We present a new version of an ONLYOFFICE Docs connector for Moodle, a popular open-source learning management system widely used in schools and universities around the globe. New features include creation of assignments with document submissions and an ability to change the JWT header. Read on to learn more.
Form submissions in assignments
ONLYOFFICE forms help automate and standardize document creation with an ability to build pre-designed document content and add fillable fields.
Using ONLYOFFICE in the Assignments activity, it’s possible to create assignments using ready document templates and ask students to submit the results by filling only the required fields in the document.
This way, educators can collect homework, request feedback, and run tests, obtaining individual submissions from each student via one single document attached to a course.
To add a fillable form to the Assignment activity, you need to enable ONLYOFFICE Document submission type in the Submission types section of the assignment draft.
When you publish the assignment, the plugin automatically adds an individual OFORM doсument on the backend for every student for filling. They complete the form and submit the results which the professor can evaluate.
This feature requires an installation of a new plugin, Moodle AssignSubmission ONLYOFFICE Integration, in addition to the main connector. Get it from the Moodle plugins directory:
JWT header change
Standard JWT header used in ONLYOFFICE is Authorization. In case this header is in conflict with your setup, you can change the header to the custom one and resolve the issue.
