This handbook is created with the purpose of having information about all IT services in COEP in one place. COEP provides three "accounts" to all the students and staff members. These are

  • Email account
  • MIS account
  • Moodle account (also called as LDAP account)

Note that each of these accounts has a different login id and password.

Moodle Account (openLDAP account)

openLDAP enables us to use single login/password pair for many websites within COEP.

Here is a diagram explaining how the COEP openLDAP is used.

Typically the login id for students is their MIS ID.For staff, generally, it matches with their email account user id. Remember, your email account is still a different entity and has a different login id + password. For example, if the email id for staff is then the openLDAP login id will be xyz.dept (without the part) with a different password.

If you have forgotten your openLDAP password, please ask data center to reset it.

The services accessible using your openLDAP (or also called as the Moodle) account, i.e. same login-password pair, are:
