Enhance collaboration by providing shared folders to your students automatically. No need to collect Dropbox or ownCloud e-mail addresses anymore: Just add it to a course and select the groups that should collaborate. ownCloud will privately share one folder per group to its members!
The teacher chooses a name for the instance which is displayed in the course context. Furthermore, the teacher can decide whether he has access to the collaborative folder(s). At last, the teacher can choose, whether or not he wants to activate the group mode for the concerning instance. Activation of the group mode leads to the creation of separate group folders in ownCloud/Nextcloud, each shared privately.
The folders are created in ownCloud, owned by a neutral Moodle-specific ownCloud user that has to be created by an ownCloud admin.
