Free training sessions introduce CSU to RamLink

January 11, 2012

CSU will offer three training sessions this spring for faculty, staff, and student organization leaders who want to learn more about using the new RamLink system.

All CSU departments and organizations, including student organizations, can use the new RamLink System to share information about events, classes, and activities directly with students who opt-in to the system. RamLink essentially functions as an intranet for internal campus communication and provides an easy Facebook and Twitter interface, which may make it a more effective vehicle for communicating with students than email. Access is available to anyone with a CSU eID.

The Office of Student Leadership, Involvement, and Community Engagement (SLiCE) - in partnership with the Office of the President - will host three separate trainings this spring:

  • 1-3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27
  • 1-3 p.m. Wed., Feb. 29
  • 10-noon Friday, March 23

All will take place in Room 174 Morgan Library. The sessions are free, but seating is limited so reservations are required.

To register, please contact Katie Woodcox, Office of the President, (970) 491-6211; katie.woodcox@colostate.edu.

A collection of RamLink tutorials are also available on YouTube (just go to YouTube and search for “RamLink Tutorial”).

With new limitations on use of the RamSelect email function (see story in Today@ColoradoState), departments are encouraged to begin using RamLink as a communications tool. (Only official university communications addressing students’ academics, billing, and progress toward a degree may be sent through the RamSelect email system.)

Student organizations are encouraged to use RamLink as their primary vehicle for membership recruitment and communications. While faculty and staff advisors to such organizations may still download lists for use by student organizations, despite encouragement to use other systems instead, those messages can no longer be emailed out under the “RamSelect” header that implies endorsement and/or sponsorship by the University.
