    Moodle - simulataneous login

    Is there a way of having to logon's to Moodle (CLEO Hosted) open at the same time on same computer so I can be logged on as administrator and also logged on as a student in another window to test out things?

    regards

    The most obvious way to do this is to use 2 different browsers - I've done this before

    I don't know of any way to sandbox cookies like that (because that's what you'd have to effectively do). It's a good idea for a firefox addon though!

    I will try and explain how to pose as a user while logged in as admin.

    Firstly, when you go into a particular course in the top right hand corner (right hand side of the breadcums) you will see a drop down which allows you to change the type of role you are signed in as.

    Usually in the top right corner once you are in a course. Use the dropdown.

    Been beaten to it!

    Or... if you have your participants (people) block, click on a student to get to their profile and you as admin should have an option at the bottom -log in as -

    both not the method that i mentioned,

    Browse for any user and click on there name, this takes you to there profile.

    At the bottom of the profile is a button which says: login as

    You then return to the moodle logged in as that user. You can do anything that user can do!!!!

    Thats the best way to login as a student, teacher or anyone ( apart from other admins )

    I'd thought I'd tried that and it didn't work - but tried it again and it worked fine - ta
