My Linked Folder: What kinds of files can I include?
A better question might be: What can’t I include? OneDrive allows you to share all types of content with your students.
- Want to teach a science lesson on photosynthesis? Take a walk around your backyard and record examples of spring blooms using your cell phone. Share the video in your OneDrive shared folder. Create a Word document to accompany the video and challenge students to record their observations.
- Rain, the birds chirping, lawn movers… Spring has arrived! Find ways to share audio in the .mp3 format using your cell phone voice recorder app that celebrate the season and challenge your students to differentiate between the sounds of winter and spring.
Here are some common formats that you can share in OneDrive to better connect with your students:
- Apple: Movie, Pages, Sketch
- Microsoft Office 365: Word, PowerPoint, Excel
- Audio/Video Media Files: BMP, HEVC, M4V, MOV, MP3, MP4, WMV, & many more
- Image Formats: GIF, HEIC, JPEG, JPG, JPE, PANO, PNG, TIF, TIFF, & many more
- Adobe: PDF files
- eBooks: ePub (can be created using Apple Pages)
