What is Google Drive?

Google Drive is integrated with Blackboard Mobile Learn, though it is not advertised in the app stores.

What is Google Drive?

Google Drive is a service (not created by or in any way affiliated with Blackboard) that allows you to store your files online and access them from any of your devices.  Because Google Drive already does an awesome job of making uploading and downloading files easy for students, we felt that utilizing Google Drive to expand Mobile Learn's file management system was a natural choice.

What does Google Drive cost?

You can choose to use Google Drive for free or purchase extra Google Drive storage.  We recommend users start with the free storage plan. It provides 15 GB of storage and that is plenty of space to work with Mobile Learn.

Do I have to use Google Drive?

You are not required to download Google Drive before you can use Mobile Learn. Users can still use their device's native upload mechanism. On iOS devices this means only photos and videos can be uploaded.

You can also use Dropbox if you would prefer.

If you need help with Google Drive, check out the Google Drive Help Center.
