Many are discovering the advantages of using Google Drive/MS One Drive (other) for
document storage and serving (including videos and audios). In Moodle, one uses a URL resource and the icon stays the same for all such resources in a course. The only way to indicate the URL is on Google Drive/One Drive or other is to use some designator in the link to the resource ... like a '(GD)' for a Google Drive resource.
So ... a proposal ...
* An alternate set of URL resource icons for: Google Drive/Docs, MS One Drive, other.
* A system wide setting to use alt URL icons ... with pre-selects for Google Drive and/or
Microsoft's One Drive, etc.
* A setting in a course to use alt URL icons and which set.
* When creating a URL resource to such a document/file, option to choose which icon.
Would make a Moodle more user friendly ... user is informed by icon before clicking any
such URL resource.
