Over the last year, we heard from several teachers who utilize Google Classroom. MYcaert.com has implemented a Google Single-Sign-On, SSO, option for students.
This is a secure authentication system that enables Google users to sign in with their Google account logins. Students will not have to remember their MYcaert.com logins and passwords. They will click the Google icon to log in.
When you add students to your account, you have an option to select Google Enable. Once you click "Yes" in that column, you will add the student's Google e-mail address. This can be their personal Gmail account, or their Google education account.
If students are already in your roster, you will select "Edit Students" underneath the "My Students" Tab. Click the student's name you wish to edit, and then you will have the option to enable the Google SSO.
Special Student Note:
When students login for the first time with this feature on a device they will have to click the Google G "Sign In" button. When returning to MYcaert.com, the browser will do a quick search to ensure they are logged in to their Google account.
The SSO will allow you to assign links to e-units and online assessments in Google Classroom. The students can click the links and be taken directly to those assignments. The SSO also removes inconvenient steps in assigning materials to students. Assessments and materials remain password protected, and you remain able to track student attainment via academic standards.
