Share pictures with Picasa Web

  • If you do any projects with students that required the sharing of photos, consider using Picasa Web. Teacher dashboard has already created shared albums in the student's Picasa Web. The student can upload photos and put them in the appropriate shared folder and then you will see the pictures here in TD. Contact us for more help if you want to use this.
