Transport and CampusFiles
Transport [Drop box & FFS]
The Drop box is designed to function as a collection bin for
student work. Students should drag a local copy of files they wish to
submit into the Drop box. Users should not save directly into the Drop
box. In addition, students only have access to files they have placed in
the Drop box. They cannot modify files that do not belong to them.
File-for-Students [FFS] allows the instructor to share files with students. The faculty may place starter files or templates in the folder for students to copy.
| Navigating Transport on the Macintosh
Once connected to Transport, users will find a volume labeled InstructorFirstname_Lastname_Transport on the desktop. Drop box and FFS are inside the volume.
| Navigation Transport on a Windows PC
Transport will appear as DRIVE T on the Windows PC.
Connecting to Transport
A shortcut named “Connect to your Class Share” has been placed on every student’s and faculty’s Windows PC desktop that allows the user to connect to Transport. When the appropriate instructor name is entered, the “T:” drive will be mapped. In the case of Macintosh computer, a shortcut named "Transport v2.0" has been placed on the Finder menu.
Please bear in mind that the FIT IS NOT responsible for loss of files and directories in Transport. If any user notices that any share is not working, he/she must notify 7-Help immediately.
Personal Storage Area “CAMPUSFILES”
Each student is given a personal folder for storage of files under his or her account. Once you log on, you can access your student folder by double clicking on the "DRIVE Y:" in "My Computer" on a Windows PC [firstname_last_CAMPUSFILS]. You may also access the storage area on a Macintosh by double clicking on volume labeled firstname_last_CAMPUSFILES from the desktop.
Important Reminder: You may use your CAMPUSFILES directory to store files permanently. It is suggested that all users back-up their files by using either a USB external storage device, CD, or DVD.
Please call 7-HELP if you need help with this or any other technical matter.
