    Moodle with Live@EDU logins

    Hi all

    I've asked this question over at Moodle.org but got no answer so just wondered if anyone here can help.


    Just a couple of questions if anyone is using the Microsoft Live@EDU (or Office365 now) service and plug-in and Moodle:

    1) Can you operate a mixed login environment ? i.e. have some users authenticating via Live@EDU and some using a normal Moodle login or does it have to be all one or the other ? I would have a few users (external teachers) who we wouldn't want or need to set up a mailbox for

    2) MS Live services had major problems on Friday. Am I right in assuming these outtages affect Moodle logins if using the service ? Anyone any good/bad experiences on this aspect ?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    1) the login method is set as a per-user thing so yes you can run it with mixed mode
    2) The outage I guess would have affected the moodle login part as it basically just redirects you to the login page for the live.com services, and then returns you to moodle. Due to our time zones we were unaffected by the outage.

    As already confirmed...

    1) yup just set each users' authentication field to the system you use... our tutors have LDAP and students Live@Edu
    2) depends on if it was LiveID that went down completely or just the email service...

    There's a newer version of the plugin in beta at the moment that's a bit quicker to sign in but I can't actually sign into the Education Labs site to give feedback on a few changes they need to make to it...
