Host and (Privately) Share Media with Google Drive

From iPad Apps for School by Richard Byrne, here’s a quick guide to a free and cool tool used in a way I hadn’t thought of. He’s using his Drive app (on an iPad) to upload a video. Check it out.

I use Google Drive — both on desktop and on my iPhone — all the time, but really only for text or data (my budget, or lackthereof). I didn’t think of it as a way to get large files from my device to desktop until I saw this video. I also like the potential educational use of private sharing. If your students had Google accounts, you could share videos recorded from a device to just those accounts, and not with a public service such as YouTube.
