How to enable Moodle's Google Docs Repository

Google Docs can serve both as a repository from which users can "pull" files they need into their Moodle course(s) and also as a portfolio into which Moodle users can "push" files they want to keep. All from within Moodle's HTML/TinyMCE editor 


To find out how to enable this functionality and how to use it in your Moodle course visit 

http://docs.moodle.org/20/en/Google_Docs_repository to discover how to pull files into your Moodle courses and visit  http://docs.moodle.org/20/en/Google_Docs_portfolio to learn how to "push" files into your schools Moodle server.

You can export (push) items such as Moodle assignments, Moodle chat and Moodle forum posts to enabled Moodle Google Docs portfolios. This is an excellent way of archiving these types activities.


NB: both options need to be enabled by your schools Moodle administrator before they are available to teachers and students. If you do not have access then ask for this functionality to be enabled.
