Two   Options: Look to the Clouds or Ashford Student Playbook

Option 1: Look to the Clouds

In the “Saving and Organizing   Information” discussion, several options for organizing information were   explored. One of those options was the cloud. This is a new and very viable   option for saving information so that it is accessible anywhere. In this discussion,   you will examine this storage option further as a possible method of   organizing information.

  • Share your thoughts on the        two cloud storage services you selected, including which one you prefer        and why.
  • Based on your needs and        situation, share the advantages and/or disadvantages you see to saving        your research in the cloud, as opposed to the other methods discussed in        the Description: https://bridgepoint.equella.ecollege.com/curriculum/file/dd355181-8ff7-40ef-9ed9-0a81f0a483bc/1/HelpNowDocument.pngTools and Tips for        Saving and Organizing Research        handout.
  • Then, thinking back to the        story of Gina you read about in the “Saving and Organizing Information”        discussion, what might she have done differently to achieve a better        outcome?

To maximize the opportunity for   vigorous discussion, you must post to this discussion on at least three   separate days of the week, and your posts must total at least 600 words as   you address the questions noted above. Your first post must be completed by   Day 3 (Thursday), and the remainder of your posts must be completed by Day 7   (Monday). You must answer all aspects of the prompt at some point during the   week.

Respond to Peers:As your reply to your classmates, extend the conversation   by examining their claims or arguments in more depth or by responding to the   posts that they make to you. Keep the discussion on target and try to analyze   things in as much detail as you can. For instance, you might consider sharing   your two cloud storage collections and comparing your choices with those of   your classmates. Also, share any additional advice your classmates might have   provided Gina.
