Two For Tuesday: 1-15-08

1. Backing Up Your Files: Yes, you know you should do it, but you just haven't had a minute. I'm as guilty as anyone. If my computer were to die today, I would be in trouble (I'm going to back up as soon as I finish writing this!). To help preserve my documents, I've been creating and opening files in Google Docs. This allows me to access my files anywhere because they are saved on the Google server. Using del.icio.us to tag my bookmarks also preserves my important links Online.

Finally, there are several free utilities you can use to help you to automate your backup process. Here is a great blog post that summarizes and explains the free backup software that is available on the Web.

2. MIT OpenCourseWare - Highlights For High School: MIT has made A.P. Bio, Physics and Calculus lecture notes, materials, labs and videos of lectures available for free Online. This site has materials that teachers can use to supplement their lessons. Students can use this Website to get extra help, find resources and/or to help them decide if they want to pursue a subject. Finally, if you always wanted to learn calculus, this is the Website for you.
