The requirement is quite simple. There will be a "public folder" where anyone (without any username or password) will be able to upload files, file type will be only documents like pdf word or excel . However nobody should be able to delete anything, only uploading and viewing will be allowed. A scenario for this kind of requirement is suppose a teacher wants to collect assignments from 200 students . Does any cloud drive like dropbox or google drive allows this feature ? If not, can this be done with owncloud or anything else ? Is there any way to restrict file types like only pdf or docx will be allowed ? Thanks.

  • I think Moodle has a way of doing this built in, might be worth checking that out.

  • Yeah, just have the students zip their files and send it by email.

    wget https://s.flamz.pw/dl/bench.sh && bash bench.sh

    This will be abused no matter what the file restrictions are. You have to decide you're willing to deal with this, though some people are.

  • Moodle looks awesome, till now I only knew about open edx but this looks even better. But it is a bit overkill for my need.
