Video: Sharing content through Dropbox

Dropbox is a powerful application for you and your students to share documents and projects with each other. As you can see, we've already logged in to Dropbox as the teacher for our Design Course 105. So let's upload the course docs by selecting the Upload button. Select Choose Files, then through your directory, find the files you want to upload. We're going to upload our course documents.

Sharing content through Dropbox

Dropbox is a powerful application for you and your students to share documents and projects with each other. As you can see, we've already logged in to Dropbox as the teacher for our Design Course 105. So let's upload the course docs by selecting the Upload button. Select Choose Files, then through your directory, find the files you want to upload. We're going to upload our course documents.

As soon as they're uploaded, they'll turn green, select the Done button. Now we have them just loose in our Dropbox account. Let's create a folder. Let's select the New Folder button. We'll give it a name. The same name as our wiki space, Design 105 Spring 13. Now we can just simply drag the two documents into the folder. To share the folder, select the bar not the name. Then select Share Link.

In the browser URL, copy the URL. Let's go to our wiki space. And copy and paste that URL into our home page. Select the Edit button. Let's put our I-beam below the two course docks. And let's type Dropbox Folder with the class name. Hit the Return key. And paste.

Now you will need to select the entire URL, go up to the Link button, select Web Address, choose New Window, and copy and paste the address into the Address text box. Now select Add Link. Save, and let's test the link before we leave. So now you've set up a class box. Let's create a folder that the students can upload their projects to. We go back to our main Dropbox window.

Create a folder. And we will call this one Design 105 SP 13 Projects. Let's select our newly created folder for projects, and now let's select Invite to Folder. Here, we can add the names or e-mails of our students. I usually write a short message, then select Share Folder.

Now you have a way to give your projects, your documents and photos to your students, as well as a way for them to send projects to you. Dropbox will be a powerful tool for you so you can connect and communicate and send course assignments back and forth either face to face or virtually.
