  Enroll in Course

Dropbox is a great way to save your digital files and folders in the cloud so that you can access them from any of your internet enabled digital devices.

If you have never used Dropbox or have a Dropbox account but are unsure how to make the most of it, this course is here to help you.

In just under two hours total lesson time, we will teach you how to:

  • Create and setup a free Dropbox account.
  • Understand the layout of Dropbox.
  • Find and change the various settings available in Dropbox.
  • Add new files and folders to your Dropbox.
  • Upload existing files and folders from your computer to Dropbox.
  • Action files and folders in Dropbox.
  • View the contents of files in Dropbox.
  • Collaborate with others using Dropbox Paper.
  • Share your Dropbox files and folders with others.
  • Send large Dropbox files to others.
  • Get friends and colleagues to upload their files and folders to your Dropbox account.
  • Create Dropbox Paper documents.
  • Synchronise your Dropbox files and folders with Windows.

To help you remember the functionality from the video lessons, there are also downloadable step-by-step guides that you can use as memory aids.

This is the right course for you if any of these statements apply to you:

  • You have never used Dropbox before but want to start using it.
  • You have a Dropbox account but have never quite worked out how to make the best use of it.
  • You have a Dropbox account but are nervous about using it because it looks different and you don’t know where to start.
  • You are nervous about clicking on icons/links that you have never used before in case something goes wrong.
  • You feel overwhelmed when looking at the different sections/options that are displayed on the Dropbox home screen.

If any of these statements apply to you, this is probably not the course for you (but thanks for checking us out):

  • You have a Dropbox account and are confident on how to use it.
  • You have a Dropbox account, have synchronisation setup on your Windows PC and are using it regularly and with confidence.
