Enhance collaboration by providing shared folders to your students automatically. No need to collect Dropbox or ownCloud e-mail addresses anymore: Just add it to a course and select the groups that should collaborate. ownCloud/Nextcloud will privately share one folder per group to its members!

Collaborative Folders v3.7-r2

Moodle 3.5, 3.6, 3.7
Released: Friday, May 10, 2019, 10:21 PM

Stable release v3.7-r2.


  • Generated paths will not contain a slash (/) anymore.
  • Paths are now of the form Module name (id 9) instead of ..._id_9, thus achieving consistency with the naming scheme of repository_nextcloud.
  • A new segment is added to the end of the path. Generated paths always end in mod_collaborativefolders, also for consistency with the naming scheme of repository_nextcloud.
