Quite often we will give a researcher access to a web experiment by giving a webdav enabled url, a username and password. This page describes how to use this url. In the remainder of this page we will assume that you were given the url https://exp.socsci.ru.nl/experiment/webdav.php, the username u123456 and the password PASSWORD.

Webbrowser

To use the url in a webbrowser, just open the page and type username and password in the popup dialog. This will give you a limited number of features (upload file, make directory, ...)

Microsoft Windows

One can use the Microsoft Windows """Map Network Drive""" feature to assign a drive letter. No special Windows program is needed to do this. It is an operating system feature. Note that there are quite a few issues. If you use Microsoft Windows it is usually a better idea to use an external program for accessing a webdav drive.
