Introducing the Microsoft Office 365 Block

As you look at your courses you might notice that something new has appeared!

This block allows you to link your Moodle account to your Office 365 account, and we recommend that you do it.

All staff and students have an Office 365 account, and it is what you are using when you access your school email.

You can link your account by clicking on "Connect to Office 365". When you do this you may be taken to a Microsoft login page where you will be asked to enter your password. This is safe to do.

Once you've granted this permission to link your Microsoft block will start to look like this:

From here you can see that you have very convenient links to access your email, your OneDrive and your Microsoft Stream account. It significantly reduces the number of times that you will be asked to enter your username and password. It also allows you to upload and download files from the VLE into your OneDrive cloud folder rather than to and from the device that you are using at the time.

A word of caution

You may be offered the chance to "Use your Office 365 credentials to log in to Moodle". While this wouldn't be completely catastrophic we strongly recommend that you don't do this, and don't make any changes to this setting.

We hope that you find the new integration useful.
