This repository plugin for Moodle allows to link files in Amazon S3, instead of copying them to Moodle. Requests are authenticated, so it works for private files. Only logged in users can access linked files.

You can configure multiple instances of the repository, each one tied to an specific endpoint and bucket.

    When you say links, does this mean if i add a file to the amazon bucket it will appear to users in the course?

    Jesse: No, you need to add the files as URL resources.

    Hi Albert, this looks like it could be a great plugin, however I don't seem to be able to get site wide repository instances that I've created to appear in the file picker when adding a file resource to a course, am I doing something wrong?

    Hi Andy. You need to use a URL resource, the file resource only shows repositories that can import files into Moodle.

    Que difícil, cuándo envías mensajes al desarrollor del plugin, se conecta pero no te contesta. Bueno espero Albert que nos pueda apoyar sobre la consulta insertar el mismo enlace desde el boton del editor atto en una página.

    Hi Albert, Could you please this plugin work with scorm packages. I can add links to page mod, but for the scorm packages when I insert the file link (imsmanifest.xml) as an external scorm manifest it does not load keys to view the whole course.
