Virtual School Tech Briefing: Student Edition : February 28th

One of the biggest tech challenges of online school has been finding a way for students to download or watch a video from class relatively quickly. As teachers we’ve used resources such as: watching from Canvas, downloading from Canvas, downloading from teams, sending Sharepoint links, uploading to Stream and some teachers have even found their way on to Bilibili 网络教学面临的最大技术挑战之一,是找到一种让学生在课堂上相对快速地下载或观看视频的方法。作为教师,我们使用的资源包括:将视频Canvas上下载、Teams上下载、发送Sharepoint链接、上传到Stream以及有部分教师甚至找到自己的途径去使用Bilibili

As we move further into online school we’re looking to create a seamless way for you to be able to reach these videos by syncing your classes ( in Teams ) with Onedrive 随着我们进一步深入网络教学,我们正在创造一个无缝的方式,让你可以用Onedrive让视频同步到你的Teams课堂上。


You and your teacher should sync your OneDrive and Teams to your computers. Then, when the teacher adds a file – like a video – to a Team channel, it will download automatically to your computers. And it’s easy! 你和你的老师同步你们的OnedriveTeams到你的电脑上。然后,当老师添加一个文件(例如一个视频)到Team channel时,它就会自动下载到你们的电脑上,并且很容易!


  • Install the OneDrive app from the Mac App Store. Open it and log in with your NCPA account. Mac应用程序商店安装OneDrive应用程序。打开它并登录到你的NCPA帐户。
  • For each Team channel you want to sync, click Files and then click Sync 对于要同步的每个 Team channel ,单击“Files(文件),然后单击Sync(同步)
  • That’s it! The Files will look to sync with OneDrive on your computer as long as  the app is open. 就是这样! 只要打开这个应用程序,这些文件就会与你电脑上的OneDrive同步。

Here is a “How – To” video from our Tech Solutions Team (TST): TST – Teams meets OneDrive  



Another advantage of syncing is that it means your files are safe in the cloud. So long as you save to your synced OneDrive or Team folders instead of your Mac’s Desktop or Documents folders, your files are safe from damage, loss and theft.  同步的另一个好处是,它意味着你的文件在云储存中是安全的。只要你把文件保存到同步的OneDriveTeam文件夹中,而不是Mac的桌面文件夹或文档文件夹,你的文件就不会被损坏、丢失或被盗。

I’ve seen a lot of students use OneDrive on their desktop for their personal files and it would be great to see you use this for your class files ( especially videos)  as well.  我看到很多学生在他们的电脑桌面上使用OneDrive来保存他们的个人文件,如果你也能在课堂文件(尤其是视频)中使用OneDrive,那就太好了。
