More info

Content can be accessed and shared from your computer or mobile device. Sharing control is granular, from read-only all the way to full control. Content can be made available for offline access

Practical uses include:

  • easy remote access to all your mission-critical files
  • maintain syllabus in Box with a link to Sakai so that as you update it for continuity it is automatically updated in Sakai
  • storage for recorded Zoom sessions
