Question about Apps and Student Creations

Given this week’s topic I was wondering if anyone is this course has been using Ipads in their classrooms.   I am scheduled to receive a class set of Ipads at the end of this month from my district.   We will have them for two months.

My question concerns the fact that when students create a story, or other form of digital media on an app it saves to the Ipad.   You can share it to Facebook, Twitter and so on but I would prefer to create some for E-portfolios for my students.   I was thinking of creating individual student blogs where students could embed HTML codes of things they have created.   It just seems like such a shame that once the Ipads leave our classroom, their work disappears, unless we save it to somewhere else.

Has anyone else had to mitigate this problem?    If so, how did you do it?
