File Storage

Here is the URL for the link that I posted. I have only just purchased a new computer, and I have not yet got around to putting all of my old files onto this one, so I don't actually have anything very interesting to share. The only other file I have on here (besides Uni stuff) was a recipe for a lemon cheesecake, so I thought I would share it :)
I think file storage would be an excellent idea for teachers to use in the classroom, and even amongst teachers. You could utilise it amongst teachers if you had some information that another teacher wanted, or there was a letter you wanted sent out to everyone, and instead of creating a large carbon footprint, you could just put it on the Internet and give everyone the website to get it from. This would be a great little tool to have access to.
Using it within the classroom would also be beneficial. If, for example, a student was absent for the week from class, instead of giving them a big pile of paper to catch up on, you could save it all to one document, and give them the URL to find it from. This would, yet again, impact on your carbon footprint, and simply make it a lot easier for the student to gain access to the information they require.
