Tired of sending files back and forth from home via email or copying files to a flashdrive?
Dropbox removes the middle man and lets you save your files in the Cloud. It couldn’t be easier, you create a free Dropbox account, upload your files, and then when you are at school, all you have to have is Internet access to retrieve your documents. Your files are password protected in Dropbox and it accepts all types of files: doc, docx, pdfs, wmv, jpgs, bmps, and ppts. Our school computers allow you upload your documents and download the documents, you don’t have to worry that our server or network will block your actions.
Just remember, if you can save a file to a flashdrive, you can save it to your Dropbox account. Dropbox also allows you to share folders with friends, which means that if you are collaborating on a project with a classmate, you both always have access to the document. Makes your life a lot easier, plus it eliminates the problems that arise when a project is due and the person that you are working with is absent from school.
Dropbox also has Apps so that you can sync your Dropbox account to your phone and to your home computer. If you want to use Dropbox at school, you do not have to download the program – you can just sign into the account. However, if you want to sync your home computer with your phone, you have to download the program to your home computer. Unfortunately, since our computers are networked, you cannot sync your home computer with your school accounts. Dropbox works on Macs, Windows, and Linux machines.
