Announcing Single Sign On for UA Google Apps and UA Blackboard Learn

We are excited to announce that we are improving the way UA users can access core technology services. Starting May 7th, the Single Sign On option used for other services, like UA Online, will be coming to UA Google Apps and UA Blackboard Learn.

What is Single Sign On (SSO?)

Single Sign On is a single, centralized user authentication service, in which UA users can use one browser login session to access any tools, applications, or services that use the same SSO.

What does SSO mean for me?

Users who choose to login to UA services using the SSO option can expect a seamless transition to and from services that also use UA SSO. This currently includes services like UA Online, and soon UA Google Apps and UA Blackboard Learn will also be available with SSO.

For users who will be starting new active sessions with these services, you may notice additional options on your login page. Below is an example of how the UA Blackboard Learn login page may look once SSO becomes available.
