Two workshops on Box will be offered in November. Registration is not required.
Box is a cloud platform that helps users securely and easily store, share, and manage their files. Using the Box Web App, mobile apps, and Bob Sync and Box Edit desktop apps, users can access, edit, and share documents from anywhere and collaborate on projects. The University’s Box service, UA+Box, is provided to students, faculty, and staff at no cost with no storage limit.
