With Knowledge Sharing Block one can separate a sub-tree of categories and courses as resource/activity storage for all the site. The first step is to select on the settings page the category that will act as root. After that, when one editing a course section, the Knowledge Sharing Block will show on the top-left side of the page showing all the resources/activities under that category. Those resources/activities can be organized in tree by the category/course flow or using tags that assigned to them. The desired resource/activity can be dragged to the section of the course and shared easily. 


This block will automatically add itself upon installation to the course-view page when in ediitng mode. The block will be on top of the other blocks on the left pane... It is done to make this block more easily accessible...

    Thanks for this Peter. Does it make a copy of the resource like the import functionality?

    @Jon Bolton, yes it duplicates the resource under the new position...
    One of my thoughts for future development is to make a link to the original, so when updated all instances update - but it needs time and research...

    @Luiggi, as much as I know Sharing Cart is private... My solution to share between all users a kind of knowledge base, managed by a few privileged but used by all...

    Hi Peter, ok great
    Like "common resources area" for teachers into the same course.
    I'll test it
    With sharing card just one teacher could copy_paste from course A to course B activities and resources.
    Thanks for your feedback

    @dave m,
    It is a tree of categories to any depth, than the courses in them, then the sections in them, then the resources in them...
    The actual display depends on the right one have to manage the content...

    Doesn't work in 3.10. Installation went well but drag and drop doesn't do anything in this Moodle version, so it's impossiblu to add activity or resource from the tree to the course.
