Perhaps timely for the announcement of LinkedIn University Pages yesterday, the LinkedIn Auth and Block for Moodle has been released for Moodle 2.5 by Bas Brands. The tool provides a way for potential Moodlers to register/login to your site with their LinkedIn account credentials (similar to Facebook Connect). The tool uses OAuth [] and is incredibly easy to use as an end user.

The block is clearly marked with options to login,
