ClassCloud – Using Hand In and Hand Out

LearnPad ClassCloud is secure cloud storage which is used in conjunction with LearnPad InClass features (Hand In and Hand Out).

Hand In is a feature of LearnPad InClass that allows students to submit their work (such as documents or photographs) to the teacher. The teacher can easily view, edit, save, print or send back the documents from within the LearnPad portal.

Hand Out is a feature of LearnPad InClass that allows teachers to send documents to either an individual or a group of LearnPads (such as a marked copy of a student’s work or an exam paper).

ClassCloud chronologically archives students work and allows each school to store up to 2GB of student documents free of charge. Additional storage can be purchased if required.

To hand in work:

  1. Locate the document that you wish to send (hand in).

When sending files to neighbouring devices, all devices available within the school are displayed by default. If devices have been assigned to a place however, they will only be able to send to devices within that place. This makes it easy for teachers to ensure that pupils can only send to devices within the same class, for example.

Sending work to a neighbouring device using the LearnPad file browser:

  1. Locate the document that you wish to send to a neighbour device.
  2. Touch and hold on the document name until the file management toolbar appears. Choose ClassCloud.
