LearningField’s new technology partner VitalSource has just extended Single Sign On (SSO) support to the Desktop and Mobile Bookshelf apps for Android, iPad, Mac and Windows.
The change means once you have opened any resource from LearningField via your LTI compliant LMS, the “Launch App” button will automatically open the resource in the Desktop or Mobile app from the same page, without logging in and out of different systems. This update brings the Desktop and Mobile apps in line with the SSO support already provided by Bookshelf Online for LTI compliant LMS’ such as Canvas, Schoology, Blackboard, D2L and Moodle.
“Using LearningField from a LMS now means that users don’t need to remember another password, which is great news for teachers and students” says Torsten Lachmann, Senior Business Analyst at LearningField.
“If the LMS integrates with the school’s Active Directory for example, teachers and students only need to remember one password to read etextbook content via LearningField across all the different readers.”
