University Computer Lab at BAS

Sharing files with students using the S-Drive (S:)

There is always the need to provide students with support materials in the form of Power Point presentation files, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, data files, etc. Many students come to the Computer Lab to work on their assignments. If you need to make some files available to your students, you can do it directly from your office computer. The material will be readily available to students from:

  • the BAS Computer Lab and BAS master classroom computers,
  • any computer connected to the campus network, or
  • any computer connected to the Internet. This will allow students to "download" such material from home. This requires the use of a Web Browser
