ONLYOFFICE is a free open-source office suite distributed under GNU AGPL v3.0. It comprises web-based collaborative editors for text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations for integration with multiple cloud storage services like Nextcloud (for more details, refer to this tutorial), ownCloud, Seafile, Alfresco (for more details, refer to this tutorial), Plone, etc. or for integration into your own web solution.
Along with collaboration and productivity solutions, ONLYOFFICE editors can be connected with popular e-learning platforms such as Moodle, OpenOlat, Chamilo. These integrations allow teachers to share course materials, and students to write their research papers, essays, and reports right inside this service, without switching between multiple apps.
In this article, we will tell about the ONLYOFFICE integration with Moodle, an open-source learning platform that allows educators to build custom secure teaching environments on their network.
