The DirectEdit Link is the simplest way to log in and go directly to the page you need to edit. Logging in to edit your pages is as simple as clicking a link. The DirectEdit link is a “hidden” link on every published webpage that you can use to access the OU Campus interface.
How to Login to OU Campus
- Open the page you want to edit in a Web browser
- Scroll to the bottom of the page
- Click on the “Last Updated (modified date)”
- At the SDSU Shibboleth Login screen, enter your SDSUid username and password
- Once you are logged in, you will be taken to your OU Campus dashboard and will need to navigate the folder structure to find the page you want to update
If you are not able to log in, please contact your Site Administrator.
You are now logged in to OU Campus. You can edit the page you are on or use your dashboard to edit other pages and content.
To edit the page you need to have the proper access privileges granted in order to access the page. If you click the DirectEdit link from a page to which you don’t have editing access, you will be logged into OU Campus, but will be unable to view that page.
When attempting to login to OU Campus, whether through a bookmarked login page or the Direct Edit link at the bottom of the page, you will be presented with the Shibboleth login page.
On this page, enter your SDSUid username (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) in the field labeled SDSUid. Use your SDSUid password on this page, even if you have previously been assigned a password for use in OU Campus. For information about managing your SDSUid password, visit Manage My SDSUid.
When you are finished working in OU Campus, use the Logout link in OU Campus. When the logout process is complete, the following page should be displayed:
As noted on this page, you must close your browser to complete the logout process. This is especially important if you login to OU Campus from a shared computer.
If you enter your login information incorrectly, you will be prompted to login again. If you fail to login 3 times, you will be locked out of OU Campus. If this occurs, contact your account administrator to have your user unlocked.
If your administrator has unlocked your account in OU Campus (or finds that your account is not locked within OU Campus), your SDSUid account may be locked. If this is the case, you will need to contact your domain administrator or the appropriate help desk (contact information can be found on the SDSUid Help page).
The username you entered cannot be identified
If you see the message "The username you entered cannot be identified," as pictured below, it means you attempted to login to an account/page in OU Campus for which you do not have an account, you mistyped your SDSUid (or left out the "@sdsu.edu" portion), or attempted to login using your Red ID instead of your SDSUid.
If you used your SDSUid username and password and received this message, check to ensure you are logging into the correct site, and contact your OU administrator if you continue to receive this message.
