Cloud computing is becoming more and more popular.
Basically Cloud Computing allows you to store your files, be they documents, photos, music or videos on the computer of service providers. These files can then be accessed through the Internet from PCs, Laptops, Tablets and smartphones. Files can also be shared with friends, family and other associates.
Some Cloud Computing services also allow you to create word processed documents, spreadsheets and presentations using software apps on the Web.
PCPS runs three short courses of 2 hours duration on these cloud services:
- DropBox – one of the most popular services offering 2 GB free storage
- Microsoft SkyDrive offers 7 GB of free storage and has web apps for word processing, spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations
- Google Drive (sometimes called G-Drive). Google offers 15 GB storage over all its products. It also has web apps for word processing, spreadsheets and presentations.
During each of these short courses you will learn how to sign up for the free services, upload and share files as well as using the wep apps.
