AWS Cognito and Federated Identities

I have two application environments in the cloud. 1) a Wordpress site providing protected courses through an LMS. 2) a custom-built mobile app. Users of both are currently authenticating against a single Cognito user pool - authentication is working perfectly. I have a new customer that wants their users to have access to both these environments. The catch is they do not want their users to maintain credentials in my Cognito environment. Surely there is a solution in federated identities and/or SAML and/or OAuth - but I need some help to understand the large component parts, and maybe some of the implementation. Thanks!
