Pearson offers federated authentication into a LearningStudio campus or directly into a course. We have implemented a PingFederate enterprise identity bridge to allow federated single sign-on against our customer’s user directory using SAML 2.0 The features and functionality offered through this solution are as follows:
- Allows for federations with most leading Identity Assertion Providers including Shibboleth and ADFS
- Improved security eliminates to need to keep LearningStudio password in sync with your Identify Management solution
- Eliminates the need for students to have multiple credentials
Our implementation uses a simple Service Provider initiated SSO that provides you a URL to add to any of your existing system to launch users directly into the LearningStudio platform seamlessly.
Note: Our SAML 2.0 implementation is not compatible with the new My Labs Plus(MLP) portal. If you are a MLP customer and are unsure of what portal you are using, please contact your SCO for details.
