This is the second course in a series of eight courses designed to help you prepare for the ACA-Mac Integration exam. In this course, you'll look at how you can share personal files and how to access them.
Without file sharing you would not be able to collaborate on projects, ask for input on documents, or provide a central location where all files can exist and be backed up. In this course, Sharing and Accessing Shared Folders with Mac, you'll develop the skills to use AirDrop and public folders for quick and easy file sharing. First, you'll learn how to share files using AirDrop and how to take advantage of the public and Dropbox folders. Next, you'll learn how to configure personal file sharing. Finally, you'll learn about sharing with OS X server and how to access files on both Mac and Windows shared folders. By the end of this course, you'll be able to not only discuss the different ways you can share files and folders with others, but you'll also be able to show someone the proper way to share files with others.
Course Overview Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Ken Mauldin, and welcome to my course on Sharing and Accessing Shared Folders with Mac. I'm a technical trainer at Fortinet, a network security company, and an author here at Pluralsight. This course is designed to help prepare you for taking the Apple certified associate Mac integration exam, but it's also helpful for learning the different ways that we can share files and folders with others. In this course, we're going to look at how we can use different techniques to share files with other users on our network and how to access those shared folders. Some of the major topics that we will cover include sharing files with AirDrop, how to take advantage of the public and Dropbox folders, configuring personal file sharing, sharing with OS X Server, and how to access files on both Windows and Mac servers and workstations. By the end of this course, you'll be able to not only discuss the different ways you can share files and folders with others, but you will be able to also show someone the proper ways and techniques to not only share the files, but also access the files. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with OS X Basics and how to navigate through finder and the system preferences. A basic knowledge of what permissions are and how they are used is a good recommendation, but it's not a requirement. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn file sharing with Sharing and Accessing Shared Folders with Mac course here at Pluralsight.
