Digitalisation of education with UCS@school
UCS@school – the platform for central identity and authorisation management to satisfy all requirements for modern school IT.
UCS@school offers you central identity and access management for comfortable and safe administration of roles and authorisations of your users. The easy integration of national services and school software makes it possible to synchronise user data, thus eliminating duplication of administrative effort and increasing the quality of the database significantly. Every teacher and student is given a digital identity and can thereby access all IT services approved for the individual with a single sign-on. UCS@school thus offers you the possibility of centrally operating and providing heterogeneous and highly complex IT infrastructures in one place and administering them with little effort.
With UCS@school you protect user identities in two ways. On the one hand, you decide whether you wish to operate UCS@school from your own data centre or a service provider of your choice. The provision of services and data for schools is either done via the cloud or you provide them decentrally on school servers. On the other hand, connectors and standardised interfaces allow data protection-compliant access to user data on external services by using pseudonyms. This way, you retain full data sovereignty.
With UCS@school you can optimally meet the different needs of schools and students. The Univention App Centre enables you to quickly connect to various services and applications for your daily school needs, such as learning software, email and chat solutions, office programs, file sharing and mobile device management. Through standardised interfaces, you connect further IT services and digital learning management systems such as itslearning, bettermarks or WebWeaver to the central identity management of UCS@school. In this way, you build your own education cloud that is optimised for your school!
Expand your educational offerings for schools flexibly and according to demand through external services. With the UCS@school module ID Broker we offer you a uniform brokerage service for authentication of digital educational offerings from the cloud.
Homeschooling, self-study via digital media and the use of IT in the classroom have long been important components of pedagogical learning concepts. With UCS@school, you give teachers intuitive and easy-to-use software with which they can control computer rooms, computers and Internet access, distribute digital work materials, share screen content and use digital learning opportunities in the classroom. An online portal provides easy and central access to all services and applications, also from home, via single sign-on. Users only need to remember a password and can reset this thanks to a self-service function.
With the company Univention, we had a reliable partner at our side throughout the entire project, who not only had an already suitable product in their portfolio, but also adapted it excellently to our specific requirements and will continue to offer qualified third-level support for this in the future.
