Michigan State to Manage Non-Credit Programs with CMS

Michigan State University has licensed Jenzabar's Non-Traditional System (NTS) to help manage the non-credit programs scattered throughout the university. Historically, the offices maintained their own processes for setting up an offering, registering participants, taking payments, and managing the rosters and data. MSU believes the new platform will produce several key benefits, including reducing administrative overhead; better protection of sensitive data; and better ease-of-use for potential participants to find program offerings.

The Jenzabar system will enable the school to reduce overhead and streamline development of the offerings. The system will also help bring online registration capability to the non-credit programs, allow for near-real-time registration and payment processing.

Tokyo Institute Deal Weds Logical and Physical ID Manager

The Tokyo Institute of Technology acquired a number of security and authentication solutions in order to expand and simplify its Web-based services offerings and authentication systems. The Institute, in a deal with identity management firm Entrust Inc., will receive a number of tools to enable them to combine logical and physical access to campus resources with smartcard technology. Students and faculty will also have a way to authenticate themselves in the event a smartcard reader is not available.

The Institute will deploy a host of security technologies from Entrust, including an access server, an identity manager, and an authentication manager. With the new systems, students and faculty can authenticate themselves to work either online, through an automated telephone system, in person, or for VPN or wireless LAN access. "Our long term goal was to have a security solution that would integrate with an all-campus information repository," said Katsuyoshi Iida, associate professor in the school’s Global Scientific Information and Computing Center.
