500MB of free online storage!

Windows Live LogoWindows Live SkyDrive is now available in the UK. It is offering 500MB of online storage space for free, which can be divided up into a set of private folders, shared folders or public folders. You could use the shared folders for assignments that pupils could read from or maybe read/write to, if you don’t have a VLE yet.

Another advantage is that you can access your files from any PC with internet access, which could be useful for sending work between home and school. Although, I suppose it could also be a disadvantage – if you don’t watch it then those flash games and mp3s might make their way back into the classroom. 😦

You’ll need a Windows LiveID/Microsoft Passport for the service. Sign up here: http://skydrive.live.com/
