SAML authentication

Has anyone looked at authenticating Ning users using SAML or Sibboleth?I hear this authentication approach is being widely adopted in the US.In Australia, the Australina Access Federation (AAF) has adopted Shibboleth authetication for authentication educational institutions and services providers to assist with research collaboration.Griffith University is looking into options to authenticate to externally hosted software and services using this mechanism as a standard.See More

Hi, no, it is someone else who is not part of this network. Can you let me know what your work email address is so that I can pass on his details?

Website Translation Services

I've been tasked with getting some of our website translated into Spanish and Chinese. We had some pages translated into Spanish several years ago, but since multi-lingual was not part of our workflow, the content on those pages quickly became out-of-date and were just recently removed from the site.Do any of you have pages translated to other languages? Do you use a 3rd-party service to do it, or someone on campus with those skills? Or an automated service like Google translate?For those of…See More

"We did one in 2012 and 2013, but not 2014. We initially got caught up in the buzz because everyone was doing them, and it seemed like a fun idea. But this last cycle we were so busy with other projects we couldn't justify carving out the time.…"

Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More
