The Project Directory Service (PDS) provides “project” disk space for each individual course-section being offered in the current academic semester. Space is created automatically for every course in Banner. This space includes folders for the course instructor as well as every student in the course. The information for this space is updated nightly from Banner, so any changes in course enrollment are automatically generated. Folders for students who drop a course are moved into a special withdrawn area of the PDS space. Any files placed in these folders which require streaming are also automatically streamed via IUP’s streaming server.
To access the PDS, faculty and students must log in with their IUP network username and password. PDS security is managed via NTFS permissions.
The initial course-section quota is set to 2 MB. Instructors can easily increase this quota to 250 MB, 1 GB, or 2 GB by using the PDS Quota Utility.
Quota needs beyond 2 GB may be requested through creating a ticket in ihelp.
