    Google just introduced the Chromebook, a netbook that is tailored for classroom use.  The idea is that with all basic programs and files in the clouds, Chromebook can be turned on or “woken up” from sleep mode in seconds. Open Chromebook when you need it, and close it whenever you want to move on. This […]

      I’m interested to see how well this does. I think things like it are definitely the future, but I wonder how it will do now that tablets & mobiles are gaining in popularity so quickly. Either way, the idea is the same – to have a lean, fast-starting device that relies mainly on online storage as well as apps or programs online.

      The cloud has really simplified things for me. I’ve done group assignments in real-time using Google docs, I share a dropbox with my adviser for work I do for him, and I will be able to access journal articles I download from classes on any device. This is huge for me.

      Although I’m kind-of breaking the rules here in that this is the fourth area I’m commenting on, I just wanted to chime in that online files have proved an easy solution for me in school and in this program.

Some programs also make collaboration possible, if needed, whether it be synchronously, asynchronously, or both.

      “Files in the cloud” has made my life easier. This technology has offered me efficient and safe ways for moving, sharing and backing up my files. I can put away my jump drive and stop emailing myself.

      I have found “Files in the cloud” to a convenient way receiving assignments from students. I think it has potential to provide interactions between educators from different institutions across Jamaica since they will offers educators with more efficient and safe ways for sharing and storing up my files.
