In my previous entry, I shared the Otixo approach (thanks, Mark!) to getting documents off your iPad. But that got me thinking about what would it take to set up your own WebDav server in your District so you’re not posting confidential documents off in the cloud (e.g. Dropbox, Box.net) and, in the case of Otixo (which makes it very easy to do this), having to upgrade to their paid service because they’re so awesome.
- We’re in our second year using ReaddleDocs, in conjunction with a secure WebDAV share for distributing the files.
- We use WebDav to interact with our network for saving files [from iPads] if needed.
- Some of the ways our students are creating with iPads – They go home with classes of students for eReading where the students annotate and take notes.They are used in science classes where students create and update “Blabs” via Blogger (science labs + Blogger). They are also used in science classes to input data via Google Spreadsheets and use spreadsheets as feedback forms. They are used in French, where students switch to the French keyboard to create slide presentations via the Keynote app. Student work created in the Pages and Keynote app is saved to the students network folder easily via webdav. And their work via computers can be uploaded to the iPad the same way.
