January 12: Cloud Computing
Are you confused by all the different cloud-based services? This class will help you understand how using the cloud will benefit you! We will begin with a short review of the Cloud Services offered and how they have changed in the last year or so. It is a great advantage to use iCloud for syncing data, storing data, and moving files easily between devices using iCloud Drive. We want to understand the differences between each of these functions. We will review the questions each of us should ask and know the answers to when thinking about storage. We will have time to explore the other Cloud services offered by DropBox, Microsoft, Google and Amazon and see how they differ. Other apps that use the cloud will be reviewed and demonstrated. You should bring your own devices, have downloaded the cloud apps that are of interest to you and have your questions to get answered if I can!

We will also explain the new Apple app called CLIPS and why one would want to use it. You should bring your own device, as well as your own video clips, music and stills to incorporate.
