Foldr for Education

Simple. Safe. Secure.

Foldr – the perfect companion to mobile device deployments for schools, colleges and universities

What is Foldr?

Foldr turns existing servers into on-premise cloud storage – in a simple, safe and secure way. It offers a solution to the problem of saving student work in a central location when using mobile devices.

For example, perhaps you’ve recently adopted mobile technology and don’t know how to access work already created on desktop PCs? You could get into complex systems such as remote desk tops or cloud storage (but there’s always a concern around data protection), or, you could simply access your work on your mobile device or from home. This is where Foldr comes in.


Foldr uses your existing user account to provide access to your home folder and shared drives. Because it’s a cross platform solution, Foldr provides simple, safe and secure file access from any device.

Why choose Foldr for education?

Simplify presentation

Foldr presents all your work in one place, so for example, even if you have work saved on a school server and in the cloud, you can view it all easily and conveniently in one location with Foldr.

Organise your work

Foldr will organise your work for you. Share work on legacy systems that your establishment has already invested in and let Foldr organise the work for you and arrange assignments by class.

Use of different devices

Foldr can help manage different devices – it doesn’t matter if you’re talking about iOS, Android or web, Foldr will give you access which is available on and off campus.

Dynamic feedback

Teachers can write, draw and feedback directly on to students’ work with Foldr. Staff can even record voice notes to explain more complicated concepts!
