This year, we will be using the application called Dropbox to save all files for the collaborative novel, All Flights Cancelled. The Dropbox Presentation which was given by Jennie at the final meeting before the summer break, has been uploaded here for those wishing to participate. (Click on the title above).

The presentation covers a brief description of what Dropbox is, how to install the app onto your device, how to upload a file, how to share a file, how to send a link to an individual member and how to make a comment in a document. 

Please feel free to print your own copy and use it as a guide on the basics of using the app.  Dropbox has many other uses and tools, but for our project it is only necessary to get familiar with the basics.
