Login Screen changes to external Service Providers (Team Dynamix, Scholars Portal, Lynda.com) coming soon

The University of Windsor’s login page for a few applications provided by external companies will be changing over the course of the next few days.  This notice is being provided to announce that this is an expected change and to allay potential security concerns of the new site being fraudulent.  Because these sites provide access through a central authentication system (Shibboleth), and are accessed through the help of the Canadian Access Federation amongst others, exactly when the login screens will change is not known, but should all be in place within the coming week.

The currently existing login page begins with the URL “https://uwinid.uwindsor.ca/” and is displayed as:

The new login page begins with the URL “https://login.net.uwindsor.ca/” and is displayed as:

Both require that your current UWinID and Password be provided, as usual, to access the desired application.

If you have concerns about this change, please contact the IT ServiceDesk by opening a ticket at http://www.uwindsor.ca/itshelp or calling ext. 4440.
