New Sign In Methods Available

Now signing into ClassLink has become much easier! Choose between using QuickCard or Facial Recognition.

QuickCard

QuickCard is an innovative system that is available for everyone. This method simplifies logins and gets each and every student organized and ready to learn!

In order to display the "Sign in with QuickCard" button on the login page, you must enable it in the ClassLink Management Console (CMC).

CMC -> Settings -> Login Page -> Edit (blue button under Action) -> under Social Links, you can manage the links you wish to display for your users.

Next, enable the desired login methods for your login page by going to the ClassLink Management Console > Single Sign-On > Sign in With. Simply turn on the QuickCard and/or Face toggle.

Enable these options in the "Sign in With" section of Settings in the ClassLink Management Console. Then, click the blue gear icon to activate it for your desired groups. Both sign in methods will use a camera to either scan a QuickCard badge or users face.

QuickCard Management

Administrators have the ability to Generate QuickCard, Export Data and Print QuickCards for groups in bulk!

  • Generate QuickCard - Creates a QR code for all the users so all they have to do is print!
  • Export Data - Transfers the data onto an excel sheet that includes: UserID, Username, Email, Display Name and Code.

Facial Recognition

Facial Recognition is a form of biometric identification that scans your face to instantly login a user hassle free. It is a hands-free method that uses consistent algorithms to detect each facial structure and compares it to the images stored in the database.

This fast and easy method lets you sign in by simply looking into a webcam to scan your face. No hands or memorizing! But before you get started, you would need to enable it and register and verify your facial structure.

In order to display the "Sign in with Face" button on the login page, you must enable it in the ClassLink Management Console (CMC).

CMC -> Settings -> Login Page -> Edit (blue button under Action) -> under Social Links, you can manage whichever links you desire to display for the users.

Description of functionality:

Step 1 - Register: Registers your facial algorithms to detect each facial structure.
Step 2 - Verify: Verifies the facial structure and compares it to the images stored in the database.

ATTENTION!

We encourage users to verify until you reach over 95% score to ensure that you're able to login hassle free.

Once you are done verifying, you're all ready to login!

All Done!

Now you can sign in without memorizing and hands-free!
