Academic Torrents: a torrents site made by and directed to Educators/Researchers

Academic Torrents: a torrents site made by and directed to Educators/Researchers | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Currently making 1.67TB of research data available.

Sharing data is hard. Emails have size limits, and setting up servers is too much work. We've designed a distributed system for sharing enormous datasets - for researchers, by researchers. The result is a scalable, secure, and fault-tolerant repository for data, with blazing fast download speeds. Contact us at joecohen@cs.umb.edu.

Alfredo Corell's insight:
What it means for you?

The academic torrents system offers blazing fast download speeds and a site for searching available datasets from various sources. For sharing, distributing datasets on the network means no more setting up file servers, less bandwidth usage, and maximum uptime.

How To Organize Your Research With The Power Of Google Drive | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Google Docs has made its home on Google Drive. So after one year, it’s high time to get used to calling it by the new account name.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

There are certain advantages to using Google Drive for your research work. It’s free and available from everywhere of course. Everyone with a Google account has it by default. Tied to your Google account, it gives you a range of collaboration options. It only gets better from here as you can use the Research tool to power all your probes and quests.
