Here’s a cool video by Akademik Teknoloji that highlights the process of integrating OwnCloud storage as a Moodle repository. According to its site,

Post Pages - Post Inline - WIRIS

ownCloud gives you universal access to your files through a web interface or WebDAV. It also provides a platform to easily view & sync your contacts, calendars and bookmarks across all your devices and enables basic editing right on the web. Installation has minimal server requirements, doesn’t need special permissions and is quick. ownCloud is extendable via a simple but powerful API for applications and plugins.

Once WebDAV is enabled in your Moodle server and you have OwnCloud up and running the configuration is at the user/admin level via Moodle. Catch the video for a full explanation and how files are accessed. Read more about WebDAV repositories in Moodle at http://docs.moodle.org/25/en/WebDAV_repository.

  1. “collaborative editing! This feature is implemented in an app called “ownCloud Documents” and will be part of ownCloud 6. People can view and edit their ODF text documents directly in the browser, inside your ownCloud. Another cool thing is that you can invite users from the same ownCloud to work collaboratively on the same document with you. Or you can send invitation links by email to people outside your server to collaborate with you on the document.”
