Dropbox Basics

Our next cloud technology webinar will be held on Tuesday, November 29th. This will be a 30-minute presentation featuring Dropbox Basics. Dropbox is widely used and provides many features to assist you with accessing and sharing your files as well as backing them up in case of problems with your hard drive. For faculty and students, Dropbox enables submission of assignments and projects while minimizing unnecessary emails. For staff Dropbox allows sharing of departmental or group documents and files. Files are seamlessly synced to insure all users have the most recent version. To register for this webinar, write cgu.learning@cgu.edu.
