Oxford Digital offers a range of single sign-on options for schools including:
- Microsoft Azure
- Google Identity*
- Learning Management System (LMS) Canvas integration with Oxford Digital
- Integration with LMSs that are LTI compliant
*Note: Google Identity schools have the additional option of turning on Google classroom share (obook pro titles only).
