EWC Adds New Communication Tool for Students
September 14, 2009
TORRINGTON, WY -
Eastern Wyoming College recently added a student portal called LancerNet. This portal allows students to have an EWC email account, to communicate with other students and faculty, and to receive email and text messages in an emergent situation.
LancerNet gives students access to: Blackboard, email, grades, account information, financial aid status, placement testing summary, transcripts, class schedule, and the ability to register and pay for classes and to view their current class schedule.
The College will also use LancerNet for campus news and announcements, and it will provide a method for on-line interaction with clubs. Students will also have access to online forums and chats. One of the nicest tools available will be a calendar that combines all activities, but gives students the option to filter down to see only the information they choose. Another new feature, Lancer Alert, is a campus-wide text alert system for emergencies.
LancerNet is accessible through the home page on the EWC website at ewc.wy.edu. This tool will be especially beneficial for students located in the outreach areas and will allow those students access to many of the same campus services as on-campus students.
