If a dictionary definition doesn’t cut it for you, this class will! Get up and running on your own clouds: Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, OneDrive and more. This class will explain what cloud computing is and how it works and will even get you started with your own accounts! Use online apps (which are free) to create and store documents, spreadsheets and presentations without having to buy expensive software for your computer. Then access them from other computers, tablets, pads and phones that have Internet connections. We’ll even look at collaborating and sharing files and answering your questions.
Students must have basic computing skills, which include opening and closing programs, creating, saving and opening documents, and using a mouse.
