Knowing where you save will help you open lessons at a later date.  If you do not save to the network, your work will be lost when your computer is cleared over the summer.  With all of this new technology, it will be much easier for us to utilize if we can share our lessons  You must save in a place where others can access your lessons.  You want to be able to find other people’s lessons to use.
