eBackpack in 7 Days

Master eBackpack in One Week!

eBackpack Day 3

Upload Files

You can easily share files of all different types with your students. If you are sharing a document that your students will need to write on, it is recommended that you save that document as a PDF. PDF's don't seem to lose their formatting when students move them to Notability.


If you are uploading a video, keep in mind that the file has to be 50 MB or smaller. If your video file is larger, look at bit.ly/shrinkmyvideo.

Connect eBackpack with Google Drive

eBackpack allows you to connect directly to Google Drive. This makes uploading files that you have saved in Google Drive very easy.
