An Introduction to Dropbox

This video gives a brief introduction to Dropbox and the basics of using it.
The school has a Dropbox account for which I can give you the username and password if you need to upload or download files.

Please be aware of the Department Of Education guidelines on Cloud storage providers such as Dropbox which state:
Staff are advised that any form of public Cloud Storage,
must not be used to store corporate information, or any material relating
to the business of a school, including staff and student information.

If you don’t have your own Dropbox account and would like some help setting one up, leave a comment here or let me know.
