Seamless SSO access
Access any web-based resource. On any internet-enabled device. Anytime. Anywhere. Any reason not to?
With the Global Grid for Learning, educators and students in any given classroom, school, district, region or country now have a single secure point of access to any web-based resource – via web browser or mobile app – on any personal or institution-owned internet-enabled device whether they're at school, home or somewhere in-between.
SSO PLATFORM CORE COMPONENTS
Educators and students get access to all their OERs and web-based resources in one easy-to-organize place which they can customize further with bookmarks and folders. Always accessible via our portal or mobile app or as a widget inside an institution’s portal or learning platform.
Streamline new subscription trials and setup by allowing groups of educators and students to test drive new enterprise-wide cloud-based apps and services with SSO built-in. Easily purchase via credit card, preloaded “wallet,” crowd-funding campaign or an authorized reseller. Quickly provision services centrally for any relevant group of users.
Via our easy-to-use console, administrators can preconfigure, distribute, monitor and manage web-based resources for users. Migrate data in bulk, create multiple groups and define roles for users to provision services to. Securely automate identity data lifecycle management, improving web security and simplifying overall system administration.
Secure extraction of enterprise data from multiple systems (such as an SIS) to share it across other applications for storage or analysis. Keep track of data being ingested and conduct validation, statistical analysis and backup of data.
