Aced It

The ACE login page gets a fresh look to improve how users access UNLV applications, like WebCampus. The new page will be released in late July.

The ACE login page is getting a new, cleaner look — the first step to make accessing UNLV applications easier. The redesign launches in late July. 

The upgrade means a better user experience, according to Jesse Taylor, project lead and identity and middleware services manager in the Office of Information Technology.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve technology services,” he said. “Modernizing the ACE login system is a part of that effort. This upgrade will bring an added level of security and make it easier for users to access campus applications.”

WebCampus, the university’s learning management system, is one of the first campus applications to use the new login page. More applications are being added in the coming months, which include RebelMail, UNLVMail, and Webex.

With its sleek design, the page looks more modern than the current version. It includes a place for users to add their ACE username and password, a link to the IT Help Desk resources, and a blue icon that users click to sign in.

New ACE login page

Employees may recognize the new ACE login page. They have been using it to sign into Workday, the university’s human resources and payroll system, for some time.

Taylor said using a unified login page for other campus applications was by design.

“As we migrate more services, the single login page ensures users have the same experience when they sign into available applications.”

In the future, students and employees will use the new ACE login page to view a menu of UNLV applications in one location. Once signed in, they can use a personalized dashboard to access applications throughout the day without having to enter their ACE username or password again.

“The full upgrade is going to transform the user experience,” said Taylor. “With only one login required, we anticipate students and employees will find the new service more convenient and easier to access campus applications they need academically and professionally.”
