Class File Space

Overview

Class file space on the Engineering file services structure is provided for both electronic files and online coursework. Only registered instructors have write access to the directory and all registered students have read access. Additionally, instructors and class assistants have permissions in the webpage subfolder. If you need to request file space for a class that does not already exist on the network, contact ETS.

File Space Location

    On Windows:

  • T:\classes\<course prefix>\<course number>
  • On Linux:

  • /top/classes/<course prefix>/<course number>

In the examples above, “course prefix” is the 2-4 letter designation for the class, such as “MECH” for Mechanical Engineering or “ECE” for Electrical & Computer Engineering. The “course number” used above matches the class designation, such as “ECE102” or “MECH324”.

 

The class directory has two sub-directories by default:

  • www
    Documents placed within this directory will be viewable via the Internet at
    http://www.engr.colostate.edu/<course number>/
  • drop-box
    Only instructors have read and write access to this folder, but students may “drop” files here. Do not copy a folder into a drop-box because its contents will then become unreadable, instead archive the folder into a “zip” file and then drop that archived file into the drop-box.)

 

In addition to file space provided by the College, instructors have access to University supported Canvas to provide electronic class files and information. Please refer to the Canvas site for more information.
