About Smash — Smash Like many ideas, Smash is the result of a frustration: the services used to send files securely are too complicated and too expensive. This often leads employees in enterprises to resort to tools that are certainly simpler to handle, but they are not always secure and they rarely enhance the enterprise’s image.

How I moved my websites to Dropbox and GitHub A few months ago I cancelled my hosting and server accounts and moved all my websites to the cloud.

As a way of participating in the Digital Literacies community, each week students were asked to contribute to the course wiki, a digital space where they contributed and described educational tools that they would recommend to students and other educators.
