Using Webdav and Cyberduck

For my job, I will need to learn how to use both WebDAV and Cyberduck. I am unfamiliar with both of these and fairly new to the game. Does anyone have suggestions of what Treehouse courses show how to use these or similar programs?

Cyberduck is the program you use to connect to a server. You'll use Cyberduck to send files to your company's website. We don't have a course that shows how to use Cyberduck, but you can download a handy cheat sheet from the Cyberduck website: [https://trac.cyberduck.io/wiki/help/en].

WebDav is the way you connect to the web server. It's called a "protocol" and there are several different protocols available for connecting to servers: FTP, SFTP, and WebDav are examples.

When you startup Cyberduck you'll need select a WebDav connection and put in the information -- username, password, web address -- that Cyberduck needs to connect to the server.
