SSO is all grown up.


Single sign-on is all grown up.
(And did we mention it's free?)

Technology enables so much. Except when it doesn’t. Providing access to umpteen applications, devices and operating systems can be overwhelming at best and disruptive at worst. The Global Grid for Learning changes that.

SSO is all grown up.


Single sign-on is all grown up.
(And did we mention it's free?)

Technology enables so much. Except when it doesn’t. Providing access to umpteen applications, devices and operating systems can be overwhelming at best and disruptive at worst. The Global Grid for Learning changes that.

So Much More (Than) SSO

Access any web-based resource. On any internet-enabled device. Anytime. Anywhere. Any reason not to?

The new Global Grid for Learning is an integrated and highly customizable approach to single sign-on (SSO) for schools and colleges that creates seamless teaching and learning experiences that save time, money (and headaches).

With the Global Grid for Learning, educators and students in any given classroom, school, district, region or country now have a single 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.

We Designed Our SSO Platform for Any Device So You Can Stay Focused on What Matters

Android • Windows • iOS • Desktop • Laptop • Smartphone • Tablet

Gain More Time for Teaching and Learning

No longer do students and teachers need to remember 25+ passwords and waste at least 5 minutes per lesson recovering lost passwords and accessing web services.

Global SSO Expertise with Educators and Students

Powered by SSO pioneer EduTone and their decade of hands-on SSO and identity management work supporting schools and colleges around around the world.

The Most SSO Services Available for Education

300+ SSO "Connectors" enable SSO to existing web-based subscriptions and the Marketplace makes free trials and instant setup of new services for institutions easier than ever.

Core Components of Our Award-Winning SSO Platform

Passport

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.

Marketplace

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.

Gateway

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.

DataZone

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.

Some of the 2,000,000+ Assets in Our Digital Library Come From

We’ve implemented EduTone's solutions in two different school settings – one in North Chicago and one on the Pine Ridge Reservation – where students live in communities fraught with poverty and in schools that operate with funding from donations. And we were able to cut costs and upgrade our technology to be top of the line. The kids are the ones who benefit and I’m grateful for the efficiencies the system has provided. It’s a new level of technical competence that school leadership never imagined.
