Embed Videos with Google Drive- A Useful Tip for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Libraries Evolve | Scoop.it

 If for any reasons you do not want to upload your classroom videos to YouTube and are looking for another free hosting video that can allow you to upload and share your videos Google Drive is one of your best options. Only few Google Drive users know that there is a functionality in Google Drive that enables anyone with a Google Drive account to instantly upload their videos and after the upload you can get an embed code to integrate your video anywhere on the web. Here is how you can do it.

How To Use Google Drive and Evernote To Create Digital Portfolios

How To Use Google Drive and Evernote To Create Digital Portfolios | School Libraries Evolve | Scoop.it

Greg Kulowiec & Beth Holland:


With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, it is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on iPad. Everything that is created by a student can be uploaded directly to their Google Drive account and into a “Portfolio” folder that can then be shared with any one of their teachers.
