Question

  Can I let users sign in to PowerSchool Learning straight from my school's website? 

 

Answer

 

Yes, you easily let users sign in to PowerSchool Learning from nearly any website by adding a simple HTML form. Use the following HTML form as a starting point.

 

<form method="post" action="https://"your_subdomain".haikulearning.com/do/account/login"> 
  <label class="login" for="login">Username</label>
  <input id="login" type="text" name="login" />

  <label class="login" for="password">Password</label>
  <input id="password" type="password" name="password" />

  <!-- The "remember_me" input is optional -->
  <label for="remember_me">Remember me</label>
  <input id="remember_me" type="checkbox" name="remember_me" value="0" />
  
  <input type="submit" value="Enter" name="commit" />
</form>

Google Apps Login

Google's login form is more difficult to recreate, and based on their terms of service, should not be placed on non-Google webpage.  For this reason PowerSchool Learning provides Google Apps users a link to their Google Apps login form.  You can do the same on your schools website using a link like this:

 
<a href="https://"your_subdomain".haikulearning.com/do/authentication/google/google_begin?google_domain="your_google_domain.com" target='_blank'>
  Sign In with your Google Apps Account
</a>

Limitations

There are a few caveats you should know about:

 

  • If the given username & password are incorrect the user will be taken to your school's standard PowerSchool Learning login page (not to the page where you've placed your login form).
  • Our password reset tool currently doesn't play nice with these types of login forms. We suggest you offer your users a "Forgot your password?" link with instruction to visit the standard PowerSchool Learning login screen.
