Here are a few benefits of using shibboleth and Moodle together.
- Allow you to seamlessly login to Moodle using shibboleth and allowing one set of credentials to authenticate the user (this can be using the Active Directory credentials for example).
- Most institutions tend to have Moodle as one of the first pages for their users so enabling shibboleth on Moodle allows users to seamlessly access the Moodle as soon as the browser loads and then once authenticated to seamlessly (without logging in again) to move on to other resources .
- Using one set of credentials increases security as users will not need to remember multiple passwords (which generally leads to users writing down the passwords in clear text).
