Symplified® today announced Edulabs Global Learning Solutions Company, Ltd. has chosen its single sign-on (SSO) technology to connect students to cloud-based educational materials. Edulabs, a 21st Century e-learning solutions provider, delivers high-quality e-learning modules and interactive digital content through tablet computers and smartphone devices. The company needed a solution that would simply and securely enable tens of thousands of students to access hundreds of digital content modules and apps with just one username and password.
Edulabs plans to launch an upgrade to its popular BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) mobile learning program targeted for K-12 and higher education students, called EYOD® (Earn Your Own Device®). Leveraging Symplified’s Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) technology, Edulabs will be able to seamlessly integrate mobile device management, content and application management, and user management into one secure and effective turnkey, user-friendly solution.
“Our students span a wide range of ages, languages, cultures and learning styles. We needed a solution that would help us maximize their usage of our educational materials to best prepare them for the 21st century without confusion or complication, while enabling us to secure access to our proprietary digital content and apps. We chose Symplified because its SSO technology is effortless for our students to use via mobile devices or on premises, and it integrated into our infrastructure with virtually no effort,” said Craig Hovendove, chief visionary officer and president, Edulabs.
Edulabs plans to initially connect approximately 30,000 students in Thailand to its educational applications via Symplified within this quarter, with plans for future expansion in nine additional countries in Southeast Asia and North America. Edulabs is able to customize Symplified’s portal with its own branding right out of the box, so that students across all regions can be confident in accessing the engaging and enriching educational materials for which the company is known.
“Edulabs is a tremendous example of an organization harnessing the power of technology to educate students economically and efficiently, on a global scale,” said Shayne Higdon, president and CEO of Symplified. “We are very pleased Edulabs has chosen Symplified as its SSO partner of choice. Our IDaaS technology will help Edulabs increase mobile access to essential educational materials for its students, while helping IT easily manage user provisioning, authentication, authorization and compliance.”
