How to Use MavDISK

MavDISK Special Features

Course Folders

When you register for a class, you are provided access to the course folder for the respective class. Professors can place files in the "ClassWorkspace" folder and students can submit and share files in the Documents folder. Course folders are available under your R: drive on campus public computers, by using SSL VPN to open mavdiskmsu, or by mapping a drive to mavdiskmsu. Classes in which students are not registered are not visible. Class folders remain visible for one semester after the course completion.
