Has anyone looked at this Desire2Learn AuthN framework.  Looks scary to me.   --Keith

Scott: you may be interested particularly in this section on Auth: <http://docs.valence.desire2learn.com/basic/auth.html>

All --

I shared information (<http://code.google.com/p/desire2learn-valence/>) with some of you last fall about Desire2Learn's new RESTful Web Services API (Valence), which replaces the older deprecated SOAP API (D2LWS 1.0).  

Desire2Learn has released new documentation on this that you may be interested in exploring:

Scott: you may be interested particularly in this section on Auth: <http://docs.valence.desire2learn.com/basic/auth.html>

Let me know if you have any questions.

I just did today, and yes to me too.   From what I can tell, the user is asked to authenticate to the app -- and this is supposed to be a virtue.    I don't have much context yet.  I want to find out from Dan how this is being marketed.
