    Coursework on S: Drive

    When faculty log into any computer on the College network, they have access to the network drive Academic (\\ccac\academic) (S:). Faculty may copy data files, syllabi or other handouts for their students to this drive. Students working on campus or in computer labs can then copy these files to flash drives or print them out.

    Please discourage students from downloading files to the hard drive of a college computer. ITS cannot be responsible for files saved to the hard drive of a computer on the CCAC campuses. You should advise students to purchase and use a flash drive or to store their files on OneDrive or another cloud storage site.

    Faculty: To copy files to the Coursework S: Drive, follow the directions below.

    For Windows 7:

    Click the Start button.

    Click Computer.

    In the Network Location section, double-click Coursework (\\ccac\academic) (S:).


    For Windows 10:

    Click the File Explorer icon on the Task Bar.

    Click This PC.

    In the Network Locations section, double-click Academic (\\ccac.org)(S:).


    Once you are on the network drive you will see a listing of folders for specific instructors or courses. Please create a folder with your last name and course number, then copy the files you want to make available to your students to this folder.

    Departmental Shared Files: If instructors in a department wish to deploy common files to be shared with multiple instructors and course/sections, the department head may add a folder to the Coursework drive, using the course name as the name of the folder being added.

    Housekeeping: Faculty should make every attempt to perform housekeeping duties to keep only the files you currently need on your Coursework folder. Remove files you no longer need.

    You or your students may not be able to view folders or files on the Coursework drive if you are an administrator or staff person and do not have a faculty log-in script. If you are a faculty member and would like to request access on the S: Drive for your students, please send your request by email to the ServiceDesk at help@servicedesk.ccac.edu or by calling 412.237.8700.

    If your students encounter problems, please refer them to a technician in the
    Campus Open Lab or call the CCAC ServiceDesk at 412.237.8700.
