RIT Faculty and Staff will be provided 10 GB per per user on the Ensemble server. Faculty teaching online courses will be provided a quota increase per online course based on need defined in course design. The current quota was derived from a combination of current use and current course design best practices. TLS will conduct regular use reviews to monitor quota allocation and adjust as necessary.
Currently students will not be provided storage space on the Ensemble server. Student work for courses should be submitted via a faculty-configured Ensmble dropbox.
Quota Increase Process: Faculty can submit a quota increase request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include full name, user ID, and a short justification for more space. TLS staff will review the request and evaluate current media use on the server. If TLS determines that there is a large amount of unused media in the account, a quota increase will not be approved until an effort has been made to remove media.
TWC will run reports once a year to look for faculty/staff that are no longer active. TWC will investigate if any of the media is shared with other accounts.
Media associated with accounts that have been inactive for one year will be removed.
Faculty should have a local backup of media published to Ensemble. Ensemble is a streaming media service and is not intended to serve as longer term storage for inactive video files.
