Servers & Backups
Your class may make use of a class server for handouts and turning in assignments. Your instructor will notify you if your class uses one. You will log in to any class servers with your MCAD Login credentials.
At the conclusion of each semester, all faculty are required to submit a selection of completed student assignments and/or project documentation for each of their classes to their Department Chair.
In order to access MCAD servers from a Windows computer, you'll need to install and use a program called an SFTP client. We recommend the use of the free program FileZilla. FileZilla can be downloaded here.
1. Plug in a Thunderbolt or USB drive to your MacBook Pro. It is strongly suggested that the drive be properly formatted using the "Mac OS Extended" file format.
