Google Drive Integration

Uploading content from Google Drive behaves differently depending on the type of file:

  • native google files:
  • mashme-convertible files:
    • A link to that file is created in the room
    • When the participant opens it:
      • The link opens the corresponding Drive File 
    • Is there a limit on the Size of the File?
      • No, there is not, as the file in room is actually just a link to the one in Drive
    • What happens when the file in Drive is deleted?
      • The file will remain in the room; but if trying to open it, a message informs that the file is no longer accessible
    • What happens when the file in the room is deleted?
      • The file will remain in Drive; but the student won't have a way of accessing it from the room
  • non-native google files (and hence also non-mashme-convertible files):
  • non-convertible files:
    • The file is copied directly to the room
    • When the participant opens it:
      • The file is directly downloaded to their device
    • Is there a limit on the Size of the File?
      • Yes, there is the usual upload limit (200MB, to be increased)
    • What happens when the file in Drive is deleted?
      • The file will remain in the room
    • What happens when the file in the room is deleted?
      • The file will remain in Drive

While uploading different types of files at the same time, each one will behave as stated above.

There is a limit on multiple-files upload: up to 15 files at once.

Remember that only user-owned files can be uploaded.
