Capturing Student Work via Email to GoogleDrive or Evernote #edcampsa
For apps that won't allow you to copy from the Camera Roll--like AlbumFX Lite--you can have students email the product directly to Evernote, GoogleDrive via GoFileDrop Freemium, or--if you're not worried about FERPA issues--as DougPete points out in this comment, use dropittome to send it to Dropbox.
A quick overview of how to do this in Evernote, with slight modifications, appears below:
First, find your Evernote incoming email address. It’ll look something like[username].email@example.com. The address is located under Account Info in the desktop versions of Evernote, under Settings inEvernote Web, and in the Sync tab of Evernote for iPhone. We recommend adding this email address to your address book or contact list.
Next, try emailing something into Evernote. In the subject line of your email, write the title of the note as you want it to appear in your account. In the same subject line, add one or both of the following:
For example, Subject: Grandpa's Marbles Draft #1 @DigitalStoryDrafts #studentname
- Use @ for notebooks: Use an @ symbol followed by the name of your destination notebook
- Use # for tags: Use a # symbol followed by the tag or tags you wish to assign. You can have multiple tags just make sure each one starts with an #
This would create a note titled Grandpa's Marble Draft #1 in theDigitalStoryDrafts notebook, tagged with studentname.
Here's what the GoFileDrop Freemium looks like:
What You Will Need: A free account with GoFileDropFreemium, Evernote, and/or GoogleApps for Education Docs/Drive. I don't recommend Dropbox for school settings.
