MediaFire - File storage

MediaFire is a File storage located on the web. It enables you to upload large files or photographs for storage rather than keeping them in your inbox or on your computer. This storage facility enables you to access them wherever you are on any computer as long as you have internet access. They also enable you to share your files either privately between selected clients/friends or publicly to anyone. They are also able to download your files.
I found this storage place a great place and believe it can be utilised in the classroom in many different ways. This file storage could be used for students either uploading homework or assignments or projects instead of emailing to teacher etc, or they can be in reverse, the Teacher could also have a file for students to work on from home, like homework or information they require to access for assignments or projects.
Lessons could be downloaded for those who are away on holidays or unable to get to school due to imobility or an inability to attend under special circumstances. Possibly a sharing of information gathered or outcomes between different schools and students across the world. The uses are endless.
I have included a URL for one of my files that I have uploaded on MediaFire, feel free to check it out, it is a Science project I did.

  1. Hi Wendy,
    You have outlined some great ways that this tool could be used by both teachers and students. The ability to change the security settings to make files public or private I feel is very important when used within an educational setting. I know that I will certainly be utilising this program in the future.
