edredi: Saving Your Work

Students can save their work in a number of ways depending on the Resources they are running. Applications may include a save button or menu option, but you can also capture what is on the screen for later reference.

Easy access to files is available through the Tools Categories. See also printing and copying for related instructions.


Like all Android tablets, edredi has a built-in file system where data files can be stored. For historical reasons, the names used for the public file locations can be confusing, so all edredi functions use a common rational naming convention as follows:

  • Storage is the primary data storage location. For EdRedi it is 16GB of internal Flash memory.
  • SDCard is the removable Flash memory card that you can insert into the micro SD slot on the side of the device.
  • USB is any USB mass storage device, typically a pen or flash drive, that you insert into the micro USB port.

When referring to these drives in edredi functions such as folder Resources or file copy QrKeys, you can use the tokens <storage>, <sdcard>, and <usb>. 

When navigating to these drives from 3rd party applications, their names can vary confusingly. For instance, the storage drive is usually called sdcard despite not actually being a memory card or occasionally external despite being internal. On the edredi tablet, the three public drives can be found at /sdcard, /mnt/extsd, and /mnt/usbhost1 respectively. For example, if you would like to create a folder as a Resource so students could access their files from their edredi tablets, you would add the path as /sdcard/documents

If the application or webpage you are using does not have a save option, you can capture the current screen as a screenshot image by tapping the screenshot button [camera icon] on the Menu Bar at the bottom of the screen. The image will be saved in PNG format to the folder /sdcard/PIctures/Screenshots.    

If you don't see the camera icon, you need to enable the screenshot button under Settings. Once you are in Settings, (1) tap ScreenshotSetting and then (2) tap Show the screenshot button in the statusbar.

Note: They can only be completed under Teacher Mode. 


Some tablets may prevent the screen capture shortcut from the status bar, but you may provide an alternative mechanism. For instance, pressing the Volume- and Power buttons simultanteously. Consult your device instructions for more details.
