YouTube – An Introduction. YouTube is a great educational resource once you understand some ground rules. YouTube gets billions of hits daily, with hundreds of hours of new content uploaded every minute. Searching through that deluge of videos can be more complicated than searching the entire web. This presentation will start with the basics and examine some tips and tricks for finding your goal.
Fun fact: In 2002, the YouTube deal was negotiated over a bowl of mozzarella sticks at Denny’s for $1.65M
Google Drive. What is it? What do I need to use it? How do I use it? Is it Cloud storage? Can I access it from all my devices? Dale will answer all these questions and more.
Fun fact: Google Drive was developed by Google and launched on April 24, 2012.
