If you need to see detailed information about an assignment, course, or program, TaskStream offers a simple way to generate a report about this information. You can either aggregate the data, or see the breakdown by student. You can choose to see all students, or only those associated with a particular evaluator. You can also specify the date range, although this will only be effective if evaluations were completed punctually.
Here is a PDF document showing how to complete these reports:
If you have recorded a video with a cell phone or camcorder that is too big to upload to TaskStream, please see the following document for instructions on using Handbrake to easily trim and compress your video:
If you are trying to access videos on the Purdue MediaSpace streaming video server using Internet Explorer (IE) and the videos are not playing, please see the following PDF document that should help resolve the problem:
If the steps in the above PDF do not work, you may want to try using Firefox. If the video does not play in Firefox, please be sure that the “Adobe Flash” plugin is enabled in Firefox (see screenshot on page two of the above PDF).
Although ITaP’s Exchange server is configured to hold permanently deleted items in a dumpster for 30 days after being deleted, it is not possible to do an individual mailbox restore to a previous point in time. So, even though items deleted within 30 days can be recovered, folder structures and original locations of deleted items cannot be restored. The Education IT team recommends that users periodically make a complete backup of their Exchange data by exporting to an Outlook Data File (.PST). The process for doing this on a Windows computer is outlined below.
PLEASE NOTE: Purdue has licensed Microsoft OneDrive for the entire campus and all faculty and staff members have been allocated 1 TB of space in OneDrive. The Education IT team is now encouraging all of our users to transition to OneDrive (which is a component of Office 365). Here is a video showing how to use OneDrive in Office 365:

Are you looking for network file storage for your research workgroup? Now that the Purdue Data Depot has been created, Education IT is recommending that all research workgroups consider using the Purdue Data Depot which is designed specifically for research workgroups and research data. Here is the web site:
“The Data Depot is a high-capacity, fast, reliable and secure data storage service designed, configured and operated for the needs of Purdue researchers in any field and shareable with both on-campus and off-campus collaborators.”
“All research groups at Purdue are eligible for a 100 GB Data Depot trial space free of charge.”
We believe the Purdue Data Depot will be a better solution than using traditional file storage systems that research groups have used in the past. You can initiate a request for the free 100 GB of research storage space by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by going to this web page:
The Research Computing Group can walk you through the process of setting up a shared storage space for your research workgroup. Then, the Education IT team can assist you in gaining access via your office workstation(s) or laptop(s) as needed. If you need more space than the free 100 GB, you can purchase additional increments of 1 TB for $150.00 per year.
Please feel free to contact the Research Computing Group directly. Or, if you prefer, the Education IT team would be happy to contact them on your behalf.
