google Meet (Video Conferencing), ICivics, Imagine Learning, Khan Academy, McGraw Hill/ConnectED (Music, Social Studies), Pearson Elevate Science, ReadWorks, SORA (formerly Overdrive), Britannica, SmartyAnts, Study Island, ZEARN, and some other ones. If the common way requires you to log in to these apps one by one, with BDS Launchpad, you can log in once to all of them and you do not have to do it the next time you access it as you will automatically be allowed to get access. However, there is an exception when you set another log in on these apps. In this case, you will need to log in again. It is really easy to differentiate when you will be logged in automatically and when you have to log in again. There is a key icon on the top of a certain icon that indicates you do not have no log in again and you will be able to access it automatically.
For those the students and the teachers of Bay District Schools, there are a few methods that you can try to log in to BDs Launchpad by ClassLink. For those who use PC, here is step by step to follow:
- The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you are logging into the custom ClassLink login page of your school organization. For anyone who are not sure of the ClassLink Login Page of your school organization, you can check the webpage of your school to find a link to your login page. In case your school specific login page is not linked to the official website of the school, all that should be done is to go to https://launchpad.classlink.com. searching for the login page of your school is easy, which is by entering the name of the school in the search bar. then, click Use My Location and allow the browser access to the location data. In the end, the closest schools to the place where you live will be shown.
