- Cloud Storage: An Overview, Tuesday, Feb. 10 from 7-8 p.m.
We hear about "the cloud" all the time. One of the ways the cloud works is by storing our files on the Internet. But exactly what is cloud storage? How does it work? How do I use it? In this course, we aim to answer these questions. We review the basic mechanics of cloud storage as well as the most popular cloud storage tools: Dropbox, Apple's iCloud, Google Drive and Microsoft's SkyDrive.
