About Cloud Storage

Instead of saving your files to your computer or a USB drive, you may save your files in the "cloud." Cloud storage allows you to access your files from any device with an internet connection. Examples of cloud storage include OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox.


myLesley now allows you to connect to multiple cloud storage apps, allowing you to easily add an attachment or submit an assignment that you stored online. Please note that when you add a file from cloud storage the system makes a copy of the file in your course. Once you have added a file to myLesley from cloud storage, any changes you make to the original file will not be reflected in myLesley.


If you are using a shared computer, HyFlex equipment, or are borrowing someone else's device, be sure to clear your cookies and site data after you sign out. This will ensure that other users can’t access your files in cloud storage.
