Managing Your MINERS Class Folder

What is the MINERS Class Folder?

The MINERS class folder has three main features:

  1. Students can place their assignments on a shared drive visible to only the student, TA, and instructor. There is no need to email assignments anymore.
  2. Instructors and TAs can place handouts and examples on the corresponding folders so students can look at them, but not edit them.
  3. Instructors and TAs can share data privately by creating folders outside the three standard folders (Assignments, Handouts, and Examples). Students cannot view the created folders.

How do I request a MINERS Class Folder?

Faculty Members: Please email your class CRN and UTEP Login to sysman@utep.edu. If you have TAs or additional instructors, please include their UTEP login in the email as well.

If any students register late, the TA will need to provide a list of those students' name and UTEP login.
