What is the document pool?
The document pool is a taxonomy based document management which can be unlocked competence based. For example the resource management of learning material based on the teach competence can be built.
The document pool can be activated for all OpenOLAT users, also for learners.
The documents in the document pool are only available in the document pool and cannot be added into a course.
Further information can be found in the chapter Taxonomy.
The document pool can be added as a site in the main navigation on top.
In the tab "Document pool" the document pool can be activated. In the main navigation it becomes only visible if the corresponding site is activated.
Afterward the name shown for the WebDAV access can be defined here. Then a taxonomy must be chosen. The content of the taxonomy is defined in Modules → Taxonomy.
Additionally templates can be activated. The templates are shown in the document pool directly below the main navigation. There only system administrators can upload file. They are available for everybody, independent of the access rights in the document pool.
Here the rights of the single level types of the taxonomy can be defined. In order that a competence type appears it must have been created in Modules → Taxonomy in the tab level types.
Finally an info page can be designed. It appears on the top level of the document pool. It is recommended to add here a user manual for the usage of the document pool.
