@jocelyn: And another one. This one is a bit complicated and would require some quick action. And here is why:
The Covid-19 disease has revealed that schools in Germany are not really fit for digital learning and online teaching. There are some projects but with the massive number of students that needs to be served online during lockdowns, the current learning platforms cannot keep up with. So this sector currently receives massive public attention and there is a desperate search for solutions and transformation under way.
As already explained in a different posting, in Germany we are not really happy to use US-based solutions like Whatsapp or Office 365 or Teams for schools especially with minors involved. Mainly due to privacy concerns (Cloud Act).
Therefore Germany in particular is looking for solutions that protect data and privacy and also being hopefully Open Source. A solution that is already used by some of our federal states (in Germany all school matters are under the sole responsibility of the federal states) is the learning management platform Moodle.
One part of e-learning is to make files available to students in virtual class rooms for downloading or streaming. So no wonder there is already Amazon S3 connectors/plugins available:
Our education state departments offer huge media libraries that can be used by schools for education purposes. This ranges from online courses to TV productions or even movies. These get integrated into Moodle. Here is an example of how this looks like. Sorry it is only available in German: https://www.mebis.bayern.de/infoportal/lernplattform/lernplattform-schnelleinstieg/
According to them, the “mebis” platform is the largest Moodle instance in Germany with around 800.000 users.
So you know what I am going to suggest: If Storj would develop a S3 Tardigrade connector for Moodle, it could generally attract Moodle users as new customers worldwide for using Tardigrade as storage backend for files.
Additionally for the German market it could mean that Storj could then approach directly the state departments with their huge media libraries for schools and offer them the Tardigrade storage solution for storage and distribution also.
I know @stefanbenten was active with the transfer.sh-Tardigrade development. Maybe he can assess how much it would take to get such a connector for Moodle up an running.
