By now, you have probably heard of Box, Fuman’s cloud storage and collaboration tool available to all students, faculty, and staff.
It is clear that cloud storage and collaboration tools are going to be very present in the future of higher education and you could even say that Furman is ahead of the curve!
Box has been up at Furman for over a year and has contributed to our community in several ways. Box has helped reduce printing on campus and allows our community to access important documents on any of their devices.
In 7 Things You Should Know About Cloud Storage and Collaboration , EDUCAUSE goes into detail about how some institutions like Furman have implemented cloud services and with new opportunities arising, the future looks bright for Furman’s cloud.
How have your experiences with Furman’s cloud services been so far? ITS wants to know! Feel free to reach out to the IT Service Center and be sure to follow us on twitter for the latest ITS news!
