Secure Cloud Storage
2-week course consisting of 2 Classes on Friday 7 & 14 June 2019 - 1 to 4 pm
If you're ready to take the plunge into storing your files, photos and more in the cloud but need help using one. This class could be for you. We will explain the four popular cloud storage available today: OneDrive, iCloud, Google Drive and Dropbox.
DROPBOX is a favourite in the cloud storage world because it's reliable, easy to use, and a breeze to set up. Your files live in the cloud and you can get to them at any time from Dropbox's website, desktop applications for Mac, Windows or the iOS and Android.
Google Drive is very easy to set up if you already have a Google Account. However, it is easy to get a Google account if you don't already have one. You will learn how to use Google Drive Cloud storage by uploading and downloading data, create folders and much more.
iCloud is Apple’s version of cloud storage. Like other cloud storage, you can use iCloud to access your photos, videos, documents, notes, contacts, and more. Use your Apple ID or create a new account to start using Apple services.
OneDrive is Microsoft’s version of cloud storage. It can do all that Google Drive, iCloud and Dropbox can do.
If you have a Google Account or Microsoft Account or an Apple ID you will automatically have access to some free data storage in the cloud. Dropbox is one of many generic cloud storages that is not affiliated with the three powerhouses in computing: Microsoft, Apple and Android. There is so much to cover. We will have two classes to explain all the important aspects of cloud storage so that you have a better understanding and may have the confidence to start using cloud storage after attending these classes.
Prerequisite: Have some understanding of cloud storage and want or need to use cloud storage. If you have an Apple computer, know your Apple ID and password. If you have a Microsoft computer, know your Microsoft Account and password. If you have an Android, know you Google Account and password.
