A Single Log-in to Rule Them All

posted by Staff Writer

On Monday, Feb. 27, life as we know it will change forever.

frustrated guyOk. Excuse the hyperbole. But signing into your UALR accounts is, in fact, changing and for the better.

Haven’t you been frustrated trying to remember too many account passwords? Did you ever shake your fists at your computer and shout to the heavens, “Why can’t I log into my email and Blackboard with just one username/password?!?”

IT Services has been working to remedy this first-world problem, and we’re excited to launch myUALR, a single sign-on solution.

Using myUALR, you’ll be able to access your UALR email account, Blackboard, and BOSS — all using your NetID. Pretty simple, right? Check out this soothing demo from our nifty IT folks:

IT Services is offering public demonstrations and Q&A sessions from 3 to 5 today in Dickinson Auditorium. Feel free to drop in and check it out. If you run into problems, contact the UALR IT Services Assistance Center at 501.916.3011 or send an e-mail to itservices-help@ualr.edu.

    Gotta love that title.

  3. That’s what most students really need these days, one user log.in and they can all access their applications. Students hardly remember all there usernames and passwords because they’ve signed up for too many applications. Great idea.
