The University's Information Security Office has announced that beginning on February 25th, use of the Stanford Virtual Private Network (VPN) will require two-step authentication. Stanford's VPN service is frequently used by hackers to gain unauthorized access to Stanford resources via compromised SUNet accounts. The addition of two-step authentication will prevent this abuse, just as it strongly protects access to our web-based services.

For more information and instructions on the changes to the VPN service, see ITS's Two-Step Authentication for VPN webpage. Once the additional security is in place, should you experience problems using VPN, please submit a HelpSU ticket.

An overview of Stanford's two-step authentication is available online.  Additionally, IT Services will provide in-person training on two-step authentication on Thursday Feb. 19th, from 10-11 in the SSRC room in Green Library.

In recent years, discussions of educational technology, and its role in supporting student learning, have attracted significant interest in higher education and across our campus. At the core of this discussion is the embedded assumption (which are right to question) that the significant technological advancements driving these educational technologies have translated into equal progress in the advancement of student learning outcomes.
