Wikispaces integration with Google Apps, Blackboard, and more

This week, we released two new authentication options for Wikispaces Private Label: Google Apps, and Basic LTI that can be used with Blackboard, Sakai, and other LMSs.

Large organizations like schools, districts, and universities need great technology for their users deployed in a way that users are comfortable enough to actually use. Our authentication options let your users sign into your Private Label site with the usernames and passwords they’re already using for other programs no matter what internal systems you use. And, with fewer usernames to confuse and passwords to remember, it’s much easier for users to get more out of the services you offer.

Here’s where to find these integration options:

  1. Make sure you’re logged in as a site administrator.
  2. Go to Site Administration.
  3. Go to the Settings tab.
  4. Click on Authentication.
  5. Select the type of integration you want to add from the authentication source list.
  6. Hit the Add button.
  7. Follow the instructions on the page to add your new authentication source. (Our help wiki has more detailed instructions for the Basic LTI and Google Apps integrations.)

Integrated systems make it easier for your students, faculty, and staff to spend more time on projects and work, and less time fighting with software. That’s why we support so many different authentication options. And we know not everyone your faculty and students want to collaborate with have a Blackboard or internal account. That’s why we make it easy for you to set up multiple authentication sources for your Private Label site.
