FAO: ELGG users and Moodle Users
Has anyone combined elgg and moodle (for file sharing)?
Does anyone know away of copying files from a windows directory to a 'my files' section of elgg so when a user logs on they will see all the files or is this not possible?. I have tried and the files which I have pasted will not be displayed within elgg?????? any ideas?
any help would be great
Re: FAO: ELGG users and Moodle Users
I've not done this, but I've been keen to try it out for quite a while. Unfortunately too many other things to do atm and little interest from teachers/SMT.
From what I understand it is quite a common setup, there are howtos:
and google pulls a lot advice. TBH I'm not really sure if you can do what you describe with the windows share.
To be really cutting edge you'd need to integrate the filesystem with Alfresco :) - now that would be special - and then you could drag and drop from windows shares or ftp or webdav or http. A google of alfresco and moodle reveals that work is in progress to get moodle to use the JSR-170 repository (that alfresco uses) - it looks like its been put back to moodle v2.0 2008 though

You can see a demo server of the integration at solutiongrove.net.
Not sure if it does the file sharing you are describing exactly but you can try it out. It does allow the teacher to export files from a Moodle assignment to the Elgg portfolio.
