When I try to export from some applications on the iPad I have been emailing them to my laptop but it gives me share as WebDav (WEB based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) as an option. I didn’t know what WebDav was and how to get it.
This morning I sorted it.
Firstly I downloaded the app Box.Net which automatically gives me 50GB of on line storage if you sign up before the end of October- plenty of storage to be going on with.
I then logged in the Box.net on my laptop and created a folder to put my iOS files into. I called that folder iPadDocs.
Going back to my Pages document on my iPhone I clicked on the Spanner which took me to Share and Print.
Then I clicked on Copy to WebDav. I had to put in the Server address which was https://www.box.net/dav//iPadDocs . The iPadDocs part of the Server Address is the folder that I had made.
You can also put in the server address https://www.box.net/dav// and it will let you chose which folder to put your files in which would make it easier to file things but maybe make it trickier for little folk to decide where to put their files!!!
I entered my Box.net username and password. It then asked me which format I want the upload to be, I clicked COPY and away it went.
Once it uploaded you can download the files on other iOS devices and share folders with other users.
I hope you find this post useful in sorting a simple way to share docs between devices in your class.
I like that you don’t have to rely on aging school servers to share files and continue working on them.
Let me know how you get on.
