Faculty Center features in ctcLink

We have been getting lots of activity in the ‘askctclink’ inbox. Thanks for all your great questions.

Periodically, we’ll share one of your questions, and the answer, on the blog.
Here’s one now!

Q: Will faculty be able to send email communication to their classes via PeopleSoft? If so, will they be able to email classes individually and as a group?

A: Yes, in the Faculty Center, faculty will have the option of sending communications to individual students, or they may choose to send a communication to the entire group from their class roster.

In fact, there are many self-service features available to faculty in PeopleSoft’s Faculty Center. Here’s an overview of some Faculty Center features, with a focus on the grading process.

Just think…with winter quarter soon coming to a close, Spokane and Tacoma will be using the old grading system just a couple more times before transitioning to ctcLink and the new Faculty Center in fall 2014. (Training on the essential functions in Faculty Center will be available to faculty at FirstLink colleges prior to the end of this spring quarter, with additional training opportunities slated for fall quarter).
