  8. Attacking Virtual Classroom Storage

  9. Virtual Classroom Storage Let’s model our approach after the paradigm that has been working for over 100 years. • Student Lockers – Personal Storage for the Student • Classrooms – Where the teacher interacts with the students. All classrooms in the school operate on the same basic premise but the teacher controls. • Teacher Desks – Personal Storage for the Teacher. • Classroom Areas – Function-specific areas of the classroom. Teacher controls the layout of these and students have controlled access. • Student Desks in the Classroom – Personal area in the class for the student. Off limits to all except the owning student and the teacher. • The model works, plus the user base already understands it!

  18. Where’s my stuff? • Users need an easy way to find their storage …even if you need to move it. • Personal Storage and Group Storage. • Map a Drive? There’s only so many letters in the alphabet. • Login Script Management is a headache for group storage. • Client-based access using URAccess™ • Web-based access using IUAdmin™ (optionally tied to a Portal)

  19. URAccess: Client-based Access to Virtual Class Storage • End-User tool for dynamically building personalized access links to storage. • Leverages Home_Directory user attribute for personal storage. • Leverages cccFSFactoryHomedir group attribute for shared storage. • Creates a local set of UNC paths and description presented to the user in a Windows UI. • Like App-Launcher for ZENworks, except provides access to storage. • List can be refreshed at any time. • Supports multiple tree connections.
