SSO for Moodle and Mahara

We've now activated "Single sign-on" (SSO) from Moodle to Mahara!

When you log in to Moodle you will see a box called "network servers" on the right side. Click on "Mediatech Mahara" there and you will be redirected to the Mahara installation. Set a new password there.

Once you've set that password you can log into Mahara without logging in to Moodle first.

Your Moodle profile information will be transferred to Mahara once you've used SSO.

The Link in the top menu (this one) will now use SSO and will redirect you to the Moodle login in case you're not logged in yet.
