Here’s a good definition of “cloud computing.”

In class we mentioned three sites - Dropbox, Google Docs and Office Live. All are free. Another very good service for MAC users is MobileMe - which is subscription-based.

In addition to allowing you to store files, Google Docs and Office Live allow you to create and edit using cloud-based software.

DropBox requires you to install an application on your computer(s).

You might want to look into these services as a method of backing-up the files you create in the lab. ALWAYS have two copies of any file you create in the lab.
