What is The Cloud? Technically speaking… • The cloud is the internet • A network of servers Today, we do all kinds of things “in the cloud.” If you’ve ever checked your email online, you’ve used the cloud. When you use the cloud, your computer communicates with a network of servers. Some of the servers are specialized for storage, while others use their computing power to run applications.
What Can You Do in the Cloud? CHECK YOUR EMAIL from any computer – as long as it has an internet connection. Your emails are stored on servers which are connected on the internet. COLLABORATE online. Easily create a document and send everyone the web address. Everyone in your group will be able to add to the document, and they can even edit it at the same time. STORE FILES in the cloud so you won’t have to worry about bringing them with you. As long as you have access to the internet, y our files are just a few clicks away. MAKE NOTES – using your computer or mobile device, your notes will always be up to date no matter which device you’re using.
