What are cookies, and why do I need to enable them?

Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. Moodle uses cookies to store and pass on your username as you move from page to page. If you are having problems accessing Moodle then you may need to configure your browser settings so that your computer will accept cookies.

Two cookies are used by this site.

The essential one is the session cookie, usually called MoodleSession. You must allow this cookie into your browser to provide continuity and maintain your login from page to page. When you log out or close the browser this cookie is destroyed (in your browser and on the server).

The other cookie is purely for convenience, usually called something like MOODLEID. It just remembers your username within the browser. This means when you return to this site the username field on the login page will be already filled out for you. It is safe to refuse this cookie - you will just have to retype your username every time you log in.
