Why would you need Single Sign-On (SSO) ?

SSO for Education

Education providers such as schools, colleges, and universities are the foundation of learning, growth, and development for young generations across the globe. Most educational institutions and school campuses now have Internet access. Teachers now face the growing challenge of managing such a huge number of logins for so many students as a result of the rising use of online learning.

With the help of these Instant Logins, teachers and students can access the majority of the most used apps in today's classrooms with only a single sign-on or dashboard login. This service is exceptional since it links the sign-on panel with numerous online learning management systems, eliminating the requirement for each student to log in more than once.

Use Cases

Central IDP Login for Multiple Sites of a College/University

Central IDP Login for Multiple Sites of a College/University

Consider a University/College having two websites - 1 for academic resources and 1 for student profiles. In this case, if the student logins into any one of the sites he/she will be able to access both the sites seamlessly without the process of re-authentication.

Solution:

Our Joomla SAML SSO plugin allows Single Sign-On for a school/university having multiple Joomla sites (or multiple subsites within a single domain) with users existing in a single IDP.

Multiple IDP Login for Central College/University Site

In this case, consider the main university having multiple colleges each of which has its own Identity Provider for managing user identities. The University has a central site that contains all the University resources beneficial for the students of the different colleges associated with that University.

Solution:

This solution enables schools/colleges using different Identity Providers the ability to Single Sign-On into a central Joomla site using their respective IDPs. Here, Joomla Single Sign-On for Universities would help in authenticating users from multiple Identity Providers into the central Joomla University site by using a single set of credentials.

Federated Single Sign-On

Federated Single Sign-On

In this case University is linked to different applications/platforms with resources relevant not just to students but to teachers as well.

Solution:

What Federated Single Sign-On does is that it enables the users residing of Universities/Schools on the Joomla site to authenticate with their IDP to access the resources in these external applications/platforms. In easier words, it enables users to login into multiple applications on different domains.
