This auth plugin combines the best of both email based signup and self enrolment keys into a streamlined process making it much faster for students to get into a course. For the student it saves around 9-10 clicks and avoids context switching between a browser and their email client where they can become easily become disengaged or run into issues if their email is unavailable.

A load balancer heartbeat / health checker url, and also a configurable nagios compliant cron health checker. This should work out of the box with most load balancers, eg Amazon ELB, F5, HA proxy etc as most of these simply check the http status for 200 or non-200 response codes.

This plugin allows an admin to create a Custom Security Policy (CSP) in both reporting mode and enforcing mode. A simple use case is to detect and cleanup issues with non secure content after a migration from http to https, through to advanced policies to mitigate from XSS attacks.

block_cqumymoodle
Allows staff and students to see enrolments they have in external systems (or other Moodle's). This was predominately created to allow links between archived and separated instances of Moodle, but keep the separation hidden to the users. Handy if you also have single-sign on between the systems, as it allows them to jump to external courses without having to login again.
