Hopper is a super easy way to get text, links, photos or files from your desktop computer to an iDevice. This would be a great way to get information to student iPads quickly and easily. Simply create an account with any email address, paste the desired data to your "bin" and then access your bin on any other computer or iDevice.
Here's how to get started:
1. Go to http://gethopper.com and create an account. For those of you using iPads in your classroom, use your iPad set's email address and create a password that you can give to your students.
2. Once you're logged in, either copy/paste or drag/drop text, links, files or pictures to your "bin".
3. Students then go to http://gethopper.com and login to the class account. Students will see any text or files that you have pasted in your bin and can access or save them to their device.
