In our latest Pepperdine University faculty speaker series event, Dr. David Smith, Dean of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Economics of the Graziadio School of Business and Management, discusses how he has fostered collaboration with online storage solutions. Dr. Smith was an IT Grant winner from 2012 and his grant proposal centered on cloud storage.
"In recent years, many consumers and organizations have enjoyed the benefits of cloud-based file management through services such as Box.com, Dropbox, SugarSync, Google Apps, Evernote and others. This presentation will demonstrate 'lessons learned' in migrating to a cloud file management system, and highlight important considerations for faculty. As we implement more online technologies in our program deliveries, it will be more important for Pepperdine to have robust file sharing, collaboration, and version-tracking capabilities within multiple devices."
