plugin is installed in the normal fashion for Moodle plugins either by
cloning the repository into the repository directory from the github repository or downloading a zip and following the installation instructions:
Unpack the plugin into /repository/office365 within your Moodle install.
From the Moodle Administration block, expand Site Administration and click "Notifications".
Follow the on-screen instructions to install the plugin.

usability is the same for a teacher or student with the OneDrive for
Business repository plugin. The user accesses the Onedrive repository
from the file picker. After clicking the add file button they select the
OneDrive Repository from the repository list. From there the user will
need to either click up a directory to access the my files folder or
use the course files folder. Once the user has determined a folder they
can select the file they want to add or they can choose to upload a new
file from their desktop to OneDrive. After selecting the file the user
has the typical settings for the file in Moodle. They can determine to
duplicate the file in Moodle or link to the file in OneDrive.
Duplicating the file means that any changes in OneDrive will not show in
Moodle. Linking means the opposite.
the teachers is creating a file resource in Moodle they also have the
option to embed the file directly on the page. This only works if the
teacher selects to link to the file instead of duplicating it. If this
is done then the file is displays embedded on the page with a border
around it and none of the Office 365 editing features.Course Maintenance:Course
maintenance will depend on if a Office 365 file is linked to or
duplicated. If the file is linked to then on restore that same file will
be used by a new course and all maintenance can be done in Office 365.
If the file is duplicated then the version of the file that was used may
need to be updated in future courses. Teachers will need to consider
whether the file should exist at a point in time (duplicating the files
in Moodle) or if they want to make sure all courses have the most upto
date version of the file (linking to the file).
The documentation covers
adding a file from OneDrive as well as uploading a file from your
desktop to OneDrive for use. It is adequate for what the features does.
OneDrive repository is used for adding content anywhere in Moodle where
the file picker appears from Office 365. It is useful for attaching any
file type that Microsoft Office 365 supports. The ability to link or
duplicate files also provides users with various options for long term
support of content. The files can also be used as teaching tools or
content as well as assignment submissions or attachment to forum posts.
