Spotlight: Training

Ignite Training

As we approach June, Ignite training has pivoted to virtual mode and preparations are in full swing. You can find the training you need on the front page in the “Find Help” section on the Ignite website. All training is being developed to be completed online. If you have questions, please reach out to your Ignite Business Officer or email ignite@baylor.edu. The Business Officers are a tremendous resource! We all have an important stake in the success of Ignite. Thank you for your continuous support.

How Ignite Benefits You: Single Sign-On

Ignite will allow you to log in with one set of credentials to access the entire Ignite system. All users will log in with their Baylor BearID and password, using Duo. No separate login name or password to remember! Firefox, Chrome and Safari are all supported on both Windows and MacOS. Edge on Windows is also supported. Single sign-on creates many benefits:

  • Reduces password confusion
  • Simplifies your username and password management
  • Increases speed where it is needed most
  • Eases the need for help desk support
  • Consolidates access to functionality currently requiring multiple system logins into just the Ignite login

Six Guiding Principles: Transparency & Inclusion

The decisions around Ignite have been driven by adhering to the Six Guiding Principles of the project. By focusing on one area each month, we will highlight how these principles have been put into practice. The fourth principle is Transparency & Inclusion.

Throughout the Ignite project, the project team has worked to involve campus constituents as sharable information was available and to take feedback to improve future communications. Click here to read more.
