edredi: Creating Folders on the edredi tablet

There are a couple of methods on how to do this:

  1. You can create folders on the tablet using ES File Explorer
  2. Depending on the application you are using, you can create new folders through the application itself. Kingsoft Office would a good example of an application capable of creating new folders.

Creating Folders with ES File Explorer

NOTE: This method is only recommended if your students are older and are able to understand how to navigate through folders in a directory.

  1. Add ES File Explorer to your organization. Please see this article on how to select Learning Objects from the content store.
  2. Open ES File Explorer and tap on "Local" from the menu on your left.
  3. When the Local Menu rolls down, please tap on "sdcard" or "sdcard0".
  4. Click on the plus sign (+) at the bottom labeled "New" and tap on "Folder" and name it appropriately. 

This will create a folder directly on the sdcard or internal storage and can easily be found either through ES File Explorer, other applications, like Kingsoft Office or through a Folder Resource.

Creating a New Folder with Kingsoft Office

NOTE: This method is mainly recommended if your students are comfortable with navigating through folders in a directory.

  1. Open KingSoft Office and tap on the WPS icon in the top left corner to roll down your Options menu.
  2. Tap on an existing document on the screen. Any word document will do.
  3. Now click "Save As", and navigate to the directory you want to create a folder in. For this example, we will choose the sdcard.
  4. The path above will say something like "/mnt/sdcard/KingsoftOffice/file/" or "/storage/sdcard0/KingsoftOffice/file/".  This just means that you're in the Kingsoft Office folder that is on the "mounted" or internal sdcard. 
  5. Tap on the folder icon with the Up arrow until the path says "/mnt/sdcard/" or "/storage/sdcard0/". This means that you're now in the internal sdcard of your tablet.
  6. Now tap on the folder icon with the Plus sign (+). This will create a new folder in the sdcard.
  7. Name your new folder and you're done.


Now that the folder has been created, you can now find it easily in Kingsoft for saving, ES File Explorer or through a Folder Resource.
