On February 16, Edmonds College launched ctcLink, a new self-service portal and mobile app that will provide students, faculty, and staff with an improved user experience to access college services! Edmonds College is one of 34 technical and community colleges across Washington state implementing the ctcLink system to give the campus community access to a modern, efficient way of conducting their college business.

Here is an example of how students will use ctcLink: 

  • Register for Spring Quarter classes
  • View and update student information 
  • Manage personal contact information
  • Pay tuition and fees 
  • View grades and track academic goals 
  • Apply for graduation
  • Contact instructors or advisor
  • And so much more!

Since early Fall quarter, Edmonds College staff have been taking intensive training to learn this new system. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we adapt to ctcLink. Edmonds College is constantly innovating and this new system will streamline a lot of procedures for the campus!

Do not worry! We are here to help. Get started on online learning with valuable resources and helpful information below.

Edmonds College use Canvas for online learning (see next question for more on Canvas).

To use Canvas, you will need:

  • A phone, tablet, or computer
  • A reliable internet connection
  • A web browser: Firefox and Chrome work best

The following technology are also suggested for online learning at Edmonds College:

  • PC Windows 7 or higher
  • Mac OS 10.4 or higher
  • A Chrome book will work though some applications do not run well 
  • A printer
  • A head set
  • Speakers
  • A web camera (if your computer does not have one built in)

Canvas supports the current and first previous major releases of the following browsers:

  • Chrome 83 and 84
  • Firefox 78 and 79 (Extended Releases are not supported*)
  • Edge 83 and 84
  • Respondus Lockdown Browser (supporting the latest system requirements)
  • Safari 12 and 13 (Macintosh only)
  • You should always use the most current version of your preferred browser. Your browser will notify you if there is a new version available.

Edmonds College uses Canvas for online learning and teaching. It allows professors to post grades, information, and assignments online. It is used by universities and colleges all over the world.

Canvas has a lot of features and tools that will make your online class interactive and engaging, but it can seem overwhelming at first. Here’s a quick explanation of some of the most commonly used parts of Canvas:

  • Announcements are a tool that your instructor can use to send out messages to the entire class.
  • Inbox is a tool that lets you and your instructors message each other. Copies of inbox messages are sent to the email address set in your Canvas profile.
  • Modules are a way that your instructor may organize your online class. Think of modules as folders that contain readings, media, and assignments you may have to do each week, chapter, or unit.
  • Assignments are just like assignments in a face-to-face class, except submitted online. You upload your work, your instructor gives you feedback, and you receive a grade.
  • Discussion boards are a way for you to interact and share ideas with your classmates and instructor online. Your instructor will post a topic and give you instructions, then you’ll share your ideas in a discussion board post. It’s just like a written conversation.
  • Grades is where you’ll find scores on assignments you’ve submitted in Canvas. It’s important to keep track of your progress so you can succeed in your online class.

First familiarize yourself with Canvas.
