Tackling Digital Access at Casper College:
A Transformative Experience

The Challenge

Casper College amassed a large library of digital resources including web apps, online learning material, and a course management system. To provide single sign-on access to these resources, the college relied on an outdated web portal that was cumbersome to use. Many applications, most notably Google Apps, were not compatible with the portal’s SSO capability, and required manual sign-on.

The college resolved to find a better way of delivering their digital library. The new solution would need to support SSO for a wider variety of applications and require little training to use.

Choosing ClassLink

After considering several alternatives, Casper College chose ClassLink to deliver their digital library. The features that made ClassLink attractive were its intuitive interface, nearly unlimited single sign-ons, and low cost. “The price was approximately one third the cost of other solutions we reviewed,” said Kent Brooks, Director of IT for Casper College.

The Outcome

Casper’s community of students, faculty, and staff were quick to adapt to ClassLink because the interface is so clean and simple. The college also leverages My Files to provide instant access to school network files from any device and location.

Students and faculty appreciate a single interface for accessing 225+ cloud-based resources including Google Apps, Moodle, and WebAdvisor.  With freedom to customize ClassLink for their unique college community, Casper enabled one click access to FAFSA pages and other engagement and retention programs.
