About studentforce

“… And I have become convinced that the most revolutionary force for change is the students themselves. Give children [students] the tools they need and they will be the single most important source of guidance on how to make the schools relevant and effective” Don Tapscott, 1999

Proliferation of alternative education distribution models (MOOCs, On Line courses, HybridsStudy Abroad and others) have created SILOs of academic activity and achievement data that students must track. Built upon the salesforce.com force.com platform, studentforce is a 100% NATIVE & 100% DECLARATIVE platform extension designed to serve student users. By providing students access as full PLATFORM users they will no doubt encourage exponential adoption among themselves while inspiring Higher Ed to implement platform solutions for challenges faculty and business users face daily.

There exists no other intuitively qualified user group than students to spark Higher Education’s [r]evolution into the cloud through the intelligent use of SaaS [studentforce] + Collaboration [Chatter] + Mobile. By leveraging tools students currently use and are easily accessed now through any connected device, students manage day-to-day activities, track assignments and projects, organize career and financial related endeavors and collaborate with faculty, staff, and one another.

    I am an admin in the IT department at KKR logistics, a supply chain solutions provider in the medical vertical. We are evaluating “studentforce.Com” for our internal use and while evaluation your application, we have the following questions and need some clarification. Appreciate if you could provide us with details.

    1) Do you allow user to create role based authentication policies ?
    2) Do you support multi-factor authentication ?
    3) Do you provide any SSO (Single Sign on) or AD (Active Directory) hooks ?
    4) Do you support granular action based authorization policy ?
    5) Do you have any device (Mobile, Tablet, PC) type restrictions ?
    6) Do you provide IP filtering or monitor some restricted IP ?
    7) Do you have password policy ? Like: “passwords set to expire at pre-defined intervals (like 7 days, 1week, 90 days etc) and passwords mandatorily require special characters and other rules (upper case, numbers, total length, etc)” !
    8) We wanted to find out if you encrypted (or supported encrypting) the data (in transit and rest) we store in your app (in your database, file store, etc)?
    9) Do you separate each of your customer’s data in a separate database or separate file store? (or are they intermingled).
    10) Do you support encrypting our data with a key we manage and provide ?
    11) Do you allow us to classify our data into different categories, so that we can set different retention/etc policies on them? If you do allow the classification, do you allow each type of data to have different encryption, access control policies, etc?
    12) Do you have a disaster recovery plan (If Yes, do you publish your DR plan ?) and can you share your data center locations?
    13) What types of certifications and compliance does your data center follow?
    14) Do you have reports and logs on your infrastructure, like: uptime and downtime, etc? (Where do you publish your report ?)
    15) Do you have software/hardware/data center change/upgrade notifications readily available for customers? (How do you notify ?)
    16) Do you provide “Admin Audit Logs”, “User Audit Logs”, “Data Access Logs” ? If you do, then in what format & do you have a weekly/monthly reports?
    17) Do you support file sharing ? If YES, then what is the maximum file size can be share at a time ?

    Your answers will help us to take better decision, before we start using “studentforce.Com”.

    Firstly I want to thank you for compiling so much great information and links on your website https://studentforce.wordpress.com/about/. I found it very useful and helpful for my research purposes. However, I just stumbled across a broken link labeled Don Tapscott, 1999. If you are still updating the site I wanted to suggest a additional resource. The site is:


    Hope your future visitors benefit out of it as much as I did. Thank you for your time and take care.
