We are on:
O/S: Ubuntu 16.04+, Version: 3.9.4+ (2020061504.01), Release: 01.22.2021, PHP: 7.2.34-21, MySQL: 5.7.31
Trying to get an understanding about OneDrive.
Once we implement this, my questions are:
1. If a student/user/teacher is connected to their oneDrive and using the file picker, they "upload" or submit their file (say 5 GB - a video or drawing file) as an assignment or something to a course, is this file an actual file that is "pushed" to our moodle data directly and stored there or IS IT just a link to the user's OneDrive repository? If not, would it not defeat the purpose of reducing large moodledata directory space?
2. I hope it the previous where it is just a link and not an actually file stored on the moodle data folder. I think so because uploading large files is resource intensive and could time out.
3. If it is a link, what happens if the student or user has left the school, would the link still be active where the instructor can still view their file?
Ideally, we'd like to inform our instructors to backup their course files and save it to their OneDrive repository instead to save space on the moodle server.
Thank you in advance for clarifying and educating me on the 3 questions I have above.
