Hi All,

UPDATE: This is still an issue. Please do not use the Moodle mobile app. Please contact Instructional Technology if you have any questions.


You may or may not be aware that there is a new mobile app for Moodle. While this is exciting, I must caution you to not use it. It was recently discovered that upon first login, user credentials (username and password) are sent over the network as clear text. This means that it would be very easy for someone to capture that information out of the air, through the wireless network. Until the developers of this app can fix this issue, I would discourage anyone from using the app. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact me.

Happy Moodling,
