Landing : Athabascau University

Landing logo

Welcome to the Landing!

If you have an AU login or are an invited guest, this is your site. You can use this site to share, communicate and connect. Just log in with your usual AU username and password to join over 15,000 other members.

You are currently only seeing posts that Landing users have made publicly available. There's a great deal more to see when you are logged in. If you have an Athabasca University username, log in to see more!

If you wish to become an invited guest, please contact an AU staff member, who may make the request on your behalf. We do not support self-registration for non-AU users, though we welcome thoughtful comments on public posts.

Some users have recently experienced problems logging in, despite having been authenticated by the login system. They are getting the message "ERROR: Failed authenticating user". It is only affecting a minority of users. We are not able to replicate this and do not yet know the cause.  If you suffer from this error, keep trying: for those affected, it appears to eventually work.  For some people it works the second time, others have tried more than 30 times before getting in. And please inform us of the problem, at landing@athabascau.ca if it happens to you. It would help us to diagnose the problem if you would tell us the time it occurred, and the name of your ISP (we think there may be a pattern), as well as how many times it took you to finally get in.
