We’re happy to announce that Google Apps for Education (GAFE) single-sign-on (SSO) is now available for NoodleTools through our Google Marketplace NoodleTools App. Google Apps SSO allows users to log into NoodleTools, without the need for any username/password. And just as importantly, the integration eliminates the administrative headaches around helping students with lost passwords.
Who can use it?
This functionality is available to subscribing schools, districts and colleges that use Google Apps for Education (GAFE) across all students. Note that individual researchers, teacher licenses, free trial accounts and NHD-only accounts are not eligible for this feature.
How do I set it up?
This document outlines the steps required to set up Google Apps SSO for your school/college:
Be sure you have read and understand the full document before submitting your request. For example, keep in mind that once we activate Google Apps SSO authentication, all users will log in that way. You will want to communicate this change to your users; we can enable SSO on a date/time of your choosing, to help with this transition.
When can we start?
Step 1 of the instructions contains a form to request access, once you are sure you’d like to switch to this authentication option. You will receive an email from us within a few days of that request, with instructions for how to proceed.
