Studentnet welcomes all of our client schools to the new 2016 academic year
with new features and new services being supported. Our themes for 2016 are
going to be ...
- Firstly to give you more control over managing your community identities
through improvements to your Cloudwork dashboard - this has already started
with the new reporting capabilities that we introduced late in 2015, and
- Secondly, to improve our communications with our entire community of
schools. Again this has already started with the establishment of a new blog
facility at blog.studentnet.net.
Just as an aside did you know that there are now over 78,000 active
being supported by Cloudwork. According to ABS figures, this
represents over 9%
of all staff and students in Australian independent
Edumate Single Sign On - it's here!
We are very excited to report that Hobsons have now released support for SSO in
Edumate's new 5.1 update version released in January. The Cloudwork technical
team have been beta testing this new capability with the Hobsons' development
team and a volunteer initial target school. There is still some work to do in
the areas of generation of the meta data and in implementing Single Log Out. We
are pleased to report that we are expecting great progress to be made in
completing that work so stay tuned.
To enable Edumate SSO, simply open your Cloudwork dashboard and navigate
through: Cloudwork dashboard > Services > Single Sign On > Request New
Services > Other Services/Edumate
For now this will initiate a manual
process. However, down the track, we are optimistic that we will be able to
fully automate this process, so giving school IT administrators complete
control through the dashboard.
Password Reset new feature
The password reset function now has a new capability: Users that are already
signed in through Cloudwork can now change their password after they have
signed in. As they have already passed the authentication test this form of
password reset does not require a code to be generated and sent out to the user
via either SMS or email.
Reduce your chargeable accounts - mark your alumni
Studentnet is keen that your school maximises the value received from its
Cloudwork subscription. Of course we can do that by constantly improving the
product with new features and by making it more usable with more services. But
as well you can help out by reducing the cost of your subscription by marking
graduating students from year 2015 as 2016's alumni, so converting term to
We've used our new blog
to detail exactly how you can convert those graduating
students to your school's alumni.
Let us know if you have any questions.
