A course about understanding features, file hosting services and the usage of Dropbox.
Dropbox is a cloud file hosting service. It offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software. It lets you bring your videos, photos, docs etc anywhere and share them easily.
In this course you will learn how to install and use Dropbox (add files, share files, create links & folders). You will learn some of the best practices for Dropbox. We are using free version of the Dropbox (version Basic), so you do not need to purchase any licence, when learning how to use Dropbox in this course. Dropbox Basic offers you 2 GB free cloud storage space. We will also take a look about paid version of Dropbox, so you can easily compare benefits between these licences.
This course is good introduction to the Dropbox. We do not deep dive to every feature of Dropbox, because I wanted to keep the course length short (30 minutes), for you to quickly lead you to learn the most important features.
Once you learn the basic features, you might get curious to explore more amazing features, which Dropbox has to offer. I’ll publish new courses where we will deep dive to those advanced features, like example Dropbox Paper. Join this introductory course now and stay tuned about my new Dropbox-courses! :)
