    Set up an alias?

    Our english department wants to run a forum with their names coming up as characters from the book they are working on. An online role play exercise to get the students to question them about events in the book. Does anyone know of a module, activity or a way to do this? My first thought was to create new accounts for them but where we run integrated login of course they don't get the option to log on as someone else!

    I've had a quick look around and it doesn't seem like it's possible to post as another user.

    Is there not a way to log out of a user account when using integrated authentication then? Not even if you visit the Moodle log out page?

    It may be I need to test that and end up giving them a link to the login page. It looks like there used to be a roleplay module but that hasn't been updated since 1.6. Shame.
