Technology Tid-Bit: Dropbox

I was able to attend the Utah Coalition for Educational Technology Conference this last weekend and learned several new tips and tricks for technology.  I thought that it might be a good idea to share a technology "Tid-Bit" every week with you.  Here's the first one, a flashback to a post I did last year.  I have two drop box accounts now, one for my work with Dilly Dabbles and one for everything else.  It has a few advantages over Google Drive:

  • You can save any file type.
  • It can be set up to be a folder right on your computer so you don't have to go online to access it. (It is a cloud service though and you can access it online from any other computer.)
  • Easily share entire folders with one or more people, or share your entire drive, if you so wish.

Check it out today and get started with your own account!

Here's the information from the previous post last year:

Dropbox - Secure backup, sync and sharing made easy.

Do you find yourself emailing documents back and forth or carrying a thumb drive with you wherever you go?  Do you get to school and realize you left the document you were working on at home or get home to work on something and realize the documents you needed are at school?  Well here's a great solution.  I've been using Dropbox now for over a year and I LOVE it!!  It is a web-based storage program and it is FREE!  You can download the program to your frequently used computers and once you save an item there, you can access it from any of the computers you have downloaded the software on.  OR you can log in online to and access your documents from any computer anywhere.  There is also a subscription option if you need more storage than the free option allows.  This has totally solved my problem of accessing documents and remembering to email them to myself or carry a thumb drive everywhere.  Click on any of the links to get started.  If you have questions, Dropbox has some great video tutorials to help you along.

Do you have a techie tip?  Feel free to share it in the comments or link up below.
