Owncloud access

For files that you want to retain on campus and protect (this is usually for large, copyrighted  files), we provide a service called own cloud.  Before requesting that this be set up for you, please explore other avenues such as the library reserve, Youtube, Blackboard, vimeo …  While these are off campus services i.e. in the cloud, they have useful safeguards and can be streamed.

To request an owncloud account contact octet@oberlin.edu to get set up with an account.

Basic instructions:

Once the account is set up, log in to your folder by going to https://octet1.csr.oberlin.edu/owncloud using the credentials you were given by the OCTET staff.

  • Get the shareable link and paste it into your website or Blackboard site.  You may want to password protect the link (add the password directly to Blackboard post). Without the password, anyone that stumbles across the link would be able to view the item.
