What is the difference in a link and a file?

Links: Can be opened with a simple click and lead to a website. Links can be shared by making sure the site is public to views and then simply copy/pasting the link.

Short cuts:

  • Copy = ctrl + c
  • Paste = ctrl + v


  • Google docs, web-based tools such as Tackk, Smore, Prezi, Emaze

Files: Documents that are saved to your device or a specific drive.


  • Microsoft Word, Power Point, PDF, mp4 vidoes etc.
