Because the Media Commons computers wipe themselves clean 36 hours after you log off, you will need to make sure that you save your work so that you can open it again the next time you are in one of our locations. The Media Commons Storage Space will allow you to save your work on a Media Commons computer and then pull it back up at a later time. This tutorial will tell you how to sign up for the space.

At the top of the next page, click the purple button that says Sign Up for MC Storage Space.

You will then need to log in with your Penn State Access Account. Once you do, you will be redirected to a new page where you will need to fill out some information to sign up for the space.

First you will need to give your project a name. Make sure that you choose a name that is distinct to your project and type it into the Project Name field.

When you are done, click the button next to project name that says Check Project Name Availability.

A green check mark will come up next to your project name if the name is available.

Next, you can add all the members of your group onto the project folder so that everyone has access to it when they log onto the computer. Simply type in each members user ID and click the button Add User.

If done correctly, your group member’s name will appear underneath where you added it.

Now all you have to do is scroll to the bottom of the page and it the green button that says I Agree to all of the Media Commons Storage Space Terms of Use.

Once you’ve completed this, a page will come up letting you know that your space has been created and is ready for use.
