Each term, class folders are automatically created for each class section on the server classes.stolaf.edu. Students are automatically granted access to those classes for which they are registered. Likewise, when faculty are granted access to those classes they are teaching. Faculty may request TA's be added to their course mailing lists (see above) and they will be granted access to the corresponding class directory.
Access to the class folders is on the same schedule printed above for the e-mail mailing lists. Faculty wishing to prepare class directories for upcoming semesters can request the class folders for their class sections be created ahead of time. Such requests can be made via e-mail to email@example.com and should include the department, course number(s), and section letter(s) for the needed folders.
Each class directory has a disk quota of 50MB. Faculty can request disk quota increases for class directories via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Macs, the class folders can be found on the Classes volume which is accessible from the server classes.stolaf.edu. When mounted on your desktop, you will see an icon labeled 'CLASSES'. Within CLASSES you will see any class directories to which you have access.
On PCs, class folders appear on the L: drive.
If you need assistance in connecting to classes.stolaf.edu, please contact the IT HelpDesk at x3830 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Class folders are usually accessed directly from classes.stolaf.edu, but are also accessible via the web, so even off-campus users can gain access to class materials, including faculty wishing to post materials to the class folders. Web access to the materials is available via the web server Axel. For full details, please review the information at http://www.stolaf.edu/services/iit/documentation/remotefiles/.
Explanation of the folders within a class folder
Each class folder is automatically created with the following
The Class Materials folder is used to store materials used by the class, such as a syllabus, papers, etc.
The Library Materials folder is used by the Library to put "e-reserves" or documents that you have placed on reserve.
The Professor folder is only used by faculty and TA's to store private information about the class, such as class lists, grades, etc.
The Student Shared folder is a place where groups of students can collaborate on documents.
