Using the GroupDocs HTML5 document viewer, you can seamlessly embed and display over 45 types of documents and images on any web-page within your Moodle website. Supported file formats include: PDF and Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets. PowerPoint presentations, Visio diagrams, OpenDocument formats, CSV, RTF, TXT, XPS files, CAD and raster images.

Please note that this module is based on the cloud API version of the GroupDocs.Viewer. It is easy to deploy as there is no need to install and maintain anything on your server. However, it requires documents to be hosted on GroupDocs servers. We use state-of-the-art Amazon EC2 infrastructure to provide complete security for your content.


1. GroupDocs HTML5 document viewer renders documents as real text files. This allows users to select and copy text to the clipboard right from documents embedded to a web-page. This also ensures fonts look sharp and the embedded documents look indistinguishable from the original files.

2. Documents embedded to a web-page with GroupDocs.Viewer can be viewed from any web-enabled device that has a HTML5-complient web-browser. Users don't have to install any plugins or software. You just embed a document to a web-page and it can be viewed by website visitors right away.

3. Thanks to the convenient UI, it is easy to navigate large multi-page documents in a browser. Users can view documents just like slides by turning pages with the click of a button. There are also options to search for text within documents, zoom in/out of a page, preview pages with thumbnails, print and download documents.


Please note: To use the viewer on your Moodle website, you need to register with GroupDocs first. We offer a free plan which will allow you to test the block before buying our service.

For detailed installation instructions please see this page.

    The compulsory English language file is missing from your plugin.

    Hello Daniel,

    The English language file is in the "groupdocs\lang\en" and "groupdocs\lang\en_utf8" folders.

    Best regards.
