Trying to set up an old Droid for a workshop

Hi Group --

I am giving a workshop in 2 weeks, and would like to use a Motorola Droid 1
for hands-on experience. I reset the phone to factory condition, then
transfered over the Collect APK, but can not figure out how to install it
without first putting on a file manager such as ES File Explorer. I don't
want to go through Google so-called Play b/c I do not want any personal
information on the device in case it is lost.

Is there some really obviouis way to do this that I am not seeing? Am I
choosing the whole wrong approach?

TIA

Jerry

You can use adb to install apks onto a phone. Need to enable USB
debugging on the phone.
