To download files to or upload files from the Electromeet remote labs, for the completion of projects and assessments, the “File Manager” function is provided once a scheduled lab is active.
It is available from the Book and Access Labs menu:
Or from the link in the menu bar at the top of the window once connected to a lab:
Clicking the corresponding button opens a new dialog frame with the file manager:
The components of the file manager correspond with the number in the above image:
You will only be able to directly transfer files or folders from an external computer to the student file transfer directory on a lab; once it is in this directory, you may then transfer it elsewhere on the lab (i.e. the desktop) if required but this is not advised.
Folders and files selectable with a single click. Click outside the selection to de-select or click the clear-selection button. Select multiple files or folders by holding ctrl and clicking each in the current directory. Double-click a folder to open it and change the file path. The file path is also clickable for navigation through the directories.
To close the File Manager, click outside of the file manager dialog frame.
You can also delete, download or rename files and folders by right clicking on them and selecting the corresponding option:
While uploading or downloading files, you will be able to see the progress indicator in the bottom left corner of the frame:
Using the tool bar, you can go navigate back and forth in your directory access history using the left and right arrows. You may also jump into any folder above the current one by clicking on its name in the file path:
The grey icons are only activate once a file or folder is selected.
The File Manager also supports drag and drop for uploads; simply drag a folder from your computer into the window showing the contents of the current directory to begin the upload:
The home student file transfer directory and all sub directories, folders, and files may be accessed on a lab using a shortcut found on the desktop:
From an external software package, to select a file within, you may navigated to the corresponding file path by opening the Student File Transfer shortcut on the desktop; then copy the file path of this directory for opening the files required for you assessment or project in other software:
You are required to clean up any files added to the labs upon completion; or back them up locally on their computers as EIT cannot guarantee they will remain on the lab for the next session.
