Short-term File Sharing — Torpedo

Short-term File Sharing — Torpedo | technologies | Scoop.it
Share files, passwords, and more with self-destructing private links. Torpedo is easy to use short-term file sharing.
John Dalziel's insight:

Share files, passwords, and more with self-destructing private links. Torpedo’s share links self-destruct as soon as your file is downloaded.

Drag any file to the menu bar. Choose 48 hours or one download. Torpedo will automatically copy a link to your clipboard that you can send to anyone you’d like. All they need is a web browser. Ideal for practitioners and/or learners.

5 Ways to Use Google Sites in Teaching & Learning

Although this post refers to "Schools" it is a post from the USA so therefore has a different meaning than we would use in the UK.

 

I particularly like the use of the new page-level permissions options, allowing learners to only edit Google Sites pages that practitioners grant them access to.

 

The 5 ways are...

- As a wiki:

- As a digital portfolio;

- As a digital file cabinet;

- As a blog;

- As a website.

 

All skills learners need in the "real world" - potential for use in functional skills especially as learners & practitioners have 24/7 access. 

 

Google docs are also ideal for peer assessment and review.

FileBuck.it - Home

FileBuck.it - Home | technologies | Scoop.it
Send large files for free. Share up to 4 GB per upload and 50 GB per day. Create a bucket and collaborate with others
John Dalziel's insight:

With FileBuck.it, practitioners and/or learners can upload 4 GB for free, so sending lots of small files or a few very large files is no longer a chore.
NOTE: It doesn't have to stop with one upload, users can send up to 50 GB a day, all at no cost.
By creating a File Bucket, users get a central location for them, their learners, colleagues and other stakeholders to share files.
