Alex Pearce provided a three part series of how to implement Sharepoint as the document repository for Moodle. As a follow up we asked “why?” Thankfully, Alex has posted a rundown of the reasoning behind an implementation and the benefits that a Moodle administrator and Moodle-using organization might receive upon a successful implementation. From his post,

- file editing and version control
- web apps
- and more.
