We’ve recently launched the beta version for File Sharing available for the web. This new feature in the italki message system is open to all teachers and paying students, allowing them to send documents to one another.
As a student, be sure to take advantage of File Sharing by sending documents to your teacher for some feedback. If you’re a teacher, perhaps sending handouts prior to your lesson can help build added credibility.
Be on the lookout for other new features in the near future!
With File Sharing, you can send documents stored on your computer or from your previously sent files. Files you sent will be visible once you click on “From previous files.”
You’ll also able to drag and drop files from your computer directly into the chat frame, like what’s shown in the screenshot below.
When you receive an image, you’re able to preview it, view in its original size, or download it on to your device.
You’ll be able to download files with the click of a button. Please note, files that are not downloaded within 7 days will expire.
