Free Technology For Teachers: Use the Same ID for Zoho and Google

If you’re anything like me you probably use a couple of different cloud computing tools. Now, according to CNET, two of the best producers of cloud computing tools allow users to use the same ID on each program. Zoho is planning to integrate with Google sign-on. When the integration is complete and live, if you have a Google account and a Zoho account you should be able to use both services without the need to log-in to each service individually with unique ID’s for each service.

Applications and Implications for Education
This development is a reflection of the need for using Open ID services. As more and more web-based technologies are integrated into instruction it will become increasing difficult for students and teachers to keep track of the various account names and passwords that they use.
Web-based technologies that accept Open ID will become more popular as more web-based technologies are incorporated into the classroom. Getting students and teachers to sign up for Open ID is one step that technology integrators can take to prepare students and teachers for the future.
