Moving From Google Drive to OneDrive

In response to yesterday's post about moving files from one Google account to another, this morning I woke up to three emails from readers wondering about moving out of a Google (G Suite) environment and into a Microsoft environment. Fortunately, Google Takeout makes it relatively easy to move the contents of your Google Drive into Microsoft OneDrive. That process is demonstrated in my video that is embedded below.

Digitize Your Whiteboard and Paper Notes With OneDrive

From Evernote to Google Drive to CamScanner there are plenty of mobile apps that you can use to snap a picture of a whiteboard or paper note and have that turned into a PDF. Now Microsoft is trying to get into the same game with the latest beta version of OneDrive for Android.

In the latest beta version of the OneDrive Android app you can open the app, tap scan, and digitize any physical note. The note will be saved as a PDF in your OneDrive account.

Applications for Education
If you or your students are already using OneDrive then you will probably appreciate this new feature as it will make it easy to save sketches and notes. If you're not already using OneDrive, this is not a reason to switch to it because there are other apps that do the same thing.

Versal is service that you can use to create online classes that are bit more robust than your average flipped lessons. On Versal you can build online courses that incorporate text documents, images, videos, maps, slideshows, and more. When you build a course in Versal you build it lesson-by-lesson in an easy-to-follow outline. In the video embedded below I provide a demonstration of how to get started building your first course on Versal.

Google Docs users can embed content from their Google Drive accounts into their Versal courses. Take a look at the process in the video below.

Microsoft OneDrive users can embed content into Versal courses too. The video embedded below will show you how.
