Handy programs to put on a USB stick
The first program I really felt I needed to carry around with me was Audacity – it was a program I was using a lot to introduce lecturers to podcasting, and it wasn’t installed by default on the University’s computers. So here’s a great idea – keeping a selection of useful programs on a USB stick/flash drive. Useful for any trainer, especially in those institutional settings where you don’t have admin access to the computer.
Portable Apps is a menu driven ‘work suite’ for your flash drive (or any external drive – could be a external hard drive). You download the PortableApps.exe file, and when you run the setup (choosing either a full or a lightweight version) it installs working applications on your flash drive.
