Start up Google Drive, then tap on the + symbol in the top right hand corner of your iPad screen:

Notice the USE CAMERA option in that ADD menu!

To begin recording video, tap on USE CAMERA and switch to Video camera…you can see the selector below:

After you’re done recording…tap on USE and you’ll be prompted as shown below:

When you’re done, you’ll see your Google Drive docs, and at the bottom, the video file you just created:

    Hmm…. I am unable to get this to work. I get to the use camera option. I see the choices of video and photo, but I am unable to choose video. Any ideas? Hoping to figure out an easy solution for Kindergartners recording evidence of learning.
