Abstract

As the Web and associated security grows in complexity it is becoming increasingly difficult to ensure easy access for students, staff, and faculty. This problem is compounded as new and disparate systems are added to online environments. User-friendliness demands a single username and passcode, but this can mean two different things – a single point of entry and authentication for all systems, or a single username/passcode combination that must be entered by the user in each system. Each scheme has its own problems. This presentation will cover general rules, current technologies, and benefits and barriers to various alternatives. It will include examples from two distance education institutions.
