Peer-to-Peer Downloading

Optimizing content installations with Peer-to-Peer Downloading (Android Only)

One of the methods to get content onto a device faster than individual downloading is a Peer-to-Peer broadcast system where a device will download content from other nearby devices instead of the default download file server.

Make sure that all of the devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.

Here are the steps:

The "Sender(s)":

  • Install DynEd from the Google Play Store.
  • Start DynEd and sign in
  • Install all of the licensed courses
  • Tap info
  • Tap About DynEd...
  • DynEd will start sending out an "I have courses" message at regular intervals while the About DynEd window is open
  • The number of devices connected to this "Sender" will appear in the About DynEd window as "Serving # Clients"
  • If "Serving 0 Clients" appears, then no other devices are downloading from that device
  • Prepare all of the "Senders" first before activating the "Listeners"
The "Listeners":
  • Install DynEd from the Google Play Store.
  • Start DynEd and sign in
  • Tap any course to activate the "Sender"
  • If the "Sender" has the courses, a blue circle indicator will appear on the top right corner of the available courses
  • Tap the blue circle indicator for the course you want to download
  • Tap Download
  • Download each course. This should take around 15 minutes per course, depending on your speed and bandwidth.
  • You should see the "Serving # Clients" number increase on the "Sender" tablet
  • When all of the courses have been downloaded, the "Listener" tablet can become a "Sender" by opening the About DynEd window.
