The tech talk for September 2 will be a discussion of using college servers to share files with students in the labs. We can both distribute files to the students and have them drop off files for the instructor on both Macs and PCs pretty easily. This facility has been used to share tests, sample news stories for editing, photos and video clips in a fast and safe way. Location: Scripps Convergence Lab Theater
