Filters: Planet eStream Authentication Plugin
The Planet eStream Authentication Plugin
The Planet eStream Authentication Plugin will automatically authenticate Moodle users with matching Planet eStream usernames when viewing embedded quizzes that have been added via the Planet eStream text editor plugins.
Quizzes in Planet eStream require a registered user to take, so that answer data can be submitted back to the system and viewed by staff. When a quiz is embedded into Moodle, the filter will automatically detect the logged in Moodle user, and if their user name matches that of a Planet eStream user, they will be able to take the quiz immediately without logging into eStream. Their answer data will then be submitted to eStream as questions are answered.
Viewing statistics for each user will also be submitted back to eStream for each video added after this filter has been installed.
The authentication plugin is compatible with Moodle v2.7 and later and requires Planet eStream v6.30 or later.
