Decisions Pt 1 - User Accounts

Ta and I sat down this morning and made some decisions. We still have a lot of research to do:

- Because of the residents and med students, we are going to allow people to access Moodle outside our network. As a result, we will have to maintain 2 databases (network user and Moodle Only user) and find ways to merge the 2 when necessary. If anyone has any suggestions, please post!

- The user ID protocol will match the one we have for our network. We're hoping this will make it easier to match users if we need to merge them.

We still need to figure out what we want to do for a pre-registration process. I know we can lock some courses down with enrollment keys. I also don't have a good feel for how much control the upper management wants to maintain over course enrollment.

If anyone (corporate or academic) has a user account and permissions workflow for their LMS that works for them - I could really use the feedback.
