To Download or Not

You will be asked to download the application for Drop Box when you create your account.  However, it functions just fine without the download by using the address and just signing in.   It's your choice at home, but unnecessary at school.   


File Sharing on Drop Box

So, you're working on your homework at a friend's house, but you're not finished, and didn't bring a flashdrive to save it.  Or, you've done your homework, but your printer's out of ink.  What to do?  Try an online file sharing platform like Drop Box or Google Docs.

Both of these applications are available for free on the internet.  Your documents are saved on their servers.

Drop Box is a free online file sharing service, much like Google Docs.  Once you have created an account in Drop Box, you can save your documents in Drop Box and access them wherever you have the internet.  Drop Box is a little more accepting of various formats, so you can save images, documents, PowerPoint presentations, etc. 

You are also able to share your documents with others for them to view and/or edit.  So Drop Box can be another tool for you to work on group projects when all members have access to the internet.

Drop Box makes 2 GB of space available for each individual for free.
