Hi Guys,

Here is a tricky question that I hope someone can solve. 

We have just purchased a set of 20 Chromebooks. We are a Google Apps for Edu school and run Moodle as our VLE. 

Our students log into our network and are authenticated against Active Directory, they can then log directly into Moodle, as well as being automatically logged into their Google Apps Accounts. (no sign in required)

So we have Moodle log in's and Google Apps log in's, Authenticated against AD, allowing for single sign on SSO across the network.

However this does not work with our Chromebooks, as we get an error message when students try to log directly into Chromebooks. (Incorrect username and password) This is because of our Moodle and Google Apps sync are authenticating against AD.

 The easy option is to disable Moodle/Google Apps sync on our Moodle. However this is a very convenient and time-saving function and would prefer to continue to use this option. 

Has anyone encountered a similar problem to this or does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem other than a complex work around?

Regards
Darren

We have a slightly different set-up that I think SHOULD work in this case. We have Moodle /AD integration working. We then use Google Apps Password Sync with AD. (Not SSO but password sync).

Because the AD password for the Google Apps account always matches the AD password. So when Moodle sends the password to Google Apps the authentication succeeds.

I'd be interested if GAPS works rather than SSO.

You will only notice a difference if your device was bogged down before the update. In my case the Nexus 7 had been sluggish since the time it had less than 1.5 GB free, even though I later freed up another 3 GB.

Don't think it will take off. But an interesting design experiment.
