In a typical high school a student has access to a teacher 40 minutes per day. That means she has access to that teacher 5% of her waking day, and even that time is shared with 25 classmates. She has access to the Internet 100% of the time. That's 20X better.

The File picker has a nicer looking interface that allows users to browse through files in different views and check the details of the files hosted in each repository.
