WeTransfer - Transfer Files Quickly & Easily

There are lots of ways to transfer files that are too big for many email services. Many of the alternatives to emailing files require that the sender and recipient have accounts on the same service. WeTransfer is a file transfer tool that doesn't require either the sender or the recipient to register for an account. To transfer files with WeTransfer just click the "+" icon to add a file, enter your email address, and enter the recipient's email address. The recipient will receive a link to download the file. See how it works in the Tekzilla video below.

Have a file that you need to send to colleague or to a student, but is too big to attach to an email? If so, give Moonberri a try. Moonberri is a free service for  privately transferring files. To transfer a file upload it to your Moonberri account then set a password for accessing it. Give the link to the file and password to the person that you want to be able to download the file. Moonberri will store your files online for up to 30 days.

If you have students creating videos or large audio files often those files are too large to attach to a school-issued email account. In those situations a service like Moonberri could be a good tool for students to use to send their files to you.

I tried Just Beam It last fall. Since then the service has received some useful updates. The two most important updates are support for all modern browsers and support for multiple file uploads. If you upload multiple files, Just Beam It will zip them together on the fly for your convenience.

Bay Files - A Quick Way to Move Large Files

In my never-ending quest to reduce email inbox clutter, I like to try out various file transfer services. One that I recently tried with a colleague is Bay Files. Bay Files, like many similar services, allows you to upload a file for quick and easy sharing. When you upload a file to Bay Files, Bay Files generates a series of download links that you can give to the people you want to access your files. So instead of sending an email with a big file attachment you can just direct people to the download link associated with your file. You can use Bay Files without registering, but if you do choose to register you can share larger files than can unregistered users.
