As questions come my way, I’m posting answers here in the hopes that they may be helpful to others reading them.
- Wow, I really like this machine. I am a Mac novice and have so much to learn. Thanks for all the online support. I want to set up a multi media project file for next year. One that our 2nd grade team, and special area teachers can access all the time as we document our new service learning project about wildlife habitat. Can you point me in a direction to which application(s) could be helpful?
- I got my mac yesterday (and LOVE it!), but forgot to ask how to access FAWEB and the rest of the network, for that matter. I have my u-drive, but where’s the network?
If you are just looking for a shared storage space, I would suggest you install dropbox (http://dropbox.com) on your machine—it’s an awesome online file storage service that allows you to sync and share files to the internet, and it gives you 2gb of free space. It’s also super simple to use. Once you do this, you can create a shared folder and share it with all your colleagues very easily, and you’ll be able to access it anywhere/anytime.
Faweb is bookmarked in all of the browsers—you access it just like you would previously. It should be under wms in the bookmarks bar, where you will also find a lot of other helpful bookmarks (outlook, online directory, etc).
The url to faweb, in case you need it is http://education.westminster.net/faweb7
I’m not sure what you mean by the network—if you mean the K: drive and others, it’s possible to connect to those as well, but it will take a bit of time to get this set up. Eventually, it will be very similar to how you’ve used it in the past.
