Is It Me? SSO
With the increasing use of web-based computing (most Learning Platforms, E2BN resources, Education City, Purple Mash, Office 365, Google Apps, Google Classroom and others) we end up with having a different username and password for each service - nightmare! The solution to this problem is a simplified sign-on (SSO) service. With SSO, you sign-in via a web page on any device, at anytime, from anywhere. You then have access to all the web services you need without having to log-in again. Brilliant! E2BN’s SSO for schools is called ‘Is it Me?’
With this easy to use system, you sign-in once to ‘Is it Me?’, you can then choose either a Launchpad or a Flightdeck. The Launchpad is populated with icons which link directly to the resources you (or your students) need. The resource ‘recognises’ your credentials and allows you access without having to enter a new username and password. You can create your own Launchpads, for example for different year groups or for different subject areas.
The Flightdeck is similar but populated with ‘widgets’ that you’ve added such as your email, calendar and social media feeds. You can also share and access shared Launchpads and Flightdecks.
The result – faster access to all your resources so maximising learning and making lessons more productive!
- Supporting easy access to web resources and applications on all devices, including tablets
- Allowing the sharing of new resources with pupils at the press of a button
- Making it easy to logon to applications using the auto-logon feature
- Encouraging independent learning without the risk and distractions of open Internet
