Username / Password
Query String URL (SSO)
Currently available for our Streaming Video Platform only, you can now connect your Learning Management System to your Infobase products. LTI is a framework developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium to provide a standard for secure, real-time communication between learning tools and third-party learning applications. It allows content providers like Infobase Learning to create a "plug in" for top Learning Management Systems, making their LMS a one-stop solution for educators to create course assignments that contain external media assets.
Currently available for our Streaming Video Platform only, you can now connect your LDAP user-base to your Infobase products. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an open, vendor-neutral, industry application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over an Internet Protocol (IP) network. A common use of LDAP is to provide a central place to store usernames and passwords. This allows many different applications and services to connect to the LDAP server to validate users.
Currently available as a free, included service for our Streaming Video Platform and select Online Databases. Google Sign-In can now be turned on to allow users to access these Infobase products with their Google credentials. Google Sign-In provides an easy way for students and faculty at Google Apps for Education (GAFE) schools to link their Google accounts with the accounts for the products.
If you have any questions or would like more detailed information about configuring any of the authentication methods listed above, please contact our Infobase Technical Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1-800-322-8755.
