Students are on the move. From kids to adults, they are traveling back and forth between their homes and schools and local colleges and universities. They all tend to speak the same language. They work in a group, being organized, preparing papers and homework. But, how will they all organize their documents? How will they work in groups and then share their documents? They should consider cloud computing.
Cloud Computing and Students Homework
Students will likely send their papers and homework to each other through email addresses instead of synching the documents in the cloud. But, you do not want everyone looking at your personal email folder while you are waiting for your paper to download.
Another common practice of students these days is working with a USB stick or device. But, if you have to save your presentation with 10 or higher resolution pictures, chances are your USB stick will crash before everything is saved.
Cloud Computing and Groups
Yet another common practice among students is the need to work in group and to be able to share documents. They tend to use an email address to send a lot of messages with huge attachments. Now, if you are working offline and you need to see a document another student has, well, you are up a creek.
Think about this instead, if you place your files in the cloud, you will be able to work on them whenever and wherever you want. And, if you synchronize them, the others in your group will get the latest version of your document.
So, students should not use the traditional email address to work on documents for school. Instead, choosing a cloud computing service, the students will all have the same document and be able to work on it simultaneously. If you give the cloud a chance, you will be surprised about the possibilities and how much work can get done. You will find yourself worrying a lot less too.
