Class Folders

Description:

This page provides information about Student Class Folders. 

Each class folder, on the Iridium file server, has a limit of 800 MB. This storage can not be increased.

Available To:

  • Faculty (currently appointed) and Staff
  • Students Admitted to UT Arlington

How to Get:

Student class folders are located on the Iridium server and are used by many instructors as means to collect homework (for example as a "drop box") or to share files. If you are an instructor and would like to setup a a class folder instead of using MavSpace, contact our Help Desk at helpdesk@uta.edu.

How to Use:

Unlike the J: and K: drives, class folders are not mapped automatically. If your computer is on the UTA domain or if you are connected to the network using VPN (off campus) or UTA Wireless Network(on campus) you can manually map the drive. Alternatively, you could access your class folders using FTP software.

Depending on the access method you choose to use, the server/folder location is going to be \\iridium\classes\ or iridium.uta.edu > classes:
