Late last week, after careful consideration and assessment, ctcLink project leadership and FirstLink college leadership agreed to delay the February 23 ctcLink launch date for FirstLink colleges.
The decision came after a planned readiness assessment was conducted on all aspects of the project to determine a “go/no-go” decision. The analysis revealed more time is needed to complete all the critical tasks required for a successful rollout of ctcLink at Spokane, Spokane Falls and Tacoma community colleges. A new launch date will be proposed by mid-February.
Meantime, instructor-led training continues at Tacoma and Spokane. This week’s ctcLink training sessions included self-service for advisors, how to use the online Student Services Center, how to manage the online course catalog and schedule of classes, billing and invoices, online travel authorizations, processing expense reports, accounts receivable and much more!
In addition, training was provided for administrative assistants who work in academic departments to learn how to use the new software tools to assist in the enrollment process, make changes to courses, schedule and modify classes, provide information on the grading process, run reports and queries, review budget information, purchase materials, assist in travel arrangements and complete expense reports.
Here are some of the happy participants from one of those sessions in Spokane!
