There are many stable and secure places on the cloud for you and your students to save class files. Cloud storage means no more lost homework! Unlike using a “thumb” drive, you can’t lose or damage your important files. You have access to your files anywhere with internet access (using a computer or mobile device). When collaborating with others, you can share folders and files with other people.
Sign up for a free account and keep all your current semester school files there. Cloud storage services typically offer a certain amount of free storage space (e.g. 5 GB). View this ZDNet article for a review of the top ten personal cloud storage services, including Amazon Cloud Drive, Apple iCloud, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and more! I use Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive!
Notes on student use: Google Drive is just an extension of Google Docs which UAA students already have access to! And Box.com allows your students to log in with their UAA Gmail credentials.
