Semester 2 2015 has seen the deprecation of Moodle's Media Collection 'Standard Mode'. The Media Collection is now fully integrated with theBox.
The Media Collection activity, collections and galleries are created within theBox and all files are uploaded and stored into theBox. Advantages include:
- Videos are transcoded so that they are optimised for the web, and can playback in HTML 5 compliant browsers without additional plugins
- The 200MB Moodle file size limit not imposed since the file is being uploaded to theBox rather than being stored in Moodle
- Files that are uploaded into theBox do not affect the course's file quota, and thus will not result in course roll over issues.
- Files within theBox can be easily shared with other courses and activities in Moodle
