One common use for these systems in teaching and learning is to post files for students to view or download. You can arrange items in folders by chapter, topic, or format — or create folders for project groups and others restricted to instructors. You can also collaborate with people at Notre Dame and elsewhere.
Google Drive has these additional features
- Notre Dame creates a Google Group for every class. You can give that group access to a Google Drive folder as a way to provide access to material.
- Google Drive File Stream provides direct access to files on a desktop
Sakai provides course file storage for instructors through the Resources tool. Files can be hidden from students altogether or released at a specific time.
