The Microsoft® Live Services plugin for Moodle implements an integration with Windows LiveTM Services allowing users to log into courses using their Windows Live ID and display Live Services on a Moodle site. Users can see and create emails and calendar events with Outlook® Live or Windows Live Hotmail®, and access Windows Live Messenger chat, BingTM search and more within a course.

  • You can search the web using BingTM.
  • Quick access to e-mail and calendar events. You will either have access to Windows Live Hotmail® or Outlook Live and calendar events. New messages and events are displayed in the block right in your Moodle course.
  • Quick access to Windows Live Messenger where you can easily determine who is on/off line and send messages to Teachers and students in the course. You will need to allow others to see you in your Windows Live Web Settings before you can see and chat with each other.
