16.4. Users

User management can be one of the most time-consuming jobs for a system administrator. As your system grows, the number of users who lose their password or have difficulty creating a new account grows as well. Fortunately, there are a few tools to help make the job of user management easier.

16.4.1. Authentication

In Chapter 2, we covered how to create a user account using email authentication. You created the account and Moodle sent you an email with a link to confirm your address. While this is an effective and efficient way to create new accounts, Moodle provides a number of other account-authentication methods as well. If you are in a university environment and have access to a university email or directory server, you can tell Moodle to use them to authenticate new user accounts instead.
