  1. Bud — yes! Where I wor, we’re down to one login to remember for everything through Google authentication and Clever. If there’s a certain IT department that needs any technical assistance to make this happen, we’re happy to help.

    1. Sadly, there are many, many IT departments that need assistance on thinking about and implementing this idea. AND truly plenty of curriculum departments who need to pause before they add “one more resource” with the publisher or vendor’s generic login.

  2. You’ve pretty much described what Clever has been doing for schools; providing single sign-on for a host of websites and apps. It can be a bit clumsy, but gives students a single portal and login.

    Also, it’s important to talk to the person in charge. Our former IT Director always got a earful of this from me; we worked hard to try and make as much of our systems integrate with our LDAP/Google Accounts….but there are still so many vendors that don’t play nice like this 🙁
