About single sign-on

Many school districts employ single sign-on solutions to manage access to online learning applications. Single sign-on (SSO) technology lets users enter a single username and password to access all of their learning programs from one centralized resource.

Which single sign-on providers are supported?

MySciLEARN supports ClassLink, a popular provider with thousands of apps.

Who can use single sign-on?

MySciLEARN supports SSO for students only; staff users are not supported at this time.

Which devices are supported?

Students can use SSO with any MySciLEARN supported device, as long as that device is also supported by their SSO provider.

Are iPad apps supported?

Since ClassLink provides SSO through a web browser, it works seamlessly with our HTML5-based components on iPad. Because of the way iPad manages their mobile apps, students will be prompted to log in again when using the mobile apps from the App Store® on iPad.

Does MySciLEARN support rostering?

MySciLEARN does not support rostering with single sign-on at this time.

How can I set up single sign-on for my students?

To set up single sign-on, just add your SSO provider ID to MySciLEARN, then follow the usual steps from your provider to make the MySciLEARN program available to the students at your district.

For steps see Set up single sign-on for your students.
