This support solution will walk you through setting up a Google Drive folder and how to upload video recordings to this folder.

This tutorial is split into two parts, the first will guide you through creating a Google Drive folder to store these recordings and the second will walk you through how to upload the recordings to this folder.

PART 1 - Creating Google Drive folder

*If you've already created a folder in Google Drive for your course, proceed to Part 2

Step 1: Visit

Step 2: In the top left corner, click + New then select the "Folder" option

Step 3: In the window that appears type the name of the folder (if this is for a specific course we recommend naming it something like LAW 102-1 Class Videos) and then click "Create"

You have successfully created the folder where you will be storing your recordings, continue to part two for instructions on how to upload recordings to this folder.

PART 2 - Uploading video recordings to Google Drive folder

Step 1: Visit

Step 2: Find the folder you created in Part 1 and double click to open it 

Step 3: To add files to the Google Drive folder you have two options

3A. With the Google Drive folder open simply find the recording file that has been saved to your computer (On your desktop, in your documents folder, etc.) and then drag and drop it into the Google Drive window, be sure to use a .MP4 file when uploading videos

Note: You can drag and drop multiple files at once

3B. In the top left corner select the "New" button and select the "File upload" option, this will launch a navigation window where you can locate the recording file on your computer, select it, and then choose the "Open" option to upload the recording to this Google Drive folder, 

be sure to use a .MP4 file when uploading videos

Note: You can select and upload multiple files at once

Step 4: To add additional recordings to this folder simply repeat step 3

Step 5 [Optional]: If you would like to secure your recordings within Google Drive to ensure those with viewer access can not download the file directly you can follow the steps in our Securing Recording File in Google Drive support solution 

At this point, you have successfully uploaded your recording(s) to Google Drive. You can now return to our Recording and posting course videos walkthrough for additional guidance.
