We decided in our Glasgow meeting to use Dropbox to share documents. Dropbox is a cloud service were we all can put our files to share with each other. You can reach Dropbox online, but the nice thing is, when you have a free account to Dropbox you download a Dropbox folder on your computer. In this folder you can put all the files you want ti share and you find there all the files others want to share with you. This folder will synchronize with the online Dropbox folder automatically so you will be in sync all the time. It will become an ordinary folder on your hard drive, which you can use. So you don’t have to go online to Dropbox, but just use the Dropbox folder on your computer.
To install Dropbox, if you dont have an account yet, please use this link http://db.tt/I9XnHlo It takes you to Dropbox, helps you to start your free Dropbox account and lets you install Dropbox to your computer. If you do it like this I get some extra space in my Dropbox, and I use my own private Dropbox space for IDEC.
To get the most out of Dropbox, you’ll want to install Dropbox on all of your computers and mobile devices. Once it’s installed, you’ll see a Dropbox folder on your hard drive. Put your stuff in your Dropbox folder and it will automatically upload for availability on all of your computers, phones, and tablets. It’s called syncing, and it’ll revolutionize the way you use computers.
For more about how Dropbox works, check out the tour pages. The basic help for setting up and using Dropbox you can find on the Help Basics. More help and more detailed information you can find here: Help files for Dropbox. If you need more help, let me know.
The chair will decide which documents will be in that folder. So please ask him or her before putting texts in this folder. A small step for you, but a huge step for the digital life of IDEC 😉
