What is the Cloud?


We talk about it, but what does it really look like? The cloud, simply, refers to software and services that run on the Internet instead of your computer. Apple iCloud, Dropbox, Netflix, Amazon Cloud Drive, Flickr, Google Drive, Microsoft Office 365, Yahoo Mail — those are all cloud services.

SkyDrive and Windows Live Mesh


We are trying out a PC feature of having a storage area in the clouds–SkyDrive, as well ,as remote access to our current school workstations with Live Mesh.  I prepared an instruction sheet for staff to follow.  Our District Tech Staff will assign any staff a SkyDrive account, install the software on their teacher workstation and then the staff can access their individual workstation at school with any PC (not Mac) offsite.  They will have access to all software on the machine, directories, and printers that they have access to at their desks.  This may save some time on our staff’s part rather than having to come to their classrooms to complete their class preparations and workload.  Instruction sheet is below:
