Drop.io is a simple way to share/publish files for your students. I have used drop.io with my graduate students when I needed to share documents and some of the students had trouble getting them via their email accounts and it has always been a reliable tool, not mention “free”.

Drop.io has the following features (taken from the website):

  • Drop.io is an easy to use, online file sharing service that provides users with a simple and private way to share images, video, audio, documents and other digital content through unique, user-created and controlled sharing points called ‘drops.’
  • In just two clicks, users are able to seamlessly create personal sharing points, upload content via web, e-mail, MMS, Facebook, Firefox extension, phone and fax inputs and share it with friends, family and colleagues through drop.io’s various web, e-mail, MMS, twitter, iTunes and fax outputs.
  • Each ‘drop’ is non-searchable, non-networked, does not require any type of account registration and can be password-protected and set to expire after a period of time.
  • Drop.io is used by a wide range of users seeking a convenient and secure method for sharing all types of digital content, ranging from mothers sharing baby photos to large companies using ‘drops’ as collaborative workspaces.
