My class and I would like to share files..help

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My class would like to get a website on the go where we would be able to share files. Kind of like a dropbox style. We tried dropbox.com but quickly ran out of space. Does anyone know how to make a website to do this? It doesn't have to be free.

Any help appreciated, FTW nt

There are lots of ways. One fairly easy way is to get a domain and hosting. Then setup FTP, and you are good to go.

How much space do you need/want?

You can probably get hosting for under $10 a month for quite a bit more space.

Go with a provider you like. There are many:

Godaddy
Mydomain
Network Solutions
Etc

What's wrong with google apps for education, office 365@edu, or md2l?
I don't think you or your students would be satisfied with ftp.

CuteFTP.

Edit: Wow, I remember when this program used to be free. It's a shame that greed ruins most things in life.

I'll sum it up for you real easy-like.

You and your class need a file server, basically, which each of you can upload to and download from. You can use something as simple as Megaupload, across different accounts.
