A new service called “WebAccess” will help streamline the process for how students, faculty and staff log in to several of CU-Boulder’s Web-based systems. Very simply, WebAccess provides a standardized, secure way for users to log into selected campus systems that are available over the web and in the cloud.
WebAccess is being used for the campus’ Qualtrics online survey tool. The next system to use WebAccess will be Desire2Learn, the campus’ online learning environment.
How Does WebAccess Work?
When you visit a campus service that uses WebAccess, you will go to the Web address of the service. Next, you will be presented with the WebAccess log in screens for that service. To log in, you will simply use your CU login name and IdentiKey password that you are familiar with, so you have the ability to log in with standard credentials.
The first time you log in using WebAccess, you will be presented with a screen where you will be asked to confirm your login credentials and user information. Subsequently, you will not need to do so.
Your login information is securely maintained with WebAccess. The system provides users with information about their login information, so they are aware of and in control of the privacy of their information.
Users should close their browser completely when they are finished using any service using WebAccess. This is a best practice with Web- and cloud-based systems, to most fully protect system information.
