2479 - Introduction to Cloud Computing and Cloud Storage
The term "The Cloud" is omnipresent, but illusive. This course will demystify the cloud by providing an overview of cloud computing that includes terms and concepts, the technical components of cloud computing, cloud privacy and security, and examples of cloud-based applications. The course will then focus on cloud-based storage services like iCloud, Google Drive, and DropBox, and how to use them to securely save and access files from multiple devices or share them with others. Students will also learn techniques to backup and restore their own files. Students are encouraged to bring their laptop (Windows or Mac) or tablet (iOS or Android) to class. Hands-on practice will enhance class material when appropriate, using built-in apps or free downloads. Some predict the Cloud will be our future computer -you can be the judge of that by the end of the course. Lecture (plus Questions) Hands-On Activity
