Paws Up

Golden Paw AwardctcLink is not simply a matter of adapting to new software, it’s about changing how we work. This change is taking a lot of kibble to make sure we are successful.

Through Paws Up, Delta Dog and the ctcLink team celebrate the extraordinary efforts of Highline employees with the Golden Paw Award.

Beginning in October 2020, award winners will be announced more regularly.

Chau Trac, Accounting Manager, Financial Services
Chau has completed more ctcLink training courses in Canvas than anyone else — 38 courses with an average score of 92.4. You read that right, 38 courses!

“I am very excited for ctcLink to replace the current system since ctcLink would allow us to do so much more automatically rather than manually in the current system we have,” Chau said. “In finance specifically, we will have better history records in ctcLink than in FMS where the previous records would go away if you replace it with new information.”

Her tip for tackling ctcLink training courses? Start early. She advises “not to wait until the very last minute. There is so much information we can learn in there that rushing it would not be an effective way to learn.”

Thank you, Chau, and paws up to you. (For more tips, read “Delta Dog Offers Tips for Tackling Training.”)

Justin has been getting courses into Curriculog, doing PeopleSoft course catalog build, and validating data, all while completing 13 ctcLink training courses. And if that isn’t impressive enough, he is also working on implementing Campus CE, which will make enrolling in Continuing Education courses easier for our students.

Kili Cambra, Raegan Copeland, Justin Farris, Mondi Fournier, Jill Hammitt and Crystal Kitterman
These Highline staff members started building out our courses in the live ctcLink environment. They converted 8,642 courses into the new system and put in many hours updating course information, leading the pack with the most updates completed by the end of the fourth day by all Deployment Group 4 (DG4) colleges. While this work will take more time to complete, these six stars helped us get off to a great start.
