I: or Instructional Drive

The I: or Instructional Drive provides storage space on the network for instructors to use in teaching courses or conducting research. An I: drive folder is automatically created for every course offered through the Registrar’s Office. Both the instructor and students will have access to a course I: drive. Instructors interested in using an I: drive for research purposes should contact the HelpDesk at (765) 658-4294 or HelpDesk@depauw.edu.

Common uses for course I: drives

  • Providing students additional network storage space for large or collaborative course projects.
  • Submitting and returning student assignments.
  • Posting course materials or restricted websites.
  • Research projects.
