This is a file converter plugin for Moodle The primary function of this plugin is to convert student submissions into the PDF file format, to allow teachers to use the annotate PDF functionality of Moodle.

This plugin uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) services to provide the conversion to PDF, the primary AWS services used are [Lambda](https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/) and [S3](https://aws.amazon.com/s3/). The plugin interfaces Moodle with the AWS services. Everything you need to setup both Moodle and AWS is included in this plugin.

The aims of this plugin are to:

  • Provide PDF conversion functionality that is efficient and reliable at scale.
  • Convert files to PDF in a cost effective manner.
  • Provide confidence in data privacy and data security throughout the conversion process.
  • Be straightforward to setup and use.
More information on the annotate PDF function of Moodle can be found: `https://docs.moodle.org/36/en/Using_Assignment#Annotating_submissions`

Potential privacy issues

Student assignment submissions ares sent to AWS API in order the file to be converted to an alternative format. The file is temporarily kept in an AWS S3 bucket and gets deleted after the conversion is done. No user information is stored in AWS after file conversion is complete and the file is downloaded to Moodle.
