ClassLink Eliminates Complicated Portal at Casper College

The Challenge

Casper College amassed a large library of digital resources including web apps, online learning material, and a course management system. In order to provide single sign-on access to these resources, Casper relied on an outdated web portal that was cumbersome to use.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.

In 2012, 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

ClassLink solved the problems Casper had with their old portal. For the first time, students and faculty had a single interface for accessing school resources from any device. Single sign-on worked for almost every resource, including Google Apps. And thanks to ClassLink’s simple interface, even non-technical users quickly accepted it.

Casper College is now experimenting with giving users greater control over which apps appear in their ClassLink desktop.
