Easy iPad Dropbox Workflow for Teachers

A Step by Step iPad Dropbox Workflow for Teachers

No Student Dropbox Accounts Required.

A step by step guide to distributing, receiving, submitting and collecting files for teachers and students using iPads in education.

This iPad Dropbox workflow is one of the simplest for teachers and students to use. Teachers put files in an online folder created expressly for distributing files to their students. Teachers email a link to the students or post a link somewhere online for students to find that online folder. Students can view and download the files in the folder. Students use one special email to send their files to a separate online folder created expressly for receiving student file submissions that only the teacher can view.

Dropbox Bonus


Use this referral link to get 500MB of free bonus space when you join and install Dropbox on your computer. This space can come in handy for extra image and video storage.

We both get bonus space, though I already have multiple cloud storage accounts and plenty of free space. Once you sign up, you can get even more space, up to 16GB on your free account when you refer your friends. They will also get bonus space using your referral.

The requirement is that you need to install Dropbox on your computer in order to get the bonus space. That's normally how I use Dropbox at work and home. Files I put in my Dropbox folders at home are available on my work computer, my iPad, and vice versa. Dropbox keeps everything synchronized. Join Dropbox Here:
