Uploading pics and vids from an iPad to Googledocs
1. Make sure all images and video clips can be viewed in Camera Roll on the iPad.
2. On the iPad, open the Google Drive App and log in
● Tap Get Started
● Enter FULL EMAIL ADDRESS as below
username@students.hempfieldsd.org (ex. 22smith@students.hempfieldsd.org)
● Enter password and tap Sign In
● At the Hempfield login screen, enter username (NOT full email address this time) and password
● Tap on the + sign in the upper right corner, then on Upload Photos or Videos
● Select Camera Roll, then choose the video (or image) to upload
● It will take a few minutes before the video can be viewed from within Googledocs. This is normal. To be safe, wait until you can view the video before signing out on the iPad
● Files will have a generic name. Rename them by tapping on the info (i) button to the right of the file
3. Log out of GoogleDrive as below
● Tap on the blue box with the person icon in it in the top left corner of the screen
● Tap on your name
● Tap on Manage button
● Tap on red REMOVE button
● Tap on Remove (this will NOT delete their Googledocs files, just their info from the iPad)
