Orca Program Shares are networked file space accessible by only the Faculty and enrolled students for a particular program. They can be accessed from both on and off campus.

A share has the following structure:

  • Cubbies are individual folders for student work, which Faculty can access
  • Faculty is a space for Faculty only
  • Handouts is a way to provide materials to your students. Students can read but not write.
  • Instrument_data does not appear in every program share, but is used with scientific instrumentation
  • Workspace is an open space for everyone to share files

Lifecycle of a Program Share

Academic program shares on Orca are available for the duration of the academic offering. Once the program has finished, program folders are placed in a short term archive (STA) two weeks into the following quarter. These data are removed all together week 5 and available only 28 days past the point of deletion.

Faculty: Please contact Academic Computing as soon as possible 
if you wish to preserve any of these data after the quarter has finished!
