GoSignMeUp Now Allows Google Analytics

GoSignMeUp Now Allows Google Analytics

Now you can set up your GoSignMeUp to track ‘conversions’ using a new programming feature.  This has been impossible in the past due to security issues, because every user has a unique session variable in the page URL.  Google Analytics still tracks these activities, but because every session is unique, its virtually impossible to set a page to trigger a ‘goal’ in Google Analytics.  Now GoSignMeUp triggers a hidden static URL every time a student completes the registration process.  This allows administrators to set the tracking page as a ‘goal’, and very simply track conversions!  This was the missing link to close the conversion loop and track the cycle – now you can easily compare your web traffic vs. registrations – all within Google Analytics!

GoSignMeUp Now Allows Google Analytics to Track Conversions!

For more information on how to this works, check out the GoSignMeUp help guide on the topic.

CAS Integration with GoSignMeUp for SSO

CAS Integration with GoSignMeUp for SSO

GoSignMeUp has now integrated with CAS for identity management and authentication and authorization. With CAS integration you can take advantage of  ‘single sign-on’ (SSO).  SSO allows your users to sign in to GoSignMeUp and other different organizations or institutions using just one ‘identity’.   CAS  integration allows for cross-domain single sign-on and removes the need for content providers to maintain user names and passwords.

CAS is a widely used identity solution, connecting users to applications both within and between organizations.  A user authenticates with his or her organizational credentials, and the organization (or identity provider) passes the minimal identity information necessary to the service provider to enable an authorization decision. CAS also provides extended privacy functionality allowing a user and their home site to control the attributes released to each application.  GoSignMeUp now benefits from these features thru CAS integration.

GoSignMeUp online class registration and management software saves training organizations time and money – and makes the user experience easier and more secure using CAS integration.  CAS Integration with GoSignMeUp for SSO!

GoSignMeUp also supports other SSO options thru an LMS (such as Blackboard Learn, Haiku,  or Canvas)  Google SSO or Shibboleth.

 

Contact GoSignMeUp for pricing information or questions about our registration software and CAS integration.

Bookend Model


Bookend Model

Sometimes complex concepts are best summarized by simple illustrations. For example, when it comes to visualizing how GoSignMeUp and Learning Management Systems help facilitate common core professional development, the concept can be overwhelming!  Instead of the detailed diagram, think of the Bookend Model- the books are the content and the bookends that hold everything together are GoSignMeUp!  Our registration software not only facilitates sign-up and access to an on line Learning Management System (such as  Canvas), but also helps manage and analyze the data involved to continually improve the process.  The “Bookend” illustration above really helps summarize;

  • Powerful teaching tools to provide online learning for professional development.

Created for K-12 environments, the combination of GoSignMeUp registration software and Blackboard Learn is ideal to streamline the registration and content-delivery process.  We can help you use your Race to the Top funding or Federal Common Core Money to create a turn-key solution to meet the common core state standards initiative thru professional development.
