If you don't have access to your Moodle directory (like most people using hosted Moodle installations) you can install the edu-sharing plugins for Moodle from the official Moodle plugin repository.

For the full edu-sharing experience we suggest you install all edu-sharing plugins.

  • The edu-sharing activity plugin has to be installed since the other plugins rely on it. It adds a new option to the activities/resource menu. Using the edu-sharing resource allows you to either pick content from the repository or upload it to a folder of the repository.
  • The edu-sharing editor plugin adds the option to embed all kinds of edu-sharing content to all WYSIWYG fields.
  • The edu-sharing filter displays edu-sharing content embedded in WYSIWYG fields using the editor plugin.

  • The edu-sharing workspace block adds a button taking you to the edu-sharing workspace and the edu-sharing search engine.
