Itâ€™s finally happening. After this semester ends we will never again have to type RamCT into our web browser. Weâ€™ll never again have to look at that ugly, dated layout. Weâ€™ll never again have to spend hours searching for our syllabus or our homework through utterly nonsensical menus.
The days of the RamCT you know are over, and itâ€™s about time.
Starting this summer semester, RamCT Campus Edition 8 will be tossed out for RamCT Blackboard. This new website will feature a more efficient interface â€“â€“ something we as students desperately need. It will also have drag-and-drop file uploads and an improved grade center.
These improvements will fix major flaws in the current class management system we use. It was almost more difficult to upload a paper to RamCT than it was to write the damn thing â€“â€“ what with the constant error messages. Most of the time, the â€œMy Gradesâ€ section of the old RamCT is a complete mess.
Thereâ€™s another bonus to this updated RamCT. Most teachers currently donâ€™t even bother with the Stone Age RamCT. From their end, the system is such a disaster that they donâ€™t even put their classes online for students.
With an interface that makes even the least bit of sense, hopefully teachers will be encouraged to provide their students with a valuable online tool like RamCT.
Our student lives are stressful enough already, and professorâ€™s lives too, so thanks CSU for finally canning the piece-of-crap RamCT weâ€™ve been forced to suffer through for years.
