Please note that we don't provide any support for this plugin in the comments section on this page anymore. Please have a look at the github repository of this plugin.

With this integration and the current OpenMeetings version 5.x you can create different types of rooms and separated users in OpenMeetings with the access-level "SOAP-Only". The "SOAP-Only" user can do exactly what is needed to run the integration but nothing more. This does result in no need for any OpenMeetings Admin-User in the Moodle Module config! So you can better protect your OpenMeetings server from non-authorized access via the SOAP Gateway and no need to share confidential account data. "SOAP-Only" users can not login to OpenMeetings administration. OpenMeetings also supports access via https and ldap-/Active Directory- and OAuth2-Integration.

The latest OpenMeetings Moodle Plugin is for Moodle 3.5 and later and is compatible only with OpenMeetings version 5.x. It is recommended to update to the latest version of OpenMeetings.

Sample Video showing the installation of the Moodle Module and integration with new access level:

The features of the OpenMeetings Moodle Plugin:
- Openmeetings rooms can be displayed inside a Moodle course in a frame, in a new window or can occupy the entire window
- Secure "SOAP-Only" user access level (see documentation on top)
- 3 Moderation Types for Conference Rooms (Moodle admins, teachers and course creators are automatically a moderator):
Moderation Type A) Participants need to wait till the teacher enters the room
Moderation Type B) Participants can already start (first User in room becomes moderator)
Moderation Type C) Every participant is automatically moderator when he/she enters the room
- 3 Room Types (Conference, Interview & Presentation)
- New Flag "Allow Recording": You can set in the room configuration now a flag that controls if the recording button is available or not
- Moodle Module languages: German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Brazilian (OpenMeetings itself has around 30 languages)
- Clear and restructure conference creation form for Moodle moderators

    I'm afraid `"This content has been blocked because it was not signed with a valid security certificate."` is not OM message
    So it seems your browser blocks your self-signed certificate

    I can only suggest you to use real certificate in this case

    I used moodle3.82 and openmeetings4.0.10.
    An error occurred whether or not SSL was used:
    "Fault (Service error)
    Could not login User to OpenMeetings, check your OpenMeetings Module Configuration"

    In jee-container.xml, openmeetings4.0.10 is configured to enable SSL.

    The previous problem was resolved, but now there is a new problem: with SSL enabled, audio and video cannot be used.Are there any Settings that need to be changed?

    When I try to access the room through moodle it says Access denied. You have no rights to enter this room.

    According to Kurento Media Server devs 100 users are possible if 99 will have no audio/video (i.e. will be watchers/listeners)

    Hi, I have some questions: Is it free? Does it work with 3.9? Is it secure? Does it let Moodle slow? Thanks a lot!

    Yes, OpenMeetings Moodle plugin is free, it works as expected with Moodle 3.9 (just have tested it)
    AFAIK it doesn't slow down Moodle
