Sending and Receiving Files

Sending and Receiving Files

Overview

With LanSchool, teachers can send a folder full of files from the teacher's computer to one or more student computers. Then, once students have modified the files, teachers can collect them back on the teacher computer. Each students' files will be neatly organized into sub-folders.
Sending and receiving files is only support with Windows and macOS student devices.

  2. Select the drop-down arrow to the right of the "Files" button in the toolbar.
  3. Select the "Send Files..." option.
  4. Select a source folder on the teacher computer that contains the files you'd like to send.
  5. Select a destination folder on the student computer for the files to be copied into.
    1. Create a custom folder to specify the location directly
    2. -OR- Use a special folder such as the individual student's Desktop or My Documents location
  6. Click the "Send Now" button.


A folder called "LanSchool Files" will be created on each student machine in the destination folder selected. This folder will contain all of the files copied from the Teacher computer.

Collecting Files from Student Computers

  2. Select the drop-down arrow to the right of the "Files" button in the toolbar.
  3. Select the "Collect Files..." option.

    2. Using an asterisk (*) followed by a file extension will collect all files of that type (e.g. *.doc).
  6. Select a destination folder on the teacher computer for the collected files to be copied into.
  7. Click the "Collect" button.


A sub-folder for each student computer will be created in the destination folder on the teacher computer. Each folder will contain only the files collected from that single student.
