    Sharing Data - the Easy Way

    Back to Top

    So you have a SensorTag, or even a few SensorTags to go around. You have collected some data that you wish to share with others ("you" might be the teacher, or a student). Yes, you could use DropBox or email or any other web-based mechanism, but what if you just want to share locally - no web involved?

    In the SensorTag TI-Nspire document you will find something experimental - a QR Code page. Select a sensor (either from the menu or by clicking on the data or graph view to display it full screen). The data from that sensor will be converted to a QR Code (with thanks to Adrien Bertrand for his awesome Lua coding!) Now use any of the free QR Readers available for iPad or iPhone and have those you wish to share with take a shot of the code, converting it back to text. Copy and paste into an Nspire Calculator page and your students have now defined x and y lists from your data set. Easy!

    If online access is available (and if you are using iPads then this will generally be the case) then there is now an even easier way to share your data. Go to the menu, choose Data Capture > Copy current data to clipboard, and the data is now copied directly to the clipboard of your device (compressed and encoded). Go to your browser and paste into the browser entry line - your data set will be displayed ready for copying and pasting back into TI-Nspire as described above. This link may be easily shared with others in your class, at home or any where in the world, if desired!


    If you have a SensorTag and happen to be using the Chrome browser on a recent (mid-2012+) Mac, Android (M) or ChromeBook, then try it out right now! Just click the Connect button at the top of the page and see the TI SensorTag in action!
