How to share links
Please make sure stuff isn’t restricted!
The main thing here is to make sure that another human (usually me) has the ability to look at the file. A good way to test this out quickly is to open an incognito or private browsing link (ie where you aren’t logged into your respective fileshare account and see if the link works.
File and folder naming conventionsName your folders like so:
[number of class]_[your last name][your first name]_[name of project]So the COVID-19 Safety Campaign project folder for me, in a class with the number DES4100, it would look like this:
DES4100_SantiagoBenjamin_COVID19SafetyCampaignIf you resubmit a project, create a new folder with an increased version number:
DES4100_SantiagoBenjamin_ COVID19SafetyCampaign _v02
Name your files similarly, but add some context to what each file is. Something like this:
[number of class]_[your last name][your first name]_name of project]_[camel case description of individual file].[file extension]The seventh image for a project’s .png file might be named like this:
If you’re working in a group, please place your team name in lieu of your name, and make sure that you document your own contributions.
[number of class]_[your team name or number]_name of project]_[camel case description of individual file].[file extension]So the name of the file might be:
DES4100_CoolPeeps_COVID19SafetyCampaign.pdfSpecifically for team projects you’ll probably want to also upload your project files (ie .PSD, .AI, fonts) just in case they need to be updated in a hurry.
I’m not going to be a stickler about things, for example if you prefer dashes, or just spaces, to underscores that’s fine. I prefer double underscores which feels like overkill a lot of the time. The point is that I can see, based on an individual file or folder, what class, student and project the file or folder relates to. I will let you know if you’re not naming files properly to an extent that it becomes an issue. The way this will manifest as detrimental to your grade in an individual assignment will be if you’re sending me files like...Untitled-1.png Please do not do that. Thanks!
