Shaing Lectures via a Shared Dropbox

LectureMonkey always made it easy  to share a course with everyone in your domain, or to send a “share” to users via their email.

It turns out that for some courses the attendees don’t all belong to a specific domain (or they don’t want to share it with the domain – conferences, schools without an official email address) and no one has a list of attendee email addresses.  To make it easy to share LectureMonkey lectures with the attendees we’ve implemented a new “shared Dropbox” capability.

Create a Dropbox account for the course (many professors\students do that anyway nowadays) and link the LectureMonkey recording to that Dropbox.

1. Go to settings

2. Unlink from Dropbox if you are already linked

3. Link to the course’s Dropbox account and record the lecture as usual (you can use the “Private” setting)

The lecture will be stored in the shared Dropbox.

Any user that wants to view the course lectures needs to:

1. Log in to LectureMonkey as usual.

2. Link their LectureMonkey account to the shared Dropbox account.

   2a. In the app use the settings screen in the left menu.

   2b. On the web – if you are already linked to a different Dropbox, just click “unlink” next to the Dropbox name that shows at the top of the lecture list and Dropbox will ask you to relink).

and the voila – you can see the course’s lectures.


About Jacob Ukelson

blog (mostly) about my work and technology. So far I have been lucky enough to have been working on things I consider fun and with really top notch people. I have worked in both large companies (IBM) and small companies (ActionBase, ConicIT, Dapper, eXeedTechnologies). eXeed was establish to remedy a failure of the VC model in Israel – most VCs were monetary investors, but most companies needed not just money – they needed operational and business guidance. That is what we provide at eXeed – not just an investment but also our time and skills as seasoned software executives. I have taken on various titles – CTO, VP Products, VP BizDev – but throughout my career a constant focus has been on technologymarket fit, aka customer development. Unique breakthrough technology is a start, but the product must solve real business problems. It needs to be something customers can understand, relate to and will want to buy. I have been doing this for 20 years for software products in companies both large and small.
