Reach For The Cloud

16 May

Hi Everyone,

Rob here on board the Eurodam as we make our way up North to the Baltic.

One of our most popular classes at the moment is the “Introduction to Cloud”, discussing a fantastic way of storing and sharing your files from literally anywhere in the world!  Here we have SkyDrive, Microsoft’s complimentary cloud service.

Now for those of you who haven’t yet heard of Microsoft’s Skydrive this it how it works:

Get yourself a Windows Live ID, simply go to http://www.WLonHAL.com, enter a few details and you are good to go!

After getting your ID go to http://www.skydrive.com, log in with your information and from then on you are free to store, access and share any information you want from any computer in the world.  Yep, this means you are not bound to your own PC, you can access your own personal SkyDrive from your friends PC, Smart Phone, Tablet and even a Mac! It’s just like having your own personal online hard drive.

Now to make SkyDrive even more accessible Microsoft have a variety of Apps for all your different devices.  Visit https://apps.live.com/skydrive to see what’s on offer.

Try the “SkyDrive for Windows” application to quickly and easily add files and documents to your SkyDrive straight from your desktop, it also automatically syncs up your files so if you make changes to your Word files it directly backs up online.

Also make use of the great Office Web Apps which allow you to not only create but edit certain office documents online also, just in case you need to make some last minute changes and don’t have a PC with Office installed.

So if you don’t have your own SkyDrive sign up right away and and get the most out of Cloud!

Safe travels,

Rob
