Moodle Authentication Change - Work Complete

by Nick Plank -

Status update:

We have successfully moved Moodle's authentication to Single Sign On.  

What does this mean?
When you come to Moodle, you will click the "Log in" button, like you always have.

When you click on "Log in", your browser will open a new tab to our Single Sign On provider.
You'll see a "User Name" and "Password" field.
In the "User Name" field, you'll enter your 6 letter user id, like "userna" or "plannc".
You'll enter your SNC password into the "Password" field. 

SNC Single Sign On

Why was this done?
Some applications, like Zoom and Knightline require Single Sign On (SSO) for authentication.  This means that signing into one of those applications allows you into all three.  This can streamline your day-to-day workflow, by decreasing the number of times you'll have to enter your username and password during the day.

Moodle Authentication Change - Single Sign On

by Nick Plank -

Hello All, 

We're changing how authentication into Moodle occurs.  In the past, you would click "Log in" in the upper right corner of the page, and would be brought to a page where you would click "SNC Google Login".

After 5 PM central today, when you click on "Log in", your browser will open a new tab to our Single Sign On provider.
You'll see a "User Name" and "Password" field.
In the "User Name" field, you'll enter your 6 letter user id, like "userna" or "plannc".
You'll enter your SNC password into the "Password" field. 

SNC Single Sign On

Once you're signed in, you will also be signed into other applications that are authenticated by Single Sign On, like KnightLine and Zoom.  This means that if you navigate to Zoom's Website or KnightLine, you won't need to sign into those applications for a few hours.

New Old Guard

With innumerable notebook doodles
Albino squirrels roamed, 
While Agnes greeted us all with smiles.
The past came, then passed.


Now I’m here to help you with Moodle
With hair that I forget to comb
And feet that have trudged miles
To arrive at a new place from the past.


I’m excited to be back at St Norbert to support Moodle, make positive and impactful changes, and foster student and faculty growth through this platform.  

Please reach out to me if I can help you with anything!
