Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Chicago,IL - Feb 28, 2018 - Campus Consortium, the largest global education association of schools, colleges and universities, awards Logos Evangelical Seminary (Logos) a $24,000 Grant to help fulfil a Single Sign-On & Identity solution for students and faculty. Located in El Monte, California, Logos was founded in 1989 and is the first fully accredited Asian American seminary by both the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) and the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).
A respite for students not having to remember numerous logins and passwords, the grant covers 100% of the licensing costs associated with implementing a single sign-on and identity solution.
“Logos currently is planning and developing 100% online degree programs in order to reach and benefit more prospective Chinese students across the globe. However, in order to access student emails, academic information, or course materials from different platforms, our students are required to use different credentials to access the desired information from different platforms. And they always have trouble remembering their credentials and which credential for what platform. We are pleased to receive this grant from Campus Consortium. Through the QuickLaunch® SSO and identity platform, I believe it will not only solve the troubles we have been suffering from for years but also will help streamline and improve our operational effectiveness as well as service quality,” said Rev. Kuo-Liang Lin, President at the Logos Evangelical Seminary.
Logos Evangelical Seminary (Logos) will use the grant to acquire the QuickLaunch® software, that will enable them with single sign-on to enterprise applications including O365®, Populi®, EBSCO® and ProQuest®.
“We at Campus Consortium are glad to award this Grant to Logos. We are sure by implementing single sign-on, the Quicklaunch platform will make student and faculty experience better, along with tightening security parameters”, states Anjli Jain, Chairman of the Campus Consortium.
