Managing student engagement is a breeze in the cloud.
OrgSync provides a cloud-hosted, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform built using the latest technologies to create an integrated and secure solution for Higher Education. The technology behind OrgSync enables our highly skilled, in-house development team to continually expand our platform without burdening campus IT with maintenance and updates.
The OrgSync platform is developed completely in-house and is written using Ruby on Rails. We utilize Amazon Web Services (AWS) and leverage cloud-computing technology to deliver a highly scalable application capable of meeting the needs of any size institution. By providing a cloud-hosted solution, our platform is available on-demand for all our users and allows us to release new products, platform updates, and feature enhancements to everyone at once. All data stored in OrgSync is continuously backed up to ensure your information is secure.
We have instituted numerous security measures to ensure your data is safe and backed up on a consistent basis. All OrgSync server certificates are signed by a recognized Certificate authority (DigiCert) and use 256-bit SSL encryption for all communication behind the login wall. All communication amongst the database, application, and authentication servers is also conducted via secure connections.
No one will have access to nor will we disclose any information from a student educational record without the written consent of the student except to “school official with legitimate educational interests,” to authorized representatives of the federal and state governments for audit and evaluation of federal and state supported programs, or other provisions outlined by the FERPA document.
Students are not required to provide educational content in order to participate in OrgSync. Educational records kept on students at OrgSync.com may include:
- Personal or biographical data as gathered through the registration process
- Course and event enrollments, grades, and club involvement
- Administrator comments regarding student or organization conduct
Just as universities and colleges must honor any student’s request to opt out of releasing directory information, so will we. Any students submitting such a request are responsible for notifying OrgSync of this request so covered information may be removed from our system.
