Single Sign-on Guide for Coordinators

Single sign-on (or SSO) is the feature that simplifies the process of viewing resources from all over the web through the Learning.com classroom. Learning.com can store the usernames and passwords for supported external websites linked in teacher-created web links and curriculum items from other content providers. When a student clicks any curriculum item that leads to the same external resource, their login information is entered automatically. SSO credentials can be entered in two ways -- by students when they open an item or by coordinators ahead of time using the User Import Tool.

Student Enters Credentials

  • When a student clicks the SSO curriculum item in their assignment list, they are asked to enter their username and password for the external website.
  • If the “Save my info” box is checked, students will not have to enter their credentials for any links to that website again.

Create a Spreadsheet

  • Columns have these labels: Username, SSO Username, SSO Password.
  • The first username column should list students’ Learning.com username. The other columns list the login credentials for the outside website.
  • Save the file in the comma separated value format, i.e., CSV (Comma Delimited).

Launch the User Import Tool

  • Choose the Single Sign-On (SSO) Credentials Import and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • See detailed instructions for the SSO Upload.
  • More Information on the User Import Tool can be found at the Learning.com Resources Page.
  • A list of SSO-compatible content providers can be found in the User Import Tool.
