Using Dropbox as an Educator
Dropbox is just one of many online file storage services. The benefit of storing your files online is that you never need to carry a thumb drive, you don't have to email anything to yourself, and you can go back to an older version of any file you save. Also, many mobile devices have apps that allow you to sync your dropbox account so that you always have your files with you.
Overview of Online File Storage
Sometimes called "the cloud," storing files online is becoming more and more popular. If done right, it is safe, secure, and convenient. There are many sites that allow you a small amount of free online storage. There are also several sites that charge a monthly or yearly fee for storage space.
*This list is just a sample of the sites that will store your files online. We like Dropbox because it is easy to use, has great extra features (sharing, history, and many others), and connects to dozens of apps for your mobile device.
