I have spent the better part of today understanding file management in Moodle and am still uncertain on a couple of items that hopefully you experts can help with. We are running version 2.2, and we need to be able to upload one file once and have that file be used in many courses, when that file needs updating, it must be updated only once. My understanding is that this can not be done in Moodle yet? Unless we utilize the 'Legacy Course Files' which is less than ideal?
If I am correct, then can this be done using an external repository? I am looking at Alfresco and am wandering if we can host our files in Alfresco and then link to them in Moodle or does Moodle copy the files from Alfresco? While browsing Alfresco's website I notice they have a cloud version of their services, can their cloud be used for this purpose?
Thanks for any help.
