New login screen
The new login screen forms is fundamental our current developments which will allow Schoolshape to run on tablets and smartphones.
The aim is to provide
- a faster, seamless login process, whilst retaining full security for teachers and students
- an technologically up-to-date interface, eventually allowing access from any computer or hand-held device.
- a future-proof system for allowing secure, structured interaction between language laboratory/exchange partners worldwide.
Schoolshape Login Screen
You can still log in with your school name, your name and password. This works as before, except faster!
If your email has been entered into the Schoolshape system, you can now use it to log in. To add your email address to your account, click Admin->My Settings ->‘Login Accounts
Social Network Login
Students and teachers can now log in using their Google Apps For Education, Google Plus, Twitter or Facebook accounts. The advantage to this is that users do not need to remember their Schoolshape password. If your school network disallows external social networking, this login method will not function. To link a social network account, click 'Admin'->'My Settings'->‘Login Accounts’.
Those running a custom language lab will still be using the old login screen by default, but can access the new one at <your domain>/authenticate.
The 12% of you using Internet Explorer versions 8 and 9 will also still see the old login screen, but we encourage you to upgrade to Internet Explorer 10 or 11 as soon as you can, both for your own security and because we will be dropping support for these old browsers in the new year.
Please let us know if you would like to have additional methods of logging in, for example using your Moodle or Edmodo accounts.
