I am pleased to announce that Highline College is now live on ctcLink. All conversion and migration activities over the weekend went smoothly. Pat Daniels is doing a happy dance, Delta Dog is wagging her tail and I’m wiping my brow. We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.
As I’ve said before, Go-Live doesn’t mark the end of our ctcLink project, but it does signal a significant milestone. Our project will continue as we activate employees and students on the system, help them learn how to navigate the system’s functionality and assess how our internal business processes need to be refined to efficiently work in the new ctcLink environment.
On Wednesday, February 10, I will send instructions on how to activate your ctcLink account. Our subjects matter experts (SMEs) will be activating today (they know who they are). They will perform additional spot checks of data, follow up on minor issues identified through validation activities, and perform other activities that are critical to the success of our business processes in the new system. We ask the rest of our faculty and staff to wait until February 10 so we can provide support and guidance. Students will begin activation on February 16.
As a reminder, Legacy access is available in a read-only mode.
We should all be fiercely proud of ourselves and our colleagues for the vast amount of work that has made this transition possible, especially given the challenges of doing all of this work in a remote environment.
There are many people to thank, which I will do in the near future, but for now I want to single out Pat Daniels, ctcLink project manager, for her many years of dedication to this project. It’s been a long time coming. Through it all, she’s brought steady leadership, incredible patience, vast knowledge and much-needed optimism. Pat, thank you.
On behalf of the Highline ctcLink Project Team, thanks to you all.
