Throughout this semester and your career as an architecture student, you will be working in computer labs. As a result, you will need to store your work on a portable device. You will need that flash drive to complete this exercise, which is due at the end of class today.
- Please view and follow Digital Life 0.3 [dropbox portable] as demonstrated in lecture.
- You will now have a flash drive that conforms to the 3-2-1 backup principles discussed in lecture.
- As we discussed in lecture, calendars are a critical part of your organizational system. While you may choose to use a different piece of software on your personal computer, your mobile calendar needs to be a web-enabled calendar or a portable version of a desktop calendar in order to be effective.
- I recommend starting with a web-based calendar. There are many out there, but I’ve found Google Calendar to be easy, full-featured, and free. If you don’t already have a Google account, you can sign up for one (http://calendar.google.com). Other options include outlook.com and yahoo.com.
- Next, follow Digital Life 0.5 and Digital Life 0.11 to add our course calendar to your Google Calendar.
- You may also wish to add your other courses to your calendar to help keep you organized.
- Optional: If you wish to have a desktop version of your calendar, follow Digital Life Tutorial 0.10 to install Sunbird Portable on your flash drive. To sync Google Calendar to Sunbird, follow Digital Life 0.6b.
- When you have finished setting up your calendar, please raise your hand and show me before the end of class today.
- The calendar feed for Archi 135 is:
- Today we also discussed consolidating your email accounts. While the following is recommended, it is optional and not required for the course.
- Log in to you school email.
- Set up email forwarding to the email address you frequently use so that school emails will be sure to reach you.
- Consider forwarding other, infrequenlty used email addresses to your primary inbox.
