EDUCAUSE Login Information for UNCG Students, Faculty, and Staff

Background

This document explains how to use your UNCG account to login to the EDUCAUSE website where you can create and edit your EDUCAUSE profile, and access EDUCAUSE resources such as webinars and publications related to the use of technology in higher education. UNCG accounts are able to login to EDUCAUSE because UNCG participates in the InCommon Federation which facilitates sharing of resources across organizations using your home institution's (UNCG's) user name and password (i.e., "single sign-on")

From the EDUCAUSE WEBSITE (see: EDUCAUSE Mission and Organization):
"EDUCAUSE is a nonprofit association whose mission is to advance higher education through the use of information technology."

Note: Not all resources on the EDUCAUSE website require a login for access. You need to follow these instructions only to access those resources or register for events that require a login, and to manage your EDUCAUSE profile and preferences.
