    Dear,
    1- ref. to the students files, if it is word, excel or PDF, the easiest way to move them to your iPad is to configure your e-mail account in the iPad then send them by mail to yourself.
    2- iCloud: this is a new future from apple which allow you to backup your iPad data such as the contacts, calendar, mail.... etc. also you could access your data via the Internet by using the www.icloud.com. You could find the data which you backed up there and you could use them from there, for example if you forget your iPad want to review your calendar or if you need the contact details of someone your could rich them in this site after you logged in via your username and password. Also there is a good thing there, which called find my friend, and find my iPhone, if you lose your idevice you could find its location also you could find your friend location. (You could not use the iCloud unless you have iOS 5)

    For files on a USB key, you're out of luck. But put your stuff in a Box.net/Dropbox account, and you'll have access to them

    Cannot help with WhiteBoard...

    iCloud is a service integrated into all iOS devices running iOS 5. All your devices can be sync using that service. Let's say for example that you have a book in iBook on your iPhone, that book will be automatically transferred to your iPad even synching the page you are currently reading. There is a lot of features using iCloud so reading on Apple's website will explain everything... Basically, iCloud is saving/synching your data across your iOS 5 devices. Of course, you can configure everything to save/sync only stuff you want.

    Flash is a sensitive subject in this forum. Use the search button as questions have been answered many times already...
