Delta Dog Offers Tips for Tackling Training

Delta Dog Have you been putting off taking the first ctcLink training course, PeopleSoft Fundamentals? Delta Dog is here to help.

Just as with any big project, the key is breaking it down into manageable pieces. Simply follow Delta Dog’s training schedule. Let’s get going:

Right now, go to your calendar and beginning tomorrow, block out 30 minutes each day for the next 10 days.

Delta DogReally, Delta Dog is serious about this. She’ll wait patiently while you take a moment to go to your calendar.

All done? Great!

Tomorrow, when your 30-minute session rolls around, come back to this blog post.

By following Delta Dog’s 10-day schedule, you can cross this course off your to-do list:

Start Your 10-Day Program

Day 1

The first step is to register for the PeopleSoft Fundamentals course. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the ctcLink Implementation Phase Canvas Course Registration page (opens new tab on the SBCTC website).
  2. Complete the registration. For Institution, choose Highline College from the pull-down menu. For Email Address, enter your Highline email address (e.g., deltadog@highline.edu).
  3. Select the first course, New PeopleSoft Fundamentals 9.2.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Sign Me Up!
  5. Go to Highline’s Canvas page.
  6. Log in to your Canvas account using your Highline credentials. Your MyHighline Username is the first part of your Highline email address (e.g., deltadog) and your Password is your Highline password.
  7. Find the 9.2 PeopleSoft Fundamentals course by clicking on Courses on the left-hand sidebar.
  8. Click on PeopleSoft Fundamentals to open the course.
  9. Read the information on the opening page, which is the course syllabus.
  10. If you still have time remaining in your 30-minute block, dive into Module 1. If not, come back tomorrow, knowing you have everything ready to go.

Days 2-9

On these days, you’ll likely complete one — or almost one — module each day. There are eight modules in PeopleSoft Fundamentals. Since we all read and learn at different rates, your time on each module will differ from that of your coworker. But as a rough estimate, each module takes 20 to 40 minutes to complete.
