Managing Digital Assets
Welcome! This week will be a little different. We’re going to deep dive into a critical part of working with digital tools - managing digital assets. It’s one thing to search the Internet, but what do you do with the materials you find? And when you begin to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, where should you store them safely and how do you organize them efficiently? This week we’ll show you how managing your files will help you work smarter and faster.
This week you’ll meet musician, producer, and record label owner Mannie Fresh to find out how he uses digital tools to make music. You’ll also go inside the Cloud to learn how it has changed the way we back up, store, and share files. Be sure to complete both the Strayer Story and Strayer Talk this week! (10 pts)
This week is all about digital information management - both online and on your local computer. What is it, why is it so important, and how can you best make it work for you?
