wechat - integration
 

Hi,


as we have a platform visited by Chinese student we ponder on

using webchat(-api). Most of all in order to let them log in

more conveniently (i.e.).


Now 2 questions:


1.) Can you get started on how to set up a feature on a Moodle platform

     that allows users to log in via wechat? I have a wechat account

     What are the technical requierements ? implementation of oauth2 etc.

     How tos, summary of basic steps.


2.) What are your experiences concerned with the wechat - integration ?

     Benefits, best practises, risks etc.



Looking forward to your comnents.



Fabienne

Hi,

you can always force the users to log-in in the Mobile app using the Moodle web version authentication system, it is explained here: https://docs.moodle.org/34/en/Moodle_Mobile_guide_for_admins

Basically, the mobile app will open a browser pointing to your Moodle site log-in page and once the user is logged the app will be launched back with the user already logged-in
